This 1960s modernist water tower in Assen, Holland is an ideal Grand Designs project. The Assen water tower was designed in 1960 by architect W ter Braake, replacing an older water tower nearby. It stands around 34m high and consists of a hexagonal shaft and a cylindrical reservoir with a flat roof extending out above. The good news for potential buyers is that the tower and its water reservoir (which has a capacity of 550,000 litres) was renovated back in 2007.
This is being offered to the right person for a symbolic value of just €1, who has the most feasible and realistic plan for responsible re-use within three years.. If you want it, the subsurface and adjacent plots of the water tower must be purchased as well, which seem to be owned by the local authority. The extra outlay will mean you will need to find a further €14,280 before you begin your Grand Design — via WowHaus
