situated in the area surrounding the old hotel New York on the harbor were the America cruise ships docked, this building is used for offices and social and restaurant with underground garage. Its well worth a visit just to see the Rotterdams sky line.

This build look immensely impressive. It leans as much as the Tower of Pisa and on the leaning side, has a LED installed on the windows and turn it into a giant billboard. It is also refereed to as "KPN Telecom Building"
