On the ground floor of the old Molengebouw and the Riffellokaal, there will be space for speciality shops, galleries, open workspaces for artists, eateries offering artisan food and original shop-in-shop concepts, and so on. The ground and first floors of the Meelpakhuis will feature an overlapping cultural mix of café, books, and various studios, shops and event areas. Instead of large franchises, there will be surprising, creative small businesses that have a link with art, design, crafts or sustainability.
Besides accommodating shops, galleries and eateries, several De Meelfabriek buildings will have office space for creative businesses. Workspaces will be created at the bottom of the Singeltoren and also on the upper floors of the Schoonmakerij.
Various innovative companies are already based in the former Directiekantoor, each one with an affinity for the sustainable and creative character of De Meelfabriek. The current use of the Poortgebouw offers a glimpse of the ‘strength in unity’ concept, where businesses share an open workplace and support one another.
The details have still to be finalised, but we welcome innovative businesses that wish to set up here. If you are interested in joining us, please get in touch.
