It is rare that you can convert office buildings to residence. Usually, their internal division, their water/sewage/heating pipe system and load distribution make them unfit for such conversions. But that was apparently an exception.

The Caland Estate is a good make over. Are there any examples of facades being kept but a building being demolished/rebuilt to a taller building?

If I recall correctly that Rotterdam railway station / the square in front of it was being redeveloped in 2011. Is this project finished? What does it look like today?

there are several forumers living on those buildings, there are some posts of them on the Rotterdam development page.

Nice. When I arrived in the Netherlands to live here the old station was intact (I think?) but they had built that hideous zinc blue temporary building.

Good job Rotterdam on the new railway station it looks really good!

When I visited I did a walking archtecture tour of the city; I guess they can now add the station to the tour guide.

Or just walk around without a guide. Pretty much everything is accessible.

These links give more information about the station:
