focusing specifically on complex, global issues: climate change, depletion of natural resources, poverty, social injustice,
international crime and terrorism, to name but a few.

LUC The Hague has taken the two broad domains Peace & Justice and Sustainability as unique, profiling elements in the
curriculum. Interdisciplinarity is central to all learning at LUC The Hague.

Spuiforum gets green light
Published: 01 November 2013
Modified: 04 November 2013


The Hague Municipal Council on 31 October approved the zoning plan for the controversial new cultural centre in The Hague's city centre. This gives the green light for the construction of the so-called Spuiforum project.

The Nederlands Dans Theater, Residentie Orkest, Royal Conservatoire and The Hague Dance and Music Centre will all make their home in the new Spuiforum starting in 2018.

Design

The Spuiforum was designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architecten. The new building will be constructed on the site of the Dr Anton Philipszaal and Lucent Danstheater, which will be torn down. An amount of € 181 million has been earmarked for the project. The budget will also cover a temporary facility for the cultural organisations.

The plan is for the cultural organisations to move to the city centre together with the Royal Conservatoire in 2018.

Leiden University growing in The Hague

Largest office space conversion in the Netherlands

Published: 04 July 2013
Modified: 03 March 2014


Leiden University will move into a former ministry building in the Wijnhavenkwartier, the area encompassing the Spuiplein and Turfmarkt in the centre of The Hague. Campus The Hague will now be able to expand to a university campus for 3,500 students in the long run. The move marks the largest conversion of empty office space in the Netherlands.

The former Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations on the Turfmarkt will be completely stripped and refurbished. Nearly 50,000 square metres of office space will be converted, including 14,000 square metres for Leiden University as well as 170 apartments and 1,000 square metres of commercial space on the ground floor. Parking is available in the parking garage. The building is expected to be ready by mid-2016.

Leiden University opened its first location in The Hague 14 years ago. Over the last few years Campus The Hague has grown into a full-fledged faculty with academic studies which dovetail well with The Hague’s position as international city of peace and justice. Currently some 2,000 Dutch and international students study at Campus The Hague. This location will create 350 high-grade jobs in the city centre and reinforce the academic studies in the area of international law, politics and public administration.

Grote Markstraat developments

Grote Marktstraat is the main pedestrianized shopping street in The Hague. Except for cyclist, the street is traffic free since 2004.
In 2007 the Spuimarkt mall was opened including a 9 screen cinema complex.
Recently, four more projects are changing the look of the street.




De Markies

For De Markies an office building from the 1970s was demolished and replaced by retail space and appartments:

Amadeus

Across the City Hall, at one end of the Grote Marktstraat a 52m tall appartment tower is being built. At the first floors Primark will open a shop.
Amadeus replaces an office building from the 1950s at nearly the same location were W.A. Mozart lived for several months.

New design to bring Spuikwartier to life

Published: 16 July 2015


The Municipality of The Hague announced on 15 July that the tender to develop the Spuikwartier area was won by the consortium of Boele van Eesteren / Visser Smit Bouw. Architects Patrick Fransen of Architectuurstudio HH and Jo Coenen Architects & Urbanists will design the buildings.

The winning consortium submitted an integral plan for a new cultural and educational complex which will collectively house the Residentie Orkest, Nederlands Dans Theater, The Hague Dance and Music Centre and Royal Conservatoire. The new building will be realised within the planning and financial constraints stipulated by the Municipal Council and will be maintained by the consortium for the coming 25 years.

In addition to the cultural centre, apartments, bars and restaurants, a hotel and shops will also be built in the area. This should make this part of The Hague’s downtown area livelier. The plan also includes an underground parking facility for 1,500 bicycles.
Lively and sustainable

According to Deputy Mayor Joris Wijsmuller (Urban Development), the new design should make the area between the Turfmarkt, Turfhaven, Schedeldoekshaven and Spui lively and attractive. It will feature inviting walking and cycle routes with an extra square on the Turfmarkt as a new crossing. The plan includes good connections with the surrounding neighbourhoods, such as the Old Centre and Rivierenbuurt. On the Schedeldoekshaven side, a city balcony will connect up with the landing and steps of the Mercure Hotel on the Spuiplein, which will be given a multifunctional and green character.

Ben erg blij met dit plan. Fraai ontwerp, past prima in de omgeving.
Kan niet wachten tot het klaar is en het Spuiplein ook ik aangepakt.

Winner selected for building on Koningin Julianaplein

Published: 27 May 2016
Modified: 02 June 2016


The design submitted by Ontwikkelaar Synchroon b.v. and Powerhouse Company architectural bureau was chosen as the best plan for the new building on the Koningin Julianaplein by the evaluation committee. The Hague Municipal Executive has decided to use the committee’s recommendation.

Design for Koningin Julianaplein
The winning plan together with the underground bicycle parking facility provides a more attractive entrance to the city and a better use of the public space in front of Central Station. The building will house 50 public housing units and starter apartments. The green design for the public space on the square will create a natural connection between the centre and the Koekamp.
Tender

The Municipal Executive determined the basic principles for the tender for the construction on the Koningin Julianaplein in November 2015. Project developers could earn extra points by including public housing in their plan. The 2 project developers which were not selected now have 2 weeks to lodge their objections to the decision.

Planning
Work will start on the project in the summer of 2017, after the underground bicycle parking facility is completed. This facility will remain in use during the project. The building is expected to be finished at the beginning of 2019.

Den Haag Nieuw Centraal masterplan
The redevelopment of the Koningin Julianaplein, part of the redevelopment project for the entire area around Central Station, has been going on for some time. The Municipal Council together with the NS and Babylon approved the Den Haag Nieuw Centraal masterplan more than 10 years ago. The area has since been getting a makeover in different stages. The last project is now the Koningin Julianaplein in front of the station.

Hip hotel and homes in Binckhorsthaven

Published: 22 December 2016 Modified: 02 February 2017

A new building will be constructed in the Binckhorsthaven with 146 homes, space for start-ups, a boutique hotel, restaurants and parking.

The new building will integrate the former Ockenburg youth hostel (Van Klingeren Vleugel). The outdoor space around the Binckhorsthaven will be improved with a new design for the Melkwegstraat, a new location for sports and recreation and extra trees and plants.

According to Deputy Mayor Boudewijn Revis, ‘Once the location at the corner of the Saturnusstraat and Melkwegstraat along the Binckhorsthaven has been completed, this area will form a sort of peninsula together with the KPN area. The roof of the Klingeren pavilion will get plants and water and possibly a roof terrace with a fantastic view over the entire Binckhorst. This way people can enjoy The Hague to the fullest so close to the city centre.’

This will be the fourth location in the Binckhorst area to be developed after the Juno complex, Binck Island and the Trekvliet zone. The plans will be realised between 2017 and 2020.
