Area development SchieDistrict
Schiedam is located in the most accessible place, near Rotterdam, in the densest urban area in the Netherlands. It has a number of unique selling points such as the largest windmills in the world and a historic city center. Schiedam is best known for its gin (Jenever capital) and shipyards and currently for the offshore industry.
Our city appeals to the pioneering spirit. History is still tangible and the opportunities are visible. Schiedam is now also a breeding ground for innovative companies in Mechatronics.
Project developers see enormous opportunities in Schiedam, especially because more and more people are showing an interest in living in a historic environment. The SchieDistrict program is a dynamic response to planning challenges to improve the quality of life by restructuring and innovating business parks, building sustainable homes and creating jobs.
By improving the housing supply and facilities, we ensure that talented, economically successful citizens stay in our city and improve the upward social mobility of our citizens.
SchieDistrict’s participatory approach, combined with smart procurement strategies and room for private initiatives, also minimizes public financial risk.
