By driving the first pile into the ground, alderman Ronald Schneider (Urban Development) gave a festive start to the construction of The Muse at Wijnhaven in Rotterdam. The 75m-high tower designed by Barcode Architects will add a distinctive silhouette to the Rotterdam skyline with its subtly bent shape, outlined by a prominent concrete “wrap”. The project is an important link within the transformation of the Maritime District into an attractive new residential and living environment. Expected completion is in the first quarter of 2019.
