Project Description

Ringers Quarter Alkmaar

Part of the location of the project site belongs to the monumental Ringers chocolate factory and overlooks the Old City of Alkmaar. It is just 10 minutes walking distance from the historic center and 5 minutes from the municipalty and the shopping area. The design strives for an attractive living environment right next to cultural and leisure features and of course the re-developed Ringers factory. In a varied typology of urban appartements there are about 275 new ones to come. In the renewed Ringers chocolate factory a chocolate experience center will be located, as well as shops, a restaurant and a hotel.
