The future for Rotterdam is not that bleek, and the city is growing for quite some years now. But there is no growth to the status and size of Amsterdam in the cards either. The city is still reinventing itself after the heavy damaged it sustained during WW-II. That is a process of standing up, sometimes falling back (a little), and then continue to move on. They will get "there", whatever "there" means. Because that is as always and for every city a moving target.

But I have seen some very nice pictures of my home town in this thread. Thanks for posting.

Population growth doesn't help to alleviate the lack of jobs. In fact, it worsens the problem.

No one mentioned Amsterdam.

They are mostly trying to reinvent themselves after automation of the ports, which got rid of most (port) jobs. The post-war architecture, and the replacement of such buildings, is merely a visual re-imagining of the city. The actual reinventing that needs to be done is internal: "what the heck are we going to do here now, now that this quintessential port city has virtually no port jobs!".
