Feyenoord City 2.0: vision for vibrant waterfront district unveiled

ROTTERDAM, 29 March 2023 – New urban vision for Feyenoord City 2.0 revealed, featuring a green and water-rich neighbourhood, housing opportunities, diverse amenities, and engaging the community in the development process.


New spatial vision for Feyenoord City 2.0

Since the proposed stadium in Feyenoord City has been officially abandoned, the Danish firm EFFEKT and the Rotterdam firms OMA and LOLA, under the guidance of the Stichting Gebiedsontwikkeling aan de Maas (Stigam) and the municipality, have explored the spatial possibilities of the Waterkant area. Waterkant is the new development for the site on the Nieuwe Maas, where the new stadium and adjacent housing were planned. The consultation document contains the findings of the exploration. It aims to engage the city and its residents in discussions about the opportunities and possibilities for transforming Waterkant into an attractive urban area that contributes to the ambitions of Rotterdam-Zuid.


Potential for attractive green and water-rich district

The exploration reveals that Waterkant's prime location on the river offers significant potential to become an appealing green and water-rich neighborhood with numerous amenities and recreational opportunities. Various examples demonstrate ample room for further development.

Councillor Chantal Zeegers (Climate, Construction and Housing) said, “It's wonderful that these urban planning and architectural firms have quickly showcased the potential of this location in their exploration. Their innovative vision for this special site on the Maas is fantastic. Waterkant will become a beautiful neighbourhood with plenty of housing, diverse amenities, and the Feyenoord Tidal Park. It will create a new hotspot in Rotterdam-Zuid where people will want to live, work, and spend their leisure time. I especially invite Rotterdammers to participate in the upcoming city conversations and come up with refreshing and original ideas.”

City conversations

With the results of the firms' exploration, the municipality, in collaboration with Stichting Gebiedsontwikkeling aan de Maas, will engage the city, residents of surrounding neighbourhoods, youth in Zuid, entrepreneurs, and other interested parties in conversations during May and June. The collected ideas will be incorporated into the next phase of exploration (the so-called ambition document) to ensure a broadly supported and embraced new plan. The ambition document will be presented to the city council for decision-making in the autumn.
