Rotterdam – City in the Making

City Rotterdam
Name City in the making
Description  The association City in making was born in Rotterdam to take on the redevelopment of vacant properties, in the spirit of the historic housing cooperatives. An essential aspect is the combination of living and working: the upper floors of the buildings are made suitable for living and/or working; the ground floors are made available for production and collective use. Financial flow coming from the rent of the upper floors allows low-cost access to the ground facilities. Both workshops and multi-use spaces create the link between the residents and users of the buildings and the neighborhood. In this way, they play an active role in the city and in these new communities.

For a 10-year period, the property owner housing corporation Havensteder has transferred the managing of buildings placed in Rotterdam Noord to City in the Making, without any charge, but with taking on all responsibilities.
