Redevco is to redevelop a site at Kleiweg 24-48 in Gouda. Construction work is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2012, with delivery set for the autumn of that year. The current tenants C&A, WE, Blokker and V&D will remain on Kleiweg. Fashion retailer The Sting will be opening a new store in the complex.
The project comprises c. 7,000 sq.m. of retail space, some of which is already owned by Redevco. The redevelopment will include absorbing a pedestrian route which no longer functions satisfactorily. The facades on Kleiweg will be completely renovated, in a style appropriate to the architectural tradition of Kleiweg. The units leased to C&A, WE, Blokker and V&D will be enlarged, while the new store for The Sting will be a major magnet in Gouda’s key retail centre.
The Dutch Shopping Centres Council (NRW) has designated the project a “sustainable building” pilot. The project will be certified according to BREEAM-NL standards, the aim being to secure a BREAAM “Very Good” certificate. The architect is Soeters van Eldonk Architects of Amsterdam.
