Plans to build the biggest building in the Netherlands – a 160,000 square metre complex on the banks of the Maas river – were unveiled in Rotterdam on Friday.
Designed by Rem Koolhaas, the building is known as De Rotterdam and consists of three 150 metre towers, with a hotel, shops, offices and restaurants as well as residential property.
The design is actually 10 years old, but the property developer told Nos tv the plan could now go ahead because the recession has forced down prices.
The total cost of the project is put at €340m and is being backed by Rabobank, Nos said. The building will take four years to complete.
