Cordeel Property Service delivers circular BlueCity outdoor terrace
At the former Tropicana in Rotterdam, BlueCity has evolved from an empty swimming pool into the beating heart of the city and region’s circular economy. A magnet for sustainable entrepreneurs, the building provides space for start-ups and scale-ups to cultivate viable plans that will have tangible impact.
BlueCity is currently expanding by adding an outdoor area. This new terrace with its canopy and walkway is now complete and will be in use this summer. Offering spectacular views of the city skyline, the attractive addition has been built over the former outdoor swimming pool.
During the work we focused on minimising our footprint. The steel and terrace railings originate from a gas platform in the North Sea. The wooden beams below the terrace and the underlay are also circular. We made the benches and window frames in our own carpentry workshop and the doors came from our storage facility.
Sustainable, circular and completed within a very short timeframe. A great achievement by the Property Service team.
