The German design department store Stilwerk has announced that it will permanently establish itself in the monumental Santos warehouse in the Rotterdam Rijnhaven District.
Stilwerk made this known during its New Year's meeting in Hamburg. The former coffee warehouse Santos is being transformed into a distinctive total concept with design shops, coworking space, serviced apartments and food concepts. The total surface area of approximately 8000 m2 will comprise around 3500 m2 of retail space.
The imposing Santos building gets a crown on the roof by adding a floating golden layer. Architects of this project are Renner Hainke Wirth Zirn Architekten and Wessel de Jonge architects. Architect Karin Renner about Stilwerk Rotterdam: 'Katendrecht is developing rapidly. For Hamburg Stilwerk was an important pioneer in urban development 20 years ago. Santos in Rotterdam is a beautiful monumental building that we embrace and that at the same time gets a destination in this modern era. We love to unite old and new, so a beautiful contrast and dialogue is created between historical and modern design. '
Stilwerk is on top of Gassan Diamonds the second big name that Frame Vastgoed can announce with regard to the retail offer in the Rijnhaven District. It is expected that construction work will start in Santos in the summer of 2019 and Stilwerk will open its doors in early 2021.

Frame Vastgoed has commissioned Van der Meulen Vastgoedzorg for the major maintenance of its rental properties in IJsselmonde Rotterdam.
This concerns the rental properties of the Kerkedijk apartment complex. This complex consists of five buildings with 22 apartments each (social rental and free sector) and is located in a green, safe environment. The Kerkedijk apartments are three and four-room apartments in three different types.
The maintenance work includes the replacement of windows and doors, repairing concrete and tackling the overall paintwork. In this way Frame wants to optimize the living enjoyment of the residents of Kerkedijk and offer them a pleasant living environment.
The project realization has now started. The work is expected to take approximately 40 weeks.
Frame Vastgoed has plans for a new design hotel next to the new Porsche Center Rotterdam, directly at the A20 in the Rotterdam 'Spaanse Polder'.
The hotel plan has approximately 150 hotel rooms and a business meeting point with conference, event and meeting facilities. With this investment, Frame strengthens the quality of the place where the new Porsche Center is being developed and the entrance zone of the Spanish Polder.
With this, Frame is the next investor to assign potential to the A20 zone on the north side of Rotterdam. The visible larger investments in the Van Nelle Fabriek and the Groothandelsmarkt also confirm the success of the sustained efforts by the entrepreneurs involved and the municipalities of Rotterdam and Schiedam with the aim of bringing the housing climate of the Spanish Polder up to standard.
Frame is expected to start in 2020 with the construction of the design hotel.
