Start transformation Hogekwartier
05.10.2012
The area around the Hogeweg in Amersfoort, the Hogekwartier, will completely change in the coming years. On either side of this city lane to the centre houses, a swimming pool and sports facilities will be build. At the same time a connection between the adjacent neighborhoods of Liendert and Schuilenburg will be made, by building a fly-over named the Buurtas. The masterplan for this transformation is made by KCAP.

Meanwhile, phase 1 - the renewal of Hogeweg and the construction of the Buurtas - started. In the movie - in the link below this article - it is shown what the transformation in the years ahead will look like. For this purpose, each quarter of an hour a new picture is taken of the building activities, resulting ultimately in a film of the complete redevelopment process.

JSA has made the design for the first building to be realized. Commissioned by De Alliantie the closed building block contains 90 houses, a hostel for drug addicts and commercial space. Below the block a parking garage is built, with on top a green courtyard.
