Newest renderings of the Wilhelminapier/Kop van Zuid plans. The next tower here will start constrution in early 2007, and the pier must be full in 2013. Latest news is that Sir Norman Foster is likely to design the 150m tall Baltimore office tower, we'll see.

Rem Koolhaas designed the De Rotterdam building on the Wilhelminapier. You can see a part in post #302.

I saw the last planning, and they want to start construction on this in september 2007. That's the time procedures take in the netherlands in 21st century, even when the tower has occupancy...

That's because this part of Rotterdam was a harbor a long time ago. The buildings have the same name as the old package houses which stood there.

And btw, we have lots of Dutch names for skyscrapers: Delftse Poort, Coopvaert, Wijnhaeve, Scheepmakerstoren, Lange Juffer, etc.
