Het Groen Kwartier (the Green Quarter) is a pedestrian-only luxury development on the site of a large 19th-century former military hospital complex. It is located right next to PAKT, an exciting repurposed industrial site housing a melting pot of creative businesses in renovated warehouses, with an ambitious rooftop city farming project.

Also nearby is the Zurenborg area – with its stunning Art Nouveau and fin de siècle-style mansions -, The De Koninck brewery – a family-run business that has been brewing the local beer “bolleke” since 1833 -, and the main ring road. The Jane, a two-star Michelin restaurant, is located in the former hospital chapel at the center of the complex’s ensemble.
