I agree tha both Birmingham and Rotterdam will increase their level of importance in Europe, and both are exciting cities for new developments. However, I cannot see any other relationship between them. One is an inland city, the other a port city. That major geographical difference seems important to me. Rotterdam also seems to have a longer history of highrises, being one of the pioneers in Europe.

Both are facinating cities though, and I will keep track of their impressive new developments.

As for Frankfurt. It certainly is an Alpha city on the world business stage. But it lacks much what other Alpha cities around the world have. I would still say Berlin and Hamburg in Germany feel larger and more important, although of cause on the international business front, Frankfurt holds it's own.
