Not really possible, with the metro-line and the Beurstraverse underground passage underneath the road. Though I would really like to see that there. Would give a lot of atmosphere to this place.

The quality of the design is magnificent, but somehow the building does not look good next to the Hilton and the former Slavenburg building...

Interesting. So, the name of this part of city is... cool. What means "cool" in Dutch?

According to the Van Dale dictionary, it means 'apparently untouched'. I didn't know, apart from the english meaning, it has no other meaning in dutch.

I prefer the new design to the old one, even though the height is 30 meters less.

I thinks the design is OK, but a 20m height increase would do wonders. Not only for the skyline, but also for the design. Right now it looks a bit short and too wide.

Is there a cannel on the old place? Would be nice if they bring it back. But Rotterdam's Coolsingel looks like a very nice way. Reminds me of other big cities!

Well, the name "Cool" was mentioned in a official document as long ago as the year 1280 so I don't think it has anything to do with cabbage.
