Montevideo Tower Rotterdam

Landverhuizersplein 124, 3072 MH Rotterdam


Rotterdams second tallest residential tower

The Montevideo building is second tallest residential tower in Rotterdam (after New Orleans in Rotterdam with 158 m.) and reaches 140 meters. It is one of the tallest buildings in Rotterdam and is located on the southbank of the river Maas, where many other modern skyscrapers are located. Montevideo was designed by Dutch architect Francine Houben and opened in 2005.

The former Montevideo harbour warehouse

The name of the building refers to a long gone era when there were still many harbour warehouses on the Wilhelmina Pier, close to Rotterdam city centre. One of those warehouses was called Montevideo. The Montevideo building boasts apartments, offices, restaurants, shops, caf├ęs and sports facilities, so it's almost a city in itself. From the top floors of the Montevideo tower you have a wonderful view at Rotterdam and the Erasmus Bridge. The top of the building is decorated with an 8 meters high letter M which is illuminated and turns into the wind.

Contrasting architecture in Rotterdam

On the Wilhelminapier you can see an excellent contrast between modern and historical architecture, because of the presence of the historic Hotel New York. Due to this striking Rotterdam architecture, the Wilhelmina Pier with Hotel New York and Montevideo is one of the most photographed sites of Rotterdam.
