The relocation of the Noorderbrug landing has freed up space for the development of the Belvédère Retail Park. In the coming years, the retailpark accommodate a concentration of large-scale retail stores focusing on the inhabitants of Maastricht and the surrounding areas. As a result of the interventions in the infrastructure, the Bevédère Retail Park is optimally visible and easily accessible from all directions.
Two DIY stores, six lifestyle shops
The GAMMA and Praxis are two large DIY stores that have now established themselves at the Belvédère Retail Park. Next to the GAMMA, expansion of the Retailpark is currently under construction. In the summer of 2020, six lifestyle stores will open their doors in one communal building. These are Leen Bakker, Beter Bed, Beddenreus, Kwantum, JYSK and Carpetright.
Planning procedure for next phase Retail Park in progress
In order to have a good and promising perspective for the future, a concentration of stores, adequate size and broad branching is important. In addition to the construction and lifestyle shops, other retail stores must also be able to establish themselves at Belvédère Retail Park. The expansion of the Retail Park is planned directly along the new Noorderbrug landing and alongside the Fort Willemweg. In the middle of the park there will be a large central parking facility.
In order to make this development possible, the Municipal Council adopted a new zoning plan for the Retail Park in 2019. An appeal is currently pending before the Raad van State. As soon as the zoning plan is irrevocable further development of the Belvédère Retail Park can be started. The total development is expected to require 4 to 5 years.
