Zandvoort water tower

The water tower at the Thorbeckestraat in Zandvoort is 48 m high and was built around 1950. The tower had an active role in the water supply until 1997. Its designer is the architect J. Zietsma.
A fire in 2001 destroyed a lot of the interior, at that time a restaurant was located in the upper part. Since then the water tower has been closed and its future remains uncertain; due to a huge maintenance backlog it will cost a lot of money to give it a new destination..

  3. It's quite an attractive attraction. Perhaps some entrepreneur will come in and put it to good use.

  4. It does not look so much water tower (usually they seems fungus).
    To me came to mind yellow the Tower of Pisa. But any way, it looks very nice.
    Maybe someone rich millionaires will buy it and make it home for themselves.

  5. Surely, some kind of private/public partnership can be created.

  6. Compared to water towers here in Canada this one so classy. Too bad it's still not operating.
