Almere Centrum

In the past ten years, Almere Centrum has developed into an attractive area. Each year, approximately 13 million people from Almere, and an increasing number of regional visitors, visit the city centre due to comprehensive facilities, the modern atmosphere, the easy access and special events. The goal is for Almere Centre to become the beating heart for residents and visitors from the city and the region. By adding programmes, such as residential construction, the number of users of this area will increase. There is space for transformation, use of empty buildings, consolidation of various areas and the use of various developing areas in Almere.

Principles for development:
1) The squares in Almere Centre will become great places to be.
2) There must be an attractive and clear route from station square to the Weerwater (Esplanade).
3) Almere Centre has mixed functions at all levels.
4) Almere Centre has a high density by adding programmes.
5) The Weerwater south of Almere Centre forms part of the area to be developed.
