Now the question: 140 or 149 meters?

I don't know about any design changes that would go for 140 meter, so my guess is that 149 is still right.

149 meters and in today's newspaper there is a short artical. Despite the credit crunch/recession the build of this tower is definite. They will start at the end of 2009 and it will take up to four years until completion.

So this thread can be moved from proposed to U/C

De Rotterdam makes Toren op Zuid look like a little pebble because of its massive width but fairly small height next to it.
still not sure if it would look right with the rest of the tall and thin scrapers going up in that area

but i do like it, very unique

That is wonderful news. I was always confident because most of the space in the tower was already leased, but it still had to happen.

I translated a article from NRC into English :

Rotterdam is going to build old design by Koolhaas

Rotterdam, 11 juli.

Credit crunch or not, Rotterdam keeps buildings on it's future. Although that's with a 10-year-old design by architect Rem Koolhaas.

With proud the municipality of Rotterdam and the two developers (OVG and MAB) presented the plans yestarday for the biggest multifunctional building in the Netherlands: De Rotterdam. The building, praised as a vertical city where is being lived 24 hours per day, will arise the next 4 years at the banks of the New Maas. On the Wilhelminapier the first pilling will start at the end of this year. The project will cost 340 million euros.

With 149 meters it will be one of the biggest buildings in the city. It has 3 towers and will have offices, a 4-star hotel, apartments, restaurants and shops.

Koolhaas unveiled the design in 2001, but nothing happened with it anymore. Contracters and developers didn't dare to invest in the project. But ironically the financial crisis makes the construction possible. Alderman Hamit Karakus kept 200 million aside to keep the constructionprogress going, and with that employment.

According to Koolhaas, born in Rotterdam, it are alot of smaller buildings combined in 1 big building. Koolhaas said that he was relieved. He was fearing that it wouldn't get further as the sketching of the design. After ten years it will finally be build, in the best city I know.

Probably some mistakes I made but should be sort of readable.

Here you can see better that it are more smaller buildings combined into one. Very practical design, because almost every room has alot of windows.

Eindelijk een render die niet vol glitter en glamour is:
