Utrecht station area
Utrecht’s main railway station area is a dynamic and popular office location, at the most central meeting place of the Netherlands. Public transport, the new shopping center Hoog Catharijne, theatre and the historic city center are all within reach. Adjacent to the international exhibition centre Jaarbeurs. Utrecht Central Station was recently renovated and is ready for the traveller of the future. From here, you can be at Schiphol Airport in just 30 minutes.
The city is developing its city centre by expanding the current city centre on the west side of the train station area. Leading principle is a healthy, smart urbanisation, with a good mix of facilities. An example can be found in the design of the highly sustainable building ‘Wonderwoods’ in the Healthy Urban Quarter. This is aimed at creating a new balance, resulting in an environment where people, nature and technology come together in harmony.
A substantial increase of office space is an essential part of the development of this area. The largest part will be available on the west side of the train station. For instance a WTC will be opened, at the start of 2018. In 2017, VodafoneZiggo decided to locate their 1,400 fte headquarter here.
