Bellakvarter's new landmark

Bella Tower was designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen Arkitekter in collaboration with COBE, and is a striking feature at the entrance to Bellakvarter. The 60 meter high residential tower is designed in a white grid of raw concrete elements, which are placed on a dark brick base, which forms the framework around a green, nature-rich farm environment. The residences in the base go up to the 5th floor and have balconies and secluded terraces facing the courtyard, while the tower rises 19 stories and has balconies all around. The property consists of a total of 199 apartments with 2-6 rooms.


View over the whole of Ørestad and Amager Fælled

The tower is designed with 360 degree balconies in different depths, which vary from French balconies to living balconies. It provides the opportunity for a rich outdoor life, where you can go outside from all rooms and enjoy the uninterrupted view over Ørestad and over Amager Fælled to Copenhagen's Skyline.

Beautiful apartments of high quality

The homes have a stylish and Nordic look and are built in beautiful materials such as beautiful oak floors and large windows. The large window sections provide a lovely light and an indescribably beautiful view from the tower apartments. The kitchen is a quality kitchen from Invita and in a timeless design with integrated white goods such as built-in oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. All bathrooms are built in light materials and shower niches with extra large shower heads that invite long baths and give an impression of quality and well-being. All homes have their own washing machine and tumble dryer.


Rare tower homes with views to two corners of the world

The entrance to the new residential tower will be on the corner of Vejlands Allé and Ørestads Boulevard, where a hall will be established with wood on the walls and ceilings, which will provide a warm welcome. From here you can go further into the elevator core, which is located in the middle of the building and leads up to the apartments. All the tower homes are established as corner apartments with views to two corners of the world and have a nice amount of light during the day. At the top is also a unique penthouse apartment on two levels, private roof terrace and bathtub where you can enjoy the view of Amager Fælled.


A sustainable urban area

Bellakvarter is sustainability-certified within the DGNB and, as the first urban area in Denmark, has received a Gold mid-term certification. DGNB is based on a holistic understanding of sustainability that takes environmental, economic, technical, procedural and social factors into account. Bellakvarter is a diverse neighborhood where sustainability comes into play in, among other things, rainwater management, waste management and green areas.
