Redevelopment of Plein 1944


The redevelopment to transform Plein 44 in Nijmegen into a destination meeting point in the city.

The project

The project consisted of a three-storey underground car park of 13 100sqm (418 places), a cycle storage (1200 places), shops and hospitality spaces of 12 000sqm and approximately 131 apartments spread over 16 500sqm.


The project was divided into phases:
Block A: 2-storeys below ground, one part 6-storeys above ground and another 9-storeys above ground.
Block B: 2-storeys below ground, one part 6-storeys above ground and another 9-storeys above ground
Block C: 3-storeys below ground, one part 5-storeys above ground and another part 6-storeys above ground.


The project was logistically complex and challenging due to its location in an inner-city pedestrianised shopping area. We had to take into account the shopping public on all sides of the site. In addition, there were numerous deliveries to stores like V&D and Hema that had to be taken into account. Environmental management played an important role.

The site was also located next to a bus station.
