Turnkey living at The West Blake

New construction in Rotterdam

The West Blake is the newest apartment building in the centre of Rotterdam.

Based on a design by V8 Architects, a former bank building on the corner of Westblaak and Hartmanstraat – next to Cinerama – will be converted into turnkey luxury apartments of between approximately 40 m2 and 75 m2.

Most of the complex will soon be a new construction, with the addition of three new floors and a section to the rear. The sixties façade and authentic marble staircase will be restored.

The studios and apartments in The West Blake will be highly energy-efficient (A+++) and completely turnkey. On completion, they will be equipped with a luxury kitchen, a complete high-end bathroom, floor and wall finishes.

The Building

Art and architecture

Kraaijvanger designed the building for the ‘Eerste Hollandsche Levensverzekerings-Bank’. This complex was completed in 1961, next to the Cinerama, in booming Rotterdam.
A striking feature is the beautiful artwork ‘The Family’ by Louis van Roode. The Westblaak 24-32 building is a paragon of bright, Rotterdam Reconstruction Architecture.

Now new history is being added by V8 Architects by having the building raised by three-storeys and extended with a new section at the rear. The original marble lobby, staircase and sixties façade will be restored.

The West Blake will soon consist of three sections with their own look: downtown, midtown and uptown.


‘Only the m2 you use’ – smart floor plans and very high-quality finishes create compact luxury apartments and studios. Sometimes with an open space another time with one or two bedrooms.

All homes will be fitted with a luxury kitchen with built-in appliances, a high-end bathroom as well as floor and wall finishes. All matching the three different atmospheres of the building: uptown, midtown and downtown. More on this in early 2024

The A+++ energy label ensures energy-efficient homes and extra borrowing capacity.

The West Blake will have smart services and communal facilities such as a BringMe Box, beautiful lobby and a communal roof terrace.

Living in the heart of Rotterdam

Living in The West Blake is living in the heart of the city. The bustle of Witte de With, going to the cinema next door, being at the museum in 5 minutes and a short walk to the theatre.
