It would have been nice to save the Zwarte Madonna, a fine example of it's age.
But it started to fit it's environment less and less... Anyway, i find the new situation
to be a improvement too

That is an great example how to build towers which fit very well in the surroundings. On top of that the ministry buildings improve the skyline.

Because they form half of the skyline by itself.

I like the transition of style from the classical-buildings in front to the modern high-rise in the background.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us & Clipped from the above picture from Deltametropolis

Are these new crane structures on the roof permanent? I hope they are foldable, so they won't be in sight always.

I am afraid they're not. They will be used as glass-washing cranes? I think also some obstruction lights will be added on top.

They can be easily seen from streetlevel. Last week i was here, and i noticed the structures on top of the towers. The crane are even higher than the crowns themselves. The towers designed with lots of vertical lines which are all ending in pillars (crown elements). Now these vertical lines are blocked on top with a horizontal barrier of some foreign element. That is realy a shame.

There is also a crane installed on the Kroon building, but you never see it on top of the tower unless they are washing the windows. So it is possible.
