(Almost) Nothing about the Rotterdam port in this thread. It's important, because the biggest harbour of Europe and the 3rd biggest in the world is expanding.

Maasvlakte II


Total port (without Maasvlakte II)


Some facts
- Between 1962 and 2004 Rotterdam was the biggest port in the world
- 420 million tons in 2008
- Between 1962 and 1986 Rotterdam was the bussiest port in the world
- The Rotterdam port stretches over a distance of 40 kilometers
- The Rotterdam port covers 105 square kilometers (without Maasvlakte II)
- A draft of 24 meters making it together with the Terminal Marítimo de Ponta da Madeira in Brazil, one of only two available mooring locations for the largest bulk cargo ship in the world, the iron ore bulk carrier Berge Stahl. Wich has a draft of 23 meters. I can only enter a small part of the port.

Thanks for all the updates xlchrisij (and thanks to all who made the photographs). Now I don't have to look at all the different update threads in the dutch section.

^They where also posted at the other page. Thanks for posting bigger pictures.
Altough, this just seems a self promotion design. Nothing serious.

More pics of City Tower, Rotterdam.













Local architect pledges to stop the ‘joke’ of high-rise Rotterdam
World War II saw the destruction of many cities around Europe and not least hit was the city of Rotterdam. While devastating on a human and financial scale this allowed the city to evolve into what is now considered as the ‘high rise city of the Netherlands’. But local architect Jan Willem van Kuilenburg, principal of Monolab Architects has derided this label as ‘a joke’ calling for an extension to the local authorities’ planned high rise zone to the south and proposes Rotterdam's first super-tower, the 450 m high City Tower.

“Rotterdam is too hesitant, too defensive and too much like an underdog. After the Erasmus bridge we are in need of a real skyscraper of European scale of which Rotterdam can be proud,” says Kuilenburg, “All currently realised towers in Rotterdam are of mediocre quality and very primitive. As we should save in prosperous periods, it makes the current economic crisis the right time to invest.”

Kuilenburg proposes City Tower as the leader in this campaign. The 450 m mixed-use tower with a photovoltaic skin would be built in the water by the Maas Harbour. According to Kuilenburg it would allow the high-rise zone to serve the whole city and help to connect Europe’s largest port to the rest of the city. The tower would be connected to land via a steel pedestrian boulevard to a separate parking lot with the capacity for 1000 cars. Kuilenburg believes this element of the project could aid the local authorities’ plans to liberate the downtown area of traffic by creating a 6th park and ride zone with its close proximity to the Metro.

Asked about the likely response from the people of Rotterdam to what would be a very bold visual landmark, Kuilenburg said: “I don’t know. In general Rotterdam people are proud of the skyline, they are energetic and ready to go for new proposals. It has always been a scene for experiment. Rotterdam was bombed in the Second World War and so new buildings emerged, since then people are used to change.” Kuilenburg is currently in talks with developers and calling for international investment for the project.



Maybe not just a vision?

It is just a vision. Seriously. Don't think they are going to build that in Rotterdam. It's a height difference of 300 meters between the current tallest. Just insane.

Thanks for quoting all the updates xlchrisij, real useful

I dont now... in the future the height gap will not 300m but +/-230m. We will see i think that type of tower is for 2013 i mean the 450m vision.

Well, let's go back to real life. Because the chance that that 450m tower will be built is very small.

It looks like the city asked for 3 construction licenses.
The 3 (new) projects are, 100 High (100m), High at the Maas (78m) and Vopak (70m).
The last one, Vopak, used to be an office tower. The plan was to enlarge it.
Somehow the construction stopped and finally, after a few years (?) construction starts again.

100 High

B' tower
This is a simple version of the actual tower. Better renders are on their way.

Wilhelminapier
Only the white tower in the front is u/c (New Orleans).
Some towers are already constructed like the first 2 on the left.
