The Slachthuisterrein is a slaughterhouse complex from the early 20th century and is still in reasonably good condition. It was designed by Haarlem city architects J. Leijh and L. C. Dumont as Haarlem’s first public slaughterhouse. The building is very striking and the other buildings have been built around it.
The municipality is investigating the possibility of redeveloping the old slaughterhouse buildings and grounds. The objective is to turn the Slachthuisterrein into an icon of the region and the city that is both economically sustainable and has a recognisable profile. In doing so, this piece of cultural heritage will be preserved.
The transformation/redevelopment of the former slaughterhouse, the stables, the director’s residence and the administrative offices.
The (new-build) development of dozens of residential buildings.
The establishment of the Pop Music School and practice rooms. The Municipal Council has adopted a motion within this framework for the establishment of these facilities on the Slachthuisterrein.
In 2018 the Municipality of Haarlem has started a tender procedure to find a market participant who will:
buy building sites for housing and the housing stock of the Slachthuisterrein (Slaughterhouse terrain) (except the Popcentre part of the terrain), take care of the redevelopment of the stables, the executive residence, the administration building and prepare the site for building. Moreover the winner of the tender will be responsible for five new building sites and will operate for one's own account and at one's own risk.

- The municipality is looking for a developer for the site in 2018 through a tendering procedure
Already established on this location
The site is ready for redevelopment, the frameworks have been determined and the site is temporarily being used while awaiting redevelopment.
About the area
About the area
A historic city of culture, at 12 minutes by train from inner city Amsterdam, with extensive pedestrian shopping zones and a beach nearby. Haarlem is an attractive town for families with children, as it radiates a more provincial vibe. It is also home to many small high tech companies and start-ups. The white sandy beach stretches out over almost 150 km. All along this coast, travellers will discover miles of boulevards, terraces, shops and restaurants.
