A brave choice to make it red and now it's apparent that it will give Rotterdam so much colour and character.

I like the red colour as well.

This is another red one going up in Barcelona at the moment from Ito (slightly lower).

I love the red color; Rotterdam's skyline is really developing into something special.

Scheepmakerstoren

Hello:

My name is Tineke Scheepmaker and I live in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada
I was born in Utrecht, Holland
I immigrated to Canada with my parents and siblings in 1958
Last year, my sister Hennie and I took a trip of a lifetime back to Holland to visit out aunt and cousins
We rented a place in Hillegersberg
We made the most of our trip and took about 2,000 photographs between my sister and I
We did a lot of walking and where shocked to see signs of "Scheepmakerskade" and "Scheepmakershaven" and then "Scheepmakerstoren" under construction
Could you please tell me how the name "Scheepmakerstoren" was picked.
"Scheepmaker" is not a very common name
I am also very interested in the progress of this building
My sister and I are planning a return trip next year
Any information you could give us would be appreciated
thanks (bedankt)

Hello and welcome,

The answer to your question why the tower is called Scheepmakerstoren is actually very simple, it's because it's build next to the Scheepmakershaven.

And it's called Scheepmakershaven because there was a shipyard of the VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) (Dutch East India Company), the corporation that carried out the Dutch colonial activities in Asia from 1602 until 1800. Scheepmaker is an old Dutch word for a shipbuilder and it was very common to name the harbors after it's function. The shipyard moved to a bigger location and the function of the harbor changed over the years but the name stayed the same.

You can find updates of the progress of this building in the thread in the Dutch part of the forum (with lots of pictures):
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=605161

It's almost finished now, it will be finally be completed later this year after a long construction with many delays.

I hope this info answers your questions and that you will enjoy your return trip to Holland next year.
