The selection committee will present its choice to the Rotterdam City Development Corporation (OBR). This way OBR plans to give the assignment for a preliminary design to ‘Team CS’. The tender will go according to European guidelines. As soon as the mentioned choice is a fact, the architect agencies will start on a first draft.

The Amsterdam based agency Benthem Van Crouwel is also involved in design concerning the ‘Noord-Zuidlijn’, the Central Station of Amsterdam as well as a new control-tower and terminal of Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport). Meijer en Van Schooten designed the new head offices of ING in Amsterdam and the KEMA in Arnhem. The Rotterdam based West 8 is known for its design of the Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam.
