Most new towers in that district are named/will be named after port cities. The sandy colored one is New Orleans, the red and white tower is Montevideo, the big bulky one that's U/C now is called Rotterdam, and in the future towers by the names of Havana and Baltimore are still expected.

I guess those are/used to be ports that were connected to Rotterdam by sea routes.

Not only because these used to be connected Ports. The former warehouses that stood there, had these names.

A very nice waterfront skyline, perfect example of urban regeneration after WWII.
I'm not really fancying the style of these highrises, tho, apart from the 'New Orleans' tower which is gorgeous (and the same goes for the stunning bridge). And i think they need a landmark tower. So i would rate this skyline 7.5/10.

Agree with that. BTW, the picture above shows Rotterdam in its most stretched way. From other angles it will look more dense.
