S-WEST, AN ELEGANT BLEND OF OWNER-OCCUPIED HOMES, RENTED HOMES AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES ALONG TORENALLEE AND INGENIEUR KALFFSTRAAT
The high tower
Frits is perhaps the best known member of the family. Although shy, we have linked his name to the building that will soon be towering head and shoulders over Strijp-S. Frits (Frederik Jacques) Philips followed Anton Philips as CEO in 1961 and he is the Philips company’s last CEO to bear the family name.
A prominent, high-rise tower on Torenallee designed by architect Jeroen Schippers, whose inspiration came from the existing buildings at Strijp-S and from the iconic Velasca Tower in Milan. Comprising nineteen stories, Frits reaches a height of over sixty metres. The building houses 87 apartments ranging from just under 60m2 to an extremely spacious 230m2 two-storey penthouse, featuring what else but a more than generous roof terrace with stunning views!
