Schiecentrale stage 4b, built around the northwestern side of the old Schiecentrale, is the last part of the redevelopment of the former Schiehaven power-station. The combination of offices, homes and home/work units brings even more life into the area, which in recent years has become the audiovisual center of the city of Rotterdam.
The Schiecentrale is located in the Lloydkwartier, an area full of creative activity that now houses dozens of companies from the ICT, advertising and audiovisual sector. This ambitious project provides an economic boost to the Audio / Visual, film and ICT sectors. The offices, live / work units, harbour-houses and parking are therefore primarily for the accommodation of persons engaged in these sectors.
The new building contains roughly 50,000 square meters. From this 7000 square meters of offices. There is room for 156 homes and home/work units and twenty-one waterside dwellings of 3.5 floors each. The additional facilities include a supermarket (2000 square meters), a gymnasium (600 square meters), 400 parking spaces in a garage and a semi-public deck of 3000 square meters.
