De Rotterdam is a building on the Wilhelminapier in Rotterdam, designed by Rem Koolhaas in 1998. The complex is located between the KPN Tower and Rotterdam Cruise Terminal and was finalized at the end of 2013. On 21 November 2013, the municipality of Rotterdam, as the largest user, received the keys. The design provides space for offices, a hotel and apartments. The 44 floors amount to a total floor space area of about 160,000 m², making it the largest building in the Netherlands.
Construction began in 2009, when the municipality committed itself to hire 25,000 m² of the office space. The highest point was reached at the end of 2012, and the building was ready on its scheduled date of November 15, 2013. The total cost at the start of construction in 2009 was estimated to be €340,000,000.
