OMA's masterplan for sports city in rotterdam gets approved

update (may 12, 2017): the city council of rotterdam has approved the feyenoord city concept masterplan after a public meeting. with this decision, the city supports the realization of OMA’s masterplan for feyenoord city including a new stadium on the river maas. the municipality will contribute to this major city development project through the purchase and lease of land, shares in the new stadium, and financing part of the planned infrastructure.

 

following the city council’s decision to support feyenoord city, the project will proceed with the detailed design of the masterplan and the design development of phase 1. this includes the new stadium, four residential towers, a hotel, and the development of the northern part of the strip. the new stadium is expected to open in time for the 2022-23 dutch football season.

OMA is happy that rotterdam has decided to go forward with the development of the first real sport city of northern europe, which will have a major impact on the south of rotterdam and the rest of the city,’ says david gianotten, OMA’s partner-in-charge. ‘I’m also delighted that we can maintain the legacy of feyenoord and de kuip whilst establishing a new stadium and amenities for the future of the club in dutch and european soccer.’

the stadium will be directly linked to rotterdam-zuid through a walkway and ample public space. at the core of the masterplan is ‘the strip’, a 800 meter-long boulevard connecting the new stadium to de kuip, which will be converted into apartments, commercial space, an athletics sports center, and a public square.

 

with the development of feyenoord city, OMA contributes to the next phase of development for the city of rotterdam, our home town,’ continues gianotten. ‘we help to connect parts of the city that were isolated and difficult to reach; we designed a piece of  city around the feyenoord football club and its new stadium, which will connect people through  sport and community. with this design, OMA fulfills our strong desire to develop a sport city  that is unique in the netherlands and northern europe.’
