Awesome pics , the images look very clear and like the city's night atmosphere ......

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

There are some really great photos here. Dutch architecture old and new has always fascinated me. Have spent a day wondering around Rotterdam marvelling at the buildings. Thanks for the reminder!

That's the Montevideo Tower at the left!


It was named after the capital city of Uruguay and I read there are pics of Montevideo in the lobby.

Wilhelmina Pier
The expansion of its activities has meant that Rotterdam’s harbour has shifted closer to the sea, thus freeing up the old city harbours for other uses. The Wilhelmina Pier lies in such an old city harbour, between the River Maas and the Rhine Harbour, and is being developed into a spectacular residential and office area with a lot of high-rise buildings. The ocean steamers and cruise ships of the Holland-Amerika Line once moored on the Wilhelmina Pier to make the crossing from Rotterdam to New York. The Holland-Amerika Line offices were in what is now Hotel New York. On the Wilhelmina Pier were warehouses with exotic names of international port cities, such as New York, New Orleans, Chicago, San Francisco, Baltimore and Havana. For the highest residential building of the Netherlands, at the head of the Wilhelmina Pier, a name has been chosen that fits into this tradition: Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay.

(...)

Ocean steamer
The building reminds you of the cross-section of an ocean steamer with different floor heights, different price classes and communal facilities. There are apartments in many sizes and price classes, restaurants, offices, guest suites and a swimming pool with fitness centre and sauna. The residents can use service facilities, such as a shopping service, catering, cleaning and maintenance services, a post-keeping service and a laundry service. The entrance to Montevideo has something of the ambiance of a hotel lobby, where you arrive as a traveller. A map of the Uruguay coastline has been painted in silver on the Mecanoo-blue wall, with evocative names such as Punta del Este, Treinta-y-Tres and Dolores. Lying in your bed you can see through a large porthole the passing ships on the Maas River.
