The municipality of Vlaardingen and Heijmans have signed a letter of intent for the development of the former Vijfsluizen sports park. Heijmans intends to develop and construct between 300 and 400 homes at that location. The project's value is expected to be in the € 80 million to € 100 million range and will become a new district within the municipality of Vlaardingen.

Heijmans is planning to transform the former sports park into a sustainable and future-proof district with primarily ground-floor homes and apartments. Heijmans will also transform the old Shell sports building at this site and give it a new function. There will be a great deal of room for public green space and water in the new district. Heijmans had previously acquired the lands of the former sports park.

Over the coming months, the municipality and Heijmans will work out the urban development plan in further detail. This will include the necessary research needed to change the zoning plan. The sale of these energy efficient homes is expected to commence in 2020.
