Nice building!!

Rabobank needed to change its name for its Brazilian operations, in Portuguese Rabobank stands for something like "assbank"

Indeed, and since it's in Dutch, I don't think a lot of people here will understand what it says.

Let me give a quick summary: they're currently preparing the building site by drilling sheet pile walls into the ground. If all goes well, they'll finish this in August so they can start digging out thr ground for the undergound parking garage and the foundations of the tower.

High-Res artist impressions of this project. Good stuff if you're planning on redecorating your bedroom and you're still looking for something to put on those boring white walls. Of course, if you hate the building, you can always use it as toilet paper, but do keep in mind that the gods of skyscrapers will then no longer look favourably upon you.

Thanks for posting!

I think the entrance is a bit modest compared to the rest of the building.
I would have like to see the round shape of the towers also in the entrance.
