Redevelopment Scheldekwartier Vlissingen
Industrial monuments re-used in city renewal
Vlissingen had the rare opportunity to make the city whole again, reconstructing the former port area of the industrial KSG-area. Royal HaskoningDHV made a master plan in which the cultural heritage was used to the best, to give the new area a character of its own. Old machine factories and port facilities were left in place, and integrated in the urban design.
Scheldekwartier will be a unique waterfront, with a metropolitan atmosphere, golden opportunities for pleasure cruising and marinas, villas and pent houses overlooking the waterfront, lots of restaurants, shops and offices, and ample cultural functions. The combination of urban planners, landscape architects, infrastructure engineers, civil engineers, environmental specialist and financial specialists paid off: the project was finished within time and budget, and managed to make a very profitable result for the landowner of the area.
