They said there were a lot of international journalists present today. Hopefully we will start seeing reports about De Rotterdam in foreign media soon.

Some nice footage from the views from the inside:

A nice article in the most important spanish newspaper: (google translator spanish > english)
Quote:
Everything is big in De Rotterdam , the new building designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, and his firm , OMA , in the port city. Raised on the banks of the Meuse on the equivalent of a football field area , has three towers of steel and glass, is 150 meters high , weighs 230,000 tons and 160,000 square meters of offices, apartments, restaurants and a hotel in the Spanish chain NH. It is a true "vertical city " , original name of the project , which began to take shape in the nineties and has overcome the crisis to be symbolically handed over to the council on Thursday , which will install about 2,000 employees here .

The enormity of the whole is clear and shows again the vital paradox Koolhaas, responsible for other giants, as the headquarters of China Central Television , but also critical of his job "to be in the hands of capital." A modest and elusive man personally, he has tried to reflect " the ambition of a community that takes in its DNA the need to build , since it was swept by bombs during World War II ."
It's much longer and you can read it here:

It is 'heavy' and 'impactful'.
Not sure I like it.

This building feels very bleak from the inside.

That is probably also due to the fact that the inside is still far from finished, there is still a lot of bare concrete and large spaces are just empty still.

The hotel rooms, apartments and the lobby feel the same.

Unfortunately this one was only temporary, but I'm sure more will follow. I hope they do something similar on new years eve.
Would be spectacular in combination with the fireworks.
