What's next for Wilhelminapier? Baltimore or Havana?

Probably Baltimore (which has been redesigned btw) but the current economic situation has caused the real estate market to collabse. It will probably take years to see an other one rising sadly.

The next project for the Wilhelminapier will be the construction of two lowrise (70m) towers, Boston and San Francisco. They will be build on a parking lot, in between the New Orleans building and the Havana plot.

They started installing the last missing panels on the residential tower (right). This building will be completed soon.

Oh I so wish they put one on top of each other. The quality is very fine and I really like the cladding. But its way too massive for my taste. Like even the two towers would be too wide, but the third...

I really don't understand why this monster building gets so many likes. With all due respect to the great and promising skyline of Rotterdam!

The vision behind the Wilhelminapier development (where this building is part of) is to create a small version of Manhattan here.
This implies a decent skyline (obviously). The more dense, the better. This cannot be created with slender towers alone.

You gain density, but then you lose on diversity. And I would never trade one for another. It might look impressive from the distance, but when you get closer, the magic disapears. The good quality of the materials used (and the cladding I mean) is put into shadows by the the size of this tower and therefore it has a NO from me.

BTW, can we even call this building a tower since it's almost as wide as tall?

I agree with that but I think one large building doesn't need to be a problem. There is enough room for more towers.
One could also regard this as 3 towers:
