FLOORS: 44
COMPLETED: 2008

ARCHITECT: Diederik Dam (Dam en Partners Architecten)

Nice to have an international update threat for this building. I hope construction really has started. One comment on the building diagram posted above: the Maastower is not tall enough on that diagram.

@ Dubai: "that should be terrific!"

I think you mean: That would be terrible...

Nice update Tim...

It'll be the tallest when completed for the time beeing, but even from this angle it'll still be invisible

44, one of my favorite numbers. Nice building, I hope protesters aren't too feisty.
