Groundbreaking event shopping centre Hanzewijk in Kampen
On Thursday 29 January, the construction of the shopping centre and housing in Hanzewijk in Kampen was officially launched by member of the Provincial Executive Ineke Bakker, Evert Leideman (director and board member of deltaWonen), Sander van Oss (director of development at Multi Netherlands) and alderman Martin Ekker (municipality of Kampen).
The actual construction of the shopping centre started in December. Multi has signed up the supermarkets Jumbo and Lidl as well as Kruidvat and Primera, resulting in approximately 70% of the total retail space already being rented out. The shops and housing are due to be completed by the start of 2016.
As part of the restructuring of Hanzewijk, the existing row of shops on Dr. Damstraat is to be demolished and replaced with a new shopping centre to be located at the corner of Beneluxweg and Dr. Damstraat. The long-term plan is to build a shopping centre with approximately 6,000 m2 of retail space, 2,000 m2 of which will be built on the spot where the existing row of shops stands. 108 rental and owner-occupied properties and approximately 300 parking spaces will be built above and next to the shops.
Shops and housing
Multi Netherlands is responsible for the development and construction of the shops and will be owner of the shopping centre while deltaWonen is responsible for the housing. The project will be realised in close collaboration with the municipality of Kampen. Multi is currently discussing the further development of the shopping centre with various (local) retailers. In addition, a number of tenants based along the existing row of shops such as Primera will be moving to the new shopping centre. DeltaWonen has started the sale of the housing.
The new shopping centre is part of an implemented policy by the municipality of Kampen. That policy is based on core shopping facilities (the city centre), two ‘strong’ district shopping centres and various local shopping centres. The municipality is aiming for a complete range of facilities within the districts.
As part of the Bouwimpuls development incentive, the municipality of Kampen was granted a subsidy of € 500,000 from the province of Overijssel in order to stimulate the housing development in the area. This is important for the actual realisation of the shopping centre and housing.
T+T Design, the in-house design bureau of Multi, is responsible for the concept. Heren 5 architecten is responsible for the architectural design of the project. Contractor Trebbe Oost & Noord B.V. is responsible for the construction of the shops and housing.
