The Montevideo tower is one of the high-rise buildings on the Wilhelminapier that determine the skyline of Rotterdam. The starting point of the design was the ‘Holland-America feeling’ of the pier. The building is a composition of interlocking volumes, a section of which cantilevers over the quayside. The restaurants and offices in the lower part enhance the vibrant urban atmosphere, while the tower section references 1930s skyscrapers in New York, Boston and Chicago. The structure features an American-style steel structure on the lower two floors, a ninety-metre-tall typically Dutch concrete structure in the middle section, and a steel-structure top. The name Montevideo recalls the tradition of warehouses that once stood here with exotic names such as New Orleans, Santos, Baltimore and Havana. The letter ‘M’ atop the building is an eight-metre-high weather vane. It stands for Rotterdam’s maritime tradition, the River Maas and, of course, the building’s name.
