Living experience, Hoogezand

Hoogezand_Living in the middle of Groningen

Hoogezand does not bear a very good name in the region. If that’s not where you are from, you usually wouldn’t make it your first choice to live in. 12N Urban Matters and Bestwerk were asked to investigate the relationship between the desired future identity of the municipality and the development of housing in Hoogezand-Sappemeer.

These were the results:

  1. A firm promise from Hoogezand-Sappemeer in the housing market of the Northern Netherlands.
  2. Indication of a positive identity of Hoogezand-Sappemeer.
  3. A building development and living experience that enhances the desired image of Hoogezand-Sappemeer.
  4. A concrete interpretation of Vosholen II as the next construction site.
