Dark blue is UC or will start construction before half 2007, except the ones on the left which have to be designed:



construction on this 70m urban block will start later this year:

We only need one ambitious invester in a good economic time. Rdam can easily absorb a 200+ tower now, enough mass.

Biggest problem are the long procedures in the netherlands. This makes up a too big percentage of the total costs.

A nother problem is the foundation of the builduing. To build a building some 200 meters you will need to go at least 60 meters into the ground. Think about the costs and the machinery to do that.

Great news for all Rotterdam lovers here, I'll move to Rotterdam city in a few weeks, finally. The I can make many more updates myself by bike.

Today, I made this one of the already slender scheepmakerstoren, to become about 90meters, but amazig design!

Rotterdam is booming, and 2007 (also Year of Architecture here in Rotterdam) will be amazing. This will be under construction next year:

Salmpoort 172m (residential)
Maastoren I 165m (office)
New Orleans 158m (residential)
De Lange Juffer 145m (residential)
De Rotterdam 136m (residential/office)
The Red Apple 128m (residential/office) *
De Knick Van Zuid 120m (residential)
Erasmus MC Expansion Dijkzicht 120m (hospital/office)
Maastoren II 108m (office)
Oosterbaken 99m (residential) *
Scheepmakerstoren 89m (short stay) *
Cité I 85m (residential) *
UWV 77m (office) *
Statendam 73m (residential) *
Cité II 72m (residential) *
Wijnhaeve 71m (residential) *
Calypso 70m (residential block)

* = already U/C

Not bad for a European city with only 600,000 inhabitants I'd say!

Where did you got your sources for "de lange juffer"?

And the rest of the list is indeed impressive. But I wouldn't be suprised if some of the projects turn into delay. On the other hand there will probably be anounced some more spectecular projects for the coming years

On the official website it says 'in development 2006', and I've heard from unofficial sources that the construction starts mid 2007 to late 2007.
For foreign readers:


It's the thin tall black building next to the white blocks (which are finished or U/C):



Mass study:

Than they already should come with some better impressions, because what I've seen wasn't that impressive.

Well, I have a lot of faith in HD Projectrealisatie - they've done some amazing things so far! And the fact that this tower has gone from 90m to 145m (originally even to 165, but that wasn't possible on this location) proves that they have faith in this tower as well. I hope we'll get some better impressions later this year.
