I really am fond of this bridge, a pure beauty...Regarding that triple tower scheme, I'm sorry guys but I don't like it at all, way too bulky, it looks like a huge wall, imo it disfigures the vicinity.

I can’t give my opinion yet. This building isn’t even finished. But from what I now see I think it’s going to be great. I’m still positive.

It will look bulky from most perspectives. Only if you stand right in front of the building you will see the "6 blocks".

I'm not saying bulky is bad btw, this building is gonna be awesome when finished.

It's bulky compared to the surrounding towers, but not too bulky in general. I think when it will be finished a lot of people will turn around and agree with this.

looks like some kind of "old school cladding family"... in spite of that the project itself is not very attractive, it would be quite fine addition to the skyline. I just hope, that it would be soon hidden by other higher and nicer skyscrapers...

... but still ... I used to say, that every skyscraper = good skyscraper :-) higher = better

I think we need more (bulky) towers here because the density is not big enough to create a dense skyline here.
At the moment, the gaps between the towers are too big.

The cladding in detail doesn´t look good Phill is right, it looks kinda old school. I think Rotterdam deserves better.
But the tower´s itself are good to fill the gap that´s true.

Yes, maybe just a light composition makes the cladding look bad on the pic above.
I hope so.

I find the cladding not as bad as some assume here, and the tower itself is nice. Just wait when it will be completed and everyone here will change their opinions.

I hope so.
In addition to that, there is also the reflection of another (rather dull white) tower in the glass.

Rotterdam needs a building like this. Without a massive tower like De Rotterdam the skyline is not that exciting to look at. Maybe it can compete with the Warsaw skyline after De Rotterdam is finished.

I agree, Rotterdam has lots of narrow buildings and becourse of that they look higher than they actually are !
More massive towers are welcome here
