This is not U/C yet, the phase is 'demolition'. First pile will be in September 2008 (!!).

This looks like a good project. I was just preparing to say that it looks very "American", and then I even saw the Atlas statue, a copy of the one at Rockefeller Center:

This is not UC, It's start in 2008, and will be finished in 2011/2012.
The Skyline of The Hague will be very very nice, with this towers.

I don't like the design of these towers, they look like towers from the 40's or something... :P

Does Kollhoff use the same designs everywhere? These towers look almost identical to his Kollhoff Tower at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.

And sorry I don't like both his Berlin and the Hague towers. That being said, these towers will add to the density of the skyline and The Hague will indeed have one of the best skylines in Europe in 2010.

Love the Kollhoff towers! Classic buildings. Great project for the Hague. The apartment tower is a bit boring but not bad.

The brick building looks really like Kollhoffs tower in Berlin. But i like them both:

Kollhoff may not be the most modern achitect, but his buildings have grandure
and the shear size of this project is huge. (For Dutch standards at least )

Not my style of building. Looks like something that could have been built in New York over 60-70 years ago.

Perhaps I exaggerated a little, but if you picture them right next to what's already there, I think it'll look pretty damn good:

No doubt it will look good. Good is even an understatement, it will be IMPRESSIVE! But you cannot compare a city's 'main cluster' or CBD to the Kop van Zuid. Totally different situations.

Nice classic design, It proves that you don't have to design something postmodern and above to get good reviews nowadays.

I can't wait to see those three towers on this picture

The Hague is building at the most beautiful high rise cluster of the Netherlands in the near future.

Whit the big stretched out skyline of Rotterdam it will be a nice site seeing when i am driving on Motorway A12 from Utrecht to The Hague.
