In the city of The Hague, a former industrial estate is being redeveloped into a living/working area, namely the Central Innovation District
What we do
The Future Mobility Network has written a successful mobility vision for BinckPARK, an industrial-looking mobility hub in the CID. This hub offers all residents of the CID the opportunity to make use of parking facilities, shared cars, shared bicycles and other forms of innovative mobility. A large range of different sub-modalities at a central location makes sub-mobility reliable and flexible, so that more people will use it. The effect of using more (electric) sub-mobility is reduced CO2 emissions and more space for greenery and facilities, thus adding value to the quality of life in the neighbourhood. In addition to writing a vision, the visions implement it in practice through a learning and development process.
Why we do it
In an increasing number of urban developments, we are experiencing the dilemma of parking and limited space. We have noticed that the two worlds of ‘built environment’ and ‘mobility’ are still far away from each other. Nevertheless, we have to contend with the enormous tasks of urbanisation in which these two worlds can no longer be seen in isolation from each other. That is why we try to sit down at the drawing board in the first phases of project and urban area developments, so that the mobility needs of (future) users fit in with the current design.
The result of our approach is that VORM has won the municipality of The Hague’s tender for Trekvlietzone lot 1B. In this project, The Future Mobility Network was the connecting link between the built environment and mobility. The next step in this project is the implementation of the mobility hub, which will serve as an example for future developments. BinckPARK will be completed in 2022.
