The telecom & data tower in Lelystad is located on the west side of the city and has a beautiful view over the Oostvaardersplassen. This tower, built in 1975, is 190 meters high. To provide the harbour area of the city with a boost, the tower was illuminated in March 2014, making it a real beacon in the landscape.
The tower is not accessible to the public, but in 2013, the tower was opened as part of Heppie View Lelystad. Thanks to the photo coverage by one of the visitors, other people can now enjoy the magnificent view over the harbour and the Oostvaardersplassen.
In 2007 Cellnex bought the tower -and 23 other towers – from KPN. In March 2018 Cellnex realised a datacenter in this tower and since then several companies from Lelystad have stored their data in their own region.
