New Hague Cultural Heart
(Thu 28 May 2009)

Plans are afoot to transform the Spuiplein, the Nieuwe Kerk and the Rabbi Maarsenplein into the Spui International Cultural Forum by 2018.
The main focus of the plans, already discussed by the Mayor and Aldermen of The Hague, is a new music and dance centre on the
site of the present Lucent Danstheater and the Anton Philipszaal, which will be demolished in 2013.

According to a report by newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, the renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas has presented two designs.
The current favourite would be a 100-metre-high tower block housing the music and dance centres and the Royal Conservatorium,
as well as a number of smaller venues. The Koolhaas plan also encompasses the surrounding areas, which will form a single cultural zone.

The cost is estimated at 240 million euros and the hope is that this investment in a new ‘cultural heart’ will help The Hague to realise
its ambition to become Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. The low-budget Lucent Danstheater and the Anton Philipszaal, built in
the late 80s, have not withstood the test of time.

Some very nice projects going on! Wished that some of them were being planned for Rotterdam instead!

There's no need: Rotterdam is already booming!

Kijkduin will get a new appearance in the next decade, some plans are shown below:

It looks like the tower is incorporated in the new oval hotel-tower.

DEMOCRACY

The Hague city council wants to locate the House for Democracy and the Constitutional State temporarily above Cafe Dudok. As permanent location, The Hague is considering a new property on the corner of Spui and Kalvermarkt. The council will shortly confer with the home affairs ministry on the proposal. The House for Democracy is an initiative of the cabinet, which will make a permanent 3.5 million euros available. From the next academic year, a start will be made with programmes for 25,000 schoolchildren a year. From 2012, the house is to be completely ready.

Well, The Hague deserves -at least- some attention, so I'll keep on posting sometimes.
This thread needs more replies as well!
It's only too much, with a slow internet connection...

Wow, I didn't know there are plans for a 180-200 meter tall tower in The Hague. How serious is this plan?

It is hard to tell, though I'm going to give you some sources. Perhaps you can give a verdict?


- At first there was only an idea to build a tower of just over 100m. It's a good location for a development, since it is located between the city centre en the Central Station/Mortorway A12. No 'real' design was shown, btw [page 20].

- A few years later the next article appeared on the internet:
Quote:
ING Real Estate Development and IPMMC Vastgoed have become the joint owners of the BelleVue building, for the sum of € 21.1 million, situated in the centre of The Hague.
Article: website ING-re.

- Meyer&VanSchooten Arch. was given the opportunity to design the tower (first picture of post 49). It was approximately 130m tall, just under the local height restrictions (140m).

- Then, in 2008 this site has become a height-restriction-free-zone. You can read that in this Dutch newspaper item.

- The new renders of Meyer&VanSchooten Arch. can also be seen in Post 49 [# 2 & 3].

180-200 would be ideal for that location.

I don't like any of the released designs for Bellevue. They should build a tower of 200 meter in the same style as the nearby Hoftoren. The line of the Hoftoren's crown should be continued in this new building, with the highest point on the Bezuidenhoutseweg/Rijnstraat.

However, i guess the development of this location will be delayed for several years because of the creditcrunch.

Hopefully they will come up with an improved design in a few years.
