NOTES: The new offices for OTH have been built on top of a concrete pier, called Kraanspoor, meaning 'crane track'. Built in 1952, it was the final stage of a shipbuilding 'assembly line' that spanned the harbour basin. The track originally had two cranes on top of it, but these were demolished to make way for the new development, a long steel and glass box that appears to float above the concrete pier.
