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.

De Liede is a business park in a higher-thanaverage environmental category (up to 4.2). Construction is permitted up to a height of 12
metres and the flexible plot layout gives plenty of freedom. This business park has great access thanks to its proximity to the A9, N205 and N201, with Schiphol just around the corner. High-visibility plots are for sale right next to the N205, so your premises will be on view to around 50,000 passing motorists each and every day. Businesses at De Liede are literally highly visible. The site’s spatial quality requirements are laid down in the master plan and the zoning plan, so you can rest assured that any building on De Liede looks great.
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.
