It's a big restaurant annex hotel. We ate there after our Euromast-visit. Cheap but not very friendly place, rather a food-factory.

great shots as always and most of the highrises' designs are impressive enough to be iconic.

Agreed, in Rotterdam Dutch architects are building the one iconic building next to the other.

I wish I could see a couple of 200+ meters high towers going up in Rotterdam.

There are lots of areas in the city where those scrapers would not look out of place.
I especially would like to see them in three locations:
- near the Delft Gate Building ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gebouw_Delftse_Poort ),
- close to Maastoren ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maastoren )
- on Wijnhaven Island, next to The Red Apple ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Apple ).

Thanks! I wouldn't spoil the free view on Delftse Poort, it's one of my favourite European skyscrapers. Don't dwarf this giant beauty. I think the area around Maastoren is the best option. But that's just my personal opinion.

Some very nicely composed pictures - especially like the one of the church towers? with cruise liner in background.

Thanks Jane. The towers are part of the former head quarters of the Holland America Line. Now it's the Hotel New York.

Two year ago we visited the famous museum MET in New York admiring "On Deck" painted by the British-American artist Malcolm Morley:
