ROTTERDAM | UP:town | 107m | 33 fl | Canceled

Before this project was said to become 145 meters tall, now 120 meters, but the design is great so I don't really care!

It will be 50 meters to the left of the building crane, just beside the other towers at the oppsite of the same street:

Here some more, this one taken by me, this tower will rise just right of the blue tower, some 50 meters further to the back:



It will replace the building in the bottom right of this picture:


And the building in the bottom of this pictures:




So it will become an extremely dense area with luxury apartments.

Well, 100 meters further we have another project. Here new pictures. Height is about 100 meters:






Both projects can start within one year.

I love Rotterdams aspirations but some of the designs are awful. It seems they have a pretty lienient planning policy.

Has nothing to do with planning policy - budgets here are really crappy! So for the budget, they actually do a great job. Also, residential towers are always a little more down to earth - that's not just Rotterdam. You can only go really artistic when the apartments are extremely pricy and there's no market for that here.
