Hart 010 Masterplan

Rotterdam, Netherlands

Status: Completed
Project Design: 2020 - 2022
Project Realisation: 2022 - 2032
Address: Coolsingel & Westblaak, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Located at the intersection of the Coolsingel and Westblaak boulevards, the area is being developed by different parties. The public transport node at the Beurs metro station will be upgraded, the outdoor space will be improved, and various buildings will get new functions. In the future, travellers will access the city centre via the improved metro station and arrive to a vibrant new area with a mix of living, working and social facilities with more than 550 homes and a hotel.

De Coolse Poort office building will have new functions while retaining the ‘Post-65’ architecture (built heritage dating from 1965-1990). The facade will be refurbished, and the building will offer space for offices, flexible workplaces, shops, catering, and a hotel. The adjacent office block on Westblaak is making way for high-rise with a maximum height of 200 metres.

This tower will house a mix of living, a variety of facilities, workplaces, shops, cafes and restaurants. Future residents could choose from 550 to 700 owner-occupied and rental homes, ranging from affordable to the higher segment. At least 50% of the homes are planned for students and people with middle income. Shared facilities and green roof terraces for residents and visitors will encourage meetings and social contact.

Beurs metro station, the busiest metro station in the Netherlands, will have a renewed entrance to the city centre, towards Binnenwegplein. The Municipality of Rotterdam, RET and the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam-The Hague are exploring ways of improving comfort, accessibility, safety, underground bike parking, the connection to other modes of transport, and accommodating more passengers in the future.
