FIRST PHASE OF KEYSERSTROOM SHOPPING CENTRE NOW OPEN

 

After being closed for almost seven months, Winkelcentrum Keyserstroom was opened to the public last week. The new retail facilities accommodating Kruidvat and Team Kappers can now be reached by means of temporary corridors behind which the second phase of the shopping centre’s redevelopment is still under way. Van Haren will also open its doors this coming Saturday.

 

Keyserstroom is undergoing a major redevelopment based on architectural plans submitted by E-UP Design. Changes include the creation of a mezzanine with 300 m² of open space, thus increasing the spatial quality and adding light and transparency to the look of this area.

The redevelopment involves not only existing retail facilities but also modifications for new retail chains and the addition of features including a cinema complex, food service outlets and a terrace at the front of the shopping centre. From the temporary mall, it is possible to see how the finishing touches are being put on Keyserstroom’s central plaza and mezzanine.

 

By early December, the renovation of Winkelcentrum Keyserstroom will be completed and the parking garage will again be accessible from the shopping centre. Meanwhile, the pedestrian route via Eendrachtstraat will remain in use.  The parking garage is currently being upgraded and will open early in November.  The Luxor cinema complex and restaurant Het Postkantoor are expected to open in mid-December.
