KCAP with Hines and MRP Development selected for “Healthy Urban Quarter” Utrecht

KCAP in team with Hines and MRP Development is among four selected parties to elaborate their plans for the ‘Healthy Urban Quarter’ in Utrecht’s station area: a new building based on green, sustainable, innovative and healthy as cornerstones. The municipality of Utrecht grants space at Jaarbeursboulevard for an attractive building for living, working, cultural and / or leisure.

All parties strive for innovative, sustainable and healthy buildings, mostly with a BREEAM and / or a WELL certificate. The available location in Utrecht’s station area offers a construction volume of 50.000 to 70.000 m2.

In the coming months, the four parties will transform their vision into a design and a plan, based on so-called dialogue meetings with the municipality. They will also include residents and stakeholders in the area. Around the summer, the municipality will select the winning party to realize its plan and design. Start construction is expected in 2019. The Healthy Urban Quarter will be completed two years later.
