Amazing tower with high quality cladding (chinese granite if I'm correct)!

A nice tower for Rotterdam, but in my opinion, a to basis design. The crown is beautiful, but the rest of the tower looks a bit boring.

But anyway, a nice addiction to the skyline of Rotterdam!

Very elegant and sexy.
I don't know why, but it reminds me a little about that art deco General Electric tower from NYC.

I look forward to following the progress of this one.

As for Rotterdam being old fashioned, I also think it has some wonderful modern architecture too.

Rotterdam old fashioned? This is the least appropriate word you could use to describe the city, or you just meant design of this tower?

I don't think old fashioned is the word for this tower OR for Rotterdam. Rotterdam has a unique residential tower design, where all over the world the same boring towers are built in glass and steel - all of which are greatly appreciated here.

I agree, Rotterdam has at least a unique language of highrises, a unique mix.

And for about quality, Rotterdam will become the 'Vancouver of Europe' as it comes to quality living in a dense downtown area with a breathtaking natural setting. The river is great, and still small enough to keep contact with the other side. The number and the quality of shops, restaurtants and other amenities is rising fast, as well as the number of residential towers.

the building isn't very special, but it does have character in my opinion. and who knows, maybe it will have nice details and material in the end to set it apart from other buidlings. anyway, it's another tower for rotterdam!

If you give such critics it should be nice to explain. Why is this boring and, more interesting, why is it another boring tower? Rotterdam towers seems to be far from boring to me...
