Frame Vastgoed and Van Omme & De Groot Project developers and builders have concluded a building contract for the construction of the luxury apartment complex Bay House and the adjacent MGallery by Sofitel hotel in the Rotterdam Rijnhaven District.
Preparatory work for the start of construction will commence in December 2019. Bay House and the Sofitel hotel (working title "The View") are expected to be ready for delivery two and a half years later.
Director Development & Realization at Frame Real Estate, Rick van Heumen, is delighted about the collaboration: "We have found a very competent partner in Van Omme & De Groot with whom we share the same Rotterdam mentality, which makes working together pleasant."
Olaf Lange, commercial director at Van Omme & De Groot: "We are proud to be able to participate in the realization of such a beautiful and special project as Bay House and Sofitel in our own city."
Bay House will be a luxury apartment complex of around 88 owner-occupied apartments and 22 rental apartments. More than three-quarters of the apartments have already been sold. The MGallery by Sofitel hotel will consist of more than 200 rooms, a restaurant, rooftop bar, terrace, wellness center and event space.
The start of the construction of Bay House and the Sofitel hotel marks a new phase in the successful area developments on the Wilhelminapier and Katendrecht, where a large number of major projects will start in the upcoming period. The adjacent Porter House projects (a residential tower on the old "Jumbo location", equipped with a new Jumbo food market and "Galleria" with various stores) and the transformation of the monumental coffee warehouse Santos - in which the German design department store Stilwerk will be located - will also be part of this. The renovation of the Brede Hilledijk will also follow, which will give the entrance to Katendrecht the appearance and quality it deserves.
Councilor Bas Kurvers responded on behalf of the municipality: "On behalf of the municipality, I congratulate Frame and Van Omme & De Groot for entering into this agreement. The start of The View herewith heralds an ambitious development of this part of Katendrecht. This substantial development program requires strong parties who want to put their shoulders to the wheel together."

In cooperation with architect Jeroen Hoorn, Frame Vastgoed, as an investor and developer, has given Slaakhuys the luster it deserves after years of vacancy. The well-known national monument once served as the editorial and printing company of daily newspaper Het Vrije Volk and has been one of Rotterdam's newest hotspots since October 2019. The Slaak Rotterdam is now a luxury boutique hotel with 74 rooms and with restaurant & bar Didot34 it is also an asset for Rotterdam and anyone who is not a hotel guest.
The 'Rotterdam Architectuurprijs' puts the best buildings in the city in the spotlight every year. This independent prize is an initiative of the municipality of Rotterdam, organized by Architectuur Instituut Rotterdam (AIR). The best buildings are awarded the RAP jury prize and the RAP audience prize, which are intended for the winning teams of client, designer and builder.
From the 47 submissions, the jury selected ten buildings - including the Slaakhuys - that are eligible for both prizes. From November 1 up to and including December 1, anyone who cares about the architecture of Rotterdam can vote for the RAP audience prize.

During this evening, home seekers and interested parties will be given the opportunity to get a good picture of living in Feijenoord: the area from the Erasmus Bridge to Vreewijk, with Kop van Zuid and Katendrecht in between.
The program for this meeting consists of a plenary session in which Frans de Jong, area account manager Feijenoord of the Municipality of Rotterdam, and broker Michael Troost speak. Residents of the neighborhood will also speak. After that, the drink and mini fair will start where various new construction projects in the area are presented and Frame is represented.
