Five specials

  1. Remain faithful

    Remain faithful

    Following the Parkkwartier in Katendrecht Heijmans is now getting its teeth into the Fenixloodsen. With creating value as main aim, also this Katendrecht diamond will soon be polished again. Going for it together will give the ultimate boost.

  2. Mix


    There will be loft apartments at the Fenixloodsen. The old building will soon be buzzing with shops, galleries, restaurants and the Walhalla theatre. The modernisation of the Katendrecht district will encourage people from different cultures and with different interests to enrich each other’s lives.

  3. Recharge

    Currently the Codarts school for the arts, the Walhalla theatre, the Fenix Food Factory and the Rotjeknor circus are temporarily based in the Fenixloodsen. We are realising promises by also offering them a space in the final location.

  4. Decide together

    Decide together

    Space and influence are key for the residents. They can already choose from apartments of 40 m2 up to as far as the demand reaches. Some of the options include linking horizontally or vertically. Residents are able to look for their ideal home in ‘Living Space Workshops’.

  5. Transform

    The Fenixloodsen have been developed with an eye to the future, so that the building can evolve with time. The new building doesn’t compete with the old building, instead it complements it. Thus preserving the raw, nautical character of the Kaap.
