The Zoetermeer and Lansingerland municipalities are connected, or shall we say united by a common project: Bleizo. The Bleizo project has two main objectives: the creation of an attractive new train station along the line between The Hague and Utrecht, and developing the surrounding areas with a variety of programs. The design makes a clear distinction between the urban area, immediately surrounding the station, and less dense areas (used for various kinds of activities) further away from the station. New public spaces such as the Bleizo Waterpark and Bleizo Square serve as catalysts for the development. location: Bleiswijk, Zoetermeer The Netherlands design period: 2009 - 2010 implementation: 2012 - area: 82 ha program: 150.000 m2 offices, leisure, retail, business, education designed by: Juurlink [+] Geluk (Cor Geluk, Huub Juurlink, Mattijs Gevers, Sven Thorissen, Marijn Struik, Lieke Sauren) in cooperation with: Movaris, Next consultants, Concire, Buck, Grondmij commissioned by: GR Bleizo
