Kop van Zuid

Hotels near Kop van Zuid, Rotterdam, Netherlands .

A former harbor area, Kop van Zuid has been reconstructed into a new business center on the south bank of the river Maas, in Rotterdam. The Head of the South, or Southern Headland, as Kop van Zuid is translated, is one of the most recently developed districts. The rebuilding project started in 2007, and will continue until 2010. The regeneration area forms a peninsula, which used to contain working docks and a shipyard. It was separated by the rest of the city by warehouses and railway lines, crossing the river. The project was aimed at building a waterfront similar to Baltimore Inner Harbor or Boston. Thus, the oldest dock was turned into an industrial museum. The former Holland America terminal was turned into the Hotel New York. Entrepot building became a supermarket. Office complexes, dwellings in a variety of new and old architectural styles, stores offering especially designer label clothes, restaurants and a theatre have changed the whole area. Kop van Zuid is now considered a big open-air museum of modern architecture. Luxor Theatre, INHOLAND College, the World Port Centre and the head office of KPN Telecom are a few of the most notable examples of the new buildings. The harbor atmosphere was preserved to a greater extent, and former port buildings function now as studios, restaurants or apartments. Luxor Theatre is best known for its cabaret shows. It has a few beautiful halls and foyers, a theatre bar and two auditoriums of which the smaller one had a semicircular arrangement. Surfaces in this district are nicely colored using cobbles and the streets are kept very clean. The architectural Erasmus Bridge connects the city center to the Ring Road to the South through this area and has become a visual symbol of new Rotterdam.
