Het zijn mooie torens die er komen, maar ik vind het jammer dat ze ze op een rijtje plaatjes. Straks lijkt het een rechte skyline, niet echt een nette cluster, lijkt me. Maar wel mooie torens!

This tower really looks classy..the design has something of art deco about it, its different from the typical glass/concrete-box residential towers and IMO will be one of the best looking buildings in Rotterdam when finished, and also one of the most beautiful residential skyscrapers in Western Europe.
Rotterdam definetily has done very good in terms of residential highrise buildings , especially when compared to many other european cities (for example, there hasn't been any residential highrise in Germany over 100m built since the 1970's) .. Rotterdam on the other hand, has , like Vancouver, Toronto or most recently Warsaw been in favour of constructing new highrise residentials and i hope that other cities in Europe will follow Rotterdam in this and will start building more highrise residentials.

Agree with that, I don't understand why for example Frankfurt has almost no residential scrapers.

Hi, I'm new to the board. I have worked on towers and buildings around the world for many years now, working on The Montevideo of course and other projects in Holland such as the HSL for example.

My fiancée came across this site looking about The New Orleans Tower as I am a foreman on this project.

I was very interested to see the pictures today as I am in Ireland for the weekend. Once I spoke to a young guy who came onto the site and is very interested in cranes and I wonder is he on this board?

If anybody is interested in more info on this job, technical specs or otherwise I will try to check in as often as I can.

The beast will wake up soon and start rising to the sky like a rocket. Rotterdam makes me happy every day with their skyscrapers under construction.

by british standards (in this forum) this is not only u/c but almost completed (the same standards say that a building is already u/c when demolition of the building previously occupying the site starts) ...
