New icon in the centre of Rotterdam

, Comments 0 comments

On 21 November 2013 the largest multifunctional building in the Netherlands ‘De Rotterdam’, Vertical City by OMA/Rem Koolhaas has been completed.

‘De Rotterdam', with its 60,000 m2 of office space, hospitality and catering covering around 1,500 m2, a four-star lifestyle ‘nhow' hotel with conference and event facilities and 280 rooms, a car park with space for 670 vehicles, 240 apartments and leisure facilities will be a vertical city on the Wilhelmina Pier.

The building at the foot of the Erasmus Bridge is already an unmissable feature of Rotterdam's skyline.

De Rotterdam, 150 meters tall and in total 160,000 m2 of floor space on an area the size of just one football field, is a building that calls for superlatives. When, probably in the autumn of 2014 the entire building is occupied, around 85% has already been rented out or sold, the total number of people on the Wilhelmina Pier will be doubled. On average around 5,000 people will be in the building on a daily basis.

In the Mid and East Towers, the Office Area provides ample space for companies that require the dynamics of the city and a view of the world. From every floor, the views of the city and port are phenomenal. Many renowned (international) brands and companies in the maritime, telecom, energy and cultural sectors have their offices at the Wilhelmina Pier or its immediate vicinity ─ a business climate that is second to none.

Transparent beauty

The signature of OMA/Rem Koolhaas can be found in every detail, for instance in the 8.5 meter high, light central hall that spans the entire width of the building with travertine wallcoverings and natural stone flooring, an impressive atrium, brass wallcoverings in the lift area and the reception. De Rotterdam consists of a 6-storey base approximately 30 meters high. On top of that there are 3 transparent towers with around 7 meters of space between each of them. The glass facade of the building means that there are floor to ceiling windows on all floors, which opens up the building to its environment.
