btw. did de rotterdam grow? wasn't it supposed to be 135m or something? is deloitte a tenant?
De Rotterdam's final height is not clear. Last number is 139, but this can simply become 150 meters, there have been some rumours about that.

The renders posted of De Rotterdam are a bit old, Deloitte was a possible tenant, but they will built their own tower 150 meters from the De Rotterdam site. But as said before another client has serious interest in this project now...

I hope it's clear now.

A short list of construction in Rotterdam in 2006:

Deloitte (Maastower), 165 meters. Since Deloitte is in a hurry, it's almost sure construction will start before summer 2006.

Render:


site now:


New Orleans, 156 meters, renders coming really soon... construction almost sure to start somewhere after summer 2006...

De Rotterdam, design by Rem Koolhaas. Rumours about a tenant, and if that is treu construction is likely to begin before 2007!

Possibly the most urban building in Europe if build...

renders








The Red Apple, by KCAP, 128 meters tall, and construction started.

render:


construction:



Cite, 89 meters, construction just started, first pile in march 2006.

Render:


UWV Tower, 70 meters.

render:


construction:


De Calypso, 70 meters, 500 apartments, by William Alsop, to start this spring.

renders:





location:


And maybe there is more...

Traffic situation is fine, after the total destroy of the city center in 1940, Rotterdam built wide avenues which can handle the traffic very well till today and in the future.

Efficient public transport is also a solution to build mass density. Like in HK car ownership is only 22% of the households. Car use is even less because public transport is so efficient in this mass density linear metropolis.

@ Snor

That is next to the train station as you can see. But this is not the design, but just something to show that there will be build something in the future.

Well not really. Traffic in the citycenter is very bad. It takes you half an hour to drive from north to south, even in the middle of the day.


But anyway, nice constructions

This De Rotterdam building will be the most ugly and hated building in the world....compared to that the elephant building in bangkok is a jewel.

The rest of the projects are seriously better then what has been built in Rotterdam already.
