Been looking at it for a while now and finally made up my mind. I don't like it.

The pier starts to look like a once pretty highrise ensemble that had a blockhead haircut, the Rotterdam exaggerates this effect.

@seb.nl: For me it depends on the angle from which I view this building. I appreciate this building the most when viewed from the northwest (Westerkade) with the reflection of the sun and the Erasmus Bridge on it's facade. But I don't like this building when viewed from the south. It looks very clumsy from that angle. I think it's an impressive structure that adds to the impressive skyline at the river side around the Wilhelminapier. Some diversity like this massive block adds something to the ensemble of mostly thin towers, even though one of this kind of structure is enough.

The view from the south will be blocked partially by new towers in the coming years. I think that will look entirely different.

Very unique International Style building. Although, it's a bit too wide for me.

That is a nice line up of towers. Now it's time to fill the gaps.
