Rotterdam is direct linked with its ports. With the River Maas. But Rotterdam is also a city where over 170 different nationalities live together and side by side. And where architecture can stand its own against major international cities like London and New York. This exciting contrast – with rugged port history on the one hand, and a modern, global character on the other – is exactly what makes Rotterdam a versatile, attractive and dynamic international city.
This can primarily be attributed to the presence of water, as well as direct links to the history of the port industry. But also to the existing factories: concrete giants that traditionally define the whole peninsula and form a rugged and robust image. Experience the unique atmosphere. Many creative entrepreneurs are enriching the Kaap with their unique restaurants, shops, coffee bars, ice cream salons, etc. This means you can literally experience Katendrecht’s new atmosphere. For example, eat Thai food at Delibird, typical Dutch food at C.E.O. baas van het vlees, Belgian food at Kwizien or French food at bistro du Bac. And buy fresh cheese, bread, coffee, delicious Kaap beer or one of the many other artisanal products at the Fenix Food Factory. Or enjoy a pleasant evening at the Walhalla theatre or on the SS Rotterdam!
IN THE HEART OF THE KATENDRECHT
Live near the Maashaven quay. A unique port building in the heart of Katendrecht, or as the people of Rotterdam say: the Kaap. An intimate city district, which is only a short walk from Rotterdam’s exciting cultural and culinary delights. That’s what it means to live in the Havenkwartier, which is the last new-build project in Katendrecht.” Kaap jij de laatste plek?”
The Havenkwartier mirrors the character of Katendrecht: headstrong and tough, but intimate and fun at the same time. The innovative design contains elements of post-war architecture and has been inspired by the characteristic port buildings found in Rotterdam’s inland harbours. characteristic contours and a combination of materials like concrete, aluminium, wood and large panes of glass help to create a layered and refined design. And thus enhance Rotterdam’s reputation as a city of architecture.
A very wide range of homes is available in the Havenkwartier. The two hundred homes come in all shapes and sizes, and there is something for every life phase. So the choice is yours! Will you opt for an apartment with one, two or even three floors? One of the spacious single-family homes with a green roof garden? A rugged Warehouse loft apartment with its own garage? Or will you be enticed by the breathtaking views from the luxury penthouses?
Rotterdam is ‘hot’ and Katendrecht features the best the city has to offer. The Havenkwartier features all ingredients that make the Kaap so exciting. A distinctive building in the heart of the peninsula – along to the quay of the Maashaven – with homes in all shapes and sizes; for every phase of life. The Havenkwartier is the last residential project that will be realised in the heart of Katendrecht. The last opportunity to become an island inhabitant at this unique location.
