Shopping area Osdorpplein is in transition. In a very short period of time, 3000 houses will arise in the area. Not just the size, but the social fabric of the neighbourhood undergoing transformation. Entrepreneurs face numerous challenges as a result of COVID19, the trend from offline to online shopping will continue to grow and the needed transition towards a circular shopping area requires innovative capacity and forward thinking. What values are at the heart of the transformation of Osdorpplein? How do we ensure that people feel free but connected in this cosmopolitan piece of our city? How do we keep gentrification at bay? What is needed to enable adaptability and innovative potential amongst local entrepreneurs?
