Though it is massive, the design looks very good. I wonder if there will be a user. Who needs so much office space these days?

Good chance that whatever is going to be build here will be another design, the project changed from develloper recently. Hopefully it will be at least the same height!
Thx Skyscrapercitizen! Don't worry, it's not Toronto, everything they will build at that location will be of good quality.

Well, that has been the problem with both de Rotterdam (rescued by the municipality of Rotterdam) and the Baltimore tower.
I think that with a new developer of Baltimore, it should become a mixed use tower, or even residential only.

It has been nicknamed Manhattan at the Maas
At least the ambitions have not decreased here.

I think the cladding will be great when this project is finished.

I'm so Proud to see this project! Proud on OMA architects, the builders and developpers. This is really "un-Dutch". Finally we dare to build such confronting architecture.

I don't see why a building in Rotterdam, designed by a Dutch architect, developed by a Dutch developer is "un-dutch"

We've created a country out of the sea, protected it by a massive infrastructure of dams and dikes, host the largest port of Europe, are at the heartland of the European economy, et cetera. We can be proud of ourselves, and should not use terms as "un-dutch".

Next to that, we founded New York Manhattan should become a Rotterdam on the Hudson

De Rotterdam is not only office. Two blocks are residential, 3 blocks are office, 1 block is 4 star hotel by NH.
