The Delftse Poort was built in 1991 and has got 41 floors which make the building 151 meters tall. This is one of the buildings that made Rotterdam known as Manhattan at he Maas. A second smaller tower with a height of 93 meters is located right next to the tower of 151 meters. The two towers are linked by a block in the middle. The Delftse Poort was designed by architect Abe Bonnema,

    Reflective glass
    The facade of the Delftse Poort consists of maintenance free, blue coloured reflective glass, which makes the appearance of the building modern and majestic. In the past the huge facade was used several times for publicity stunts and at Christmas a starry sky is created by means of thousands of LED lights.

    Foodcourt Delftse Poort
    Since the refurbishing of the Delftse Poort building into office space for smaller businesses, a huge foodcourt has opened at the former corporate lunchroom. The Delftse Poort Foodcourt is accessible to the public. The Delftse Poort Foodcourt offers well-known restaurants, such as O'Pazzo Italian food and Asian Glories Chinese food.
