The industrial area next to the original shopping centre is being developed into an attractive place to live. The shopping and living are will be connected. The whole project will be car-free and in the future will have a mix of almost 15,000 square meters of retail space, 400 homes, offices, cafes and restaurants. The public area will be completely renovated with lots of greenery and is only accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. All parking is out of sight, partly in a parking building and partly underground. The construction of a new intercity station across the street will create a new city center with optimal public transport connections.
JDV is responsible for the design and redevelopment of the shopping center and the adjacent building block, which forms the connection with the new district at the back and forms the new rear entrance to the shopping center. About 70 social housing apartments will be built on the roof of the parking garage, which will be connected by a communal roof garden.
Redevelopment of the shopping center consists of a complete refurbishment of the existing interior. On the top floor there will be a food court with a view over the lake and the mountains. A completely new shop deck will be built on the existing roof with a direct connection to the parking garage. The customer is central to this redevelopment. JDV combines architectural expertise with years of retail experience and customer knowledge.
