The area hosts old factory buildings for steel production, particularly for trains and bridge constructions. The industry left this area between 1970s-2000s and since then it was used for leisure activities and to host office buildings.
The Municipality wants to make the Werkspoorkwartier a hub for circular and creative industries. The Machinery, an old industrial building located there will be refurbished and become a centre for creative media and film.
