Rotterdam is well known as the high-rise city of the Netherlands. The city is therefore often called "Manhattan at the Meuse",[5] because of the large number of skyscrapers 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.[6] Rotterdam is famous for its characteristic skyline, and its world-wide reputation for innovative architecture. The city stands in the European SkylineTop together with Frankfurt, Milan, London, Madrid, Paris, Warsaw and Moscow. Over 30 new high-rise projects were being developed in the early 2020s.[1]
