World Port Centre is a 33-storey, 123.1m skyscraper in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The tower was commissioned by ING Real Estate Development. The building costs amounted to approximately NLG100 million. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is the main occupant of the WPC, using floors 2 to 19. Floors 25 to 28 are rented to Eneco Energie, floors 29 to 32 are built as conference areas and are commercially leased to Regus. The grounds also cover the Argentine steak-restaurant Gaucho's.As the building stands at the far point of the Wilhelmina pier it is built on, there is a view of the surrounding harbours and city from the higher floors. The building is also an emergency centre, designed to deal with potential catastrophes in the port area and act as a coordination centre.Sir Norman Foster designed the 32-storey building. This British architect gained international fame with his designs for the London Stansted Airport, the Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank in Hong Kong, the extension of the Reichstag building in Berlin and the 259m Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt. In 1992 he designed the master plan of the entire Wilhelminapier, where the World Port Centre is standing.

  • The history of this city is founded very well with that of its port. Indeed, the harbour is the heart of the city. Is beautiful a walk and try to figure out how to live and work, between these channels is not rare to come across some wonder architrttonica or simply in any boat that offers tours and visits. By Sunday, then everything comes alive with tourists or just people who come here for a walk. In a week I'll be there was at least four times as much is that I liked.
