Project ‘Werkspoorkwartier: Creative Circular Manufacturing’ will make the area attractive for small SMEs and the creative industries. Several developments are taking place in the area:
Het Hof van Cartesius
A vacant lot will become a working space for starting, creative entrepreneurs and a dynamic meeting space in the area. The buildings are made of reused building materials and construction waste materials.
Several existing buildings will be circularly renovated, for example ‘Werkspoorfabriek/Lasloods’. These will become locations for new activity in the area.
Vrijhaven: an inviting hotspot for experiment, creativity and exposition. Here, artists and creative entrepreneurs build their own circular working space.
The abandoned industrial harbour will be transformed into a public space with sustainable hospitality sites.
The ERDF project Werkspoorkwartier develops a ‘circular hub’ for innovative and high-quality reuse of construction materials: Buurman Utrecht. Locally scrapped materials will become base materials for other productions.
