|The British architect and Pritzker-prize winner, Sir Norman Foster, designed the master plan for Wilhelmina Pier so that buildings would vary in height. His own skyscraper is 404 feet high (124 meters), now with four buildings in Kop van Zuid taller. His 33 story tall building and Piano's KPN/ Beelvédère were the first high rise buildings in the area. The largest tenant of the building is the Port of Rotterdam which rents floors 2 to 19.|
