Rotterdam, the second most populous city in the Netherlands, is home to 352 completed high-rises,[1] 36 of which are higher than 100 metres (330 ft). The tallest building in Rotterdam is the Maastoren, which rises 165 metres (541 ft).[2] The 44 storey skyscraper also stands as the highest building in the Netherlands and the Benelux.[2]

Rotterdam is well known as the high-rise city of the Netherlands. The city is therefore often called "Manhattan at the Meuse",[3] because a large amount of skyscrapers is standing close to the river Meuse, especially at Kop van Zuid. Rotterdam has a rich history in high-rises, dating back to 1897 with the completion of "Het Witte Huis". This office building was at that time the tallest skyscraper in Europe.[4] Rotterdam is famous because of its characteristic skyline, and its world-wide reputation for innovative architecture. The city is standing in the European SkylineTop together with Frankfurt, Milan, London, Madrid, Paris, Warsaw and Moscow. Over 30 new high-rise projects are being developed at the moment.[1]
