The municipality of Vlaardingen has selected Heijmans for the Buizengat-Oost
inner city area development. Heijmans' proposal is based on a phased development
linked to the local market's development. Heijmans' plan comprises approximately
180 homes and apartments. The plan must be completed by 2020. The development
value amounts to over € 50 million.
Buizengat-Oost is located on the former country estate of a trader in spices.
Heijmans will incorporate the area's rich history in its plans. The area is
adjacent to the Oranjepark and forms part of Vlaardingen's inner city. The
striking fire station and water tower in the area will be given a new use and
will remain icons.
Both parties will now sign an agreement of intent under which the plan will be
worked out in further detail. Following mutual
agreement, the results from this
will be incorporated into a partnership agreement and ultimately an
implementation agreement. Initial construction activities are expected to start
This project is consistent with Heijmans' strategy calling for a focus on its
strength as an inner city area developer and on strengthening inner cities. The
Heijmans proposals specify that the Heijmans Wenswonen, Heijmans Huismerk and
Heijmans Morph concepts will be applied.
Heijmans is a listed company that combines activities related to real estate
development, residential building, non-residential building, technical services
