Situated opposite to Amsterdam’s main railway station, Y-Towers form part of an ensemble of six skyscrapers on the northern bank of the River IJ having a direct ferry connection across the river.

Y-Towers is a mixed-use complex that consists in two towers reaching 110 meters of height: a residential one hosting over 250 dwellings and a second one hosting a congress hotel with 580 rooms and with a conference centre for 4,000 people. The two towers are connected in between by a podium realized of steel structures as a transparent third building so that bars, a restaurant, conference halls, and a hotel lobby, are visible from the street. The entire expanse of the podium’s roof will be used for gardens designed by Piet Oudolf.
