Mixed-use developments are often urban developments in which commercial, cultural, recreational, institutional and/or industrial uses are combined. The functions are physically and functionally integrated. These areas are characterised as having an especially nice living environment. The developments can be realised in the form of a single building, a city block or entire neighbourhoods.
Why invest in Mixed Use locations?
Why invest in mixed use?Effective combination
The strength of the mixed-use development lies in the combination of different functions within a specific area or building. Examples here include a family doctor’s practice, together with a physiotherapist and pharmacy within a single building. Combinations like this are efficient for users, while also facilitating easier cooperation for the respective parties – a win-win situation that can be applied in many cases.
Mixed use in a nutshellMixed use developments can be broadly applied, whether it’s a family doctor’s practice or an entire urban development project. Mixed use can be applied. There are several criteria that mixed-use locations must satisfy:
• A combination of related functions is present.
• A significant part of the development is set aside for each function.
• There are good connections for pedestrians.
What are mixed developments?A mixed-use development ensures that one’s time can be used more productively. The pleasure and ease of daily routines can be vastly enhanced. What’s more, mixed-use developments also make efficient use of space and public infrastructure.
The right mix of applications can also be efficient in terms of using resources such as the road network, parking places, and even water and the sewerage system. This is because different applications are generally active at different times of the day, week or even year!
In short, a mixed-use development generates numerous benefits. If you’re curious to find out more about (one of the) mixed-use developments, we’d be happy to meet personally to fill you in.
