New Babylon... not such a good name... considering what 'happened' to the old one.

Great project. I think in real live it would look even higher then on the renders. Just a fenomenal project for the Netherlands

Nice tower. Unfortunate name though. Like naming your kid Ahab.

From the far sight it looks so boxy, but when I examine it closely, I like the details.

They're still busy with demolishing some parts of the old building, but it looks like they're ready to start with the actual construction of the two towers.

Site of the lower tower, there's a piledriver on the ground but it's not used yet.




Site of the highest tower, it looks like they've build a steel platform from were they can heavy material(?)




They're also busy with the underground car park right next to this project, which is still a lake at this moment.
