Great design. But where in Amsterdam will it be located? I suppose in the Zuid district near the Bijlmer station and the Amsterdam Arena? Because as far as I know the WTC area has a height restriction of 105 m due to the proximity of the Schiphol airport.

If I understand it correctly it will be in the northwestern part of the city, near Sloterdijk.

^The 3 crosses are symbolic for Amsterdam. These crosses can be found everywhere in the city, especially on the poles allong the streets. They are called 'Amsterdammertjes'.

Vastberaden means determined, right?

Anyway, I really like this tower and I really hope this one will be built.

Fitting that of all the cities in the world it would be Amsterdam to have XXX as an symbol.

Very nice tower but what are the actual chances of it being built? A start date of 2012 is very far away...

Nothing. All those Dutch people make useless treads in the Internation Part.
This is only a Vision, There is no news.

This is not a 'VISION', it is a serious study and there are already negotiations with big firms for the office space. The reason it will start no sooner than 2012 is that a lot of the infrastructure has to be changed.

Wow, this is new for me! Im really impressed by the ambition of Amsterdam. Looks like this nice designed tower will be build in a cluster. Very good for Amsterdam.
