Apartment complex Kop van Oost

Kop van Oost lies between the Sontweg and Eemskanaal on the outskirts of the city of Groningen. Because the port areas were adaptively re-used into large-scale office complexes in the nineties, this former port area was designated to be developed into residential destination with the new name, Kop van Oost, or Eastern Head. Mecanoo gave the area a vibrant design with two apartment complexes, a broad promenade along the Eemskanaal and a public square. The first phase will be realized in 2009, the second phase follows two years later.
