(Thomson Reuters ONE) -

Now that the Financial Close is complete, the Ballast Nedam and Heijmans
consortium, supported by 3i Infrastructure, has reached an important milestone
and the commencement of construction is close at hand. The partners will work on
the renewal and reinforcement of the area surrounding the Zuidplein and Ahoy
centres in a public private partnership with the Municipality of Rotterdam. The
work among other things comprises property development, non-residential building
and maintenance up to and including 2043 and is valued at approximately ? 200

During the multi-year area development, the Ahoy convention centre will be
significantly expanded to include an international conference centre, a music
hall, a cinema and a hotel. The Gooilandsingel road will become the connecting,
restricted traffic link for the Hart van Zuid area. An art building with a
library and theatre will be constructed on the new Plein op Zuid square. In
addition, the Zuidplein shopping centre will be renovated and expanded, and will
become more accessible by providing a better connection with the Gooilandsingel.
The new Charlois fifty-metre swimming pool will be incorporated into the current
sub-municipality city hall. Furthermore, the area will acquire much better and
much more user- friendly connections. This includes the renewal of the metro and
bus public transportation hub. The schedule calls for initial work to commence
in the second quarter of 2016.
