January 2021 saw the delivery of the first of three residential tower blocks in the Little C project: The Burton, quickly followed by The Clark and The Hammond. Following the delivery of these three buildings, Bouwinvest has added 209 liberalised sector rental homes to the Residential portfolio. The 15 buildings of the Little C project offer a total of 320 lofts and apartments, including Bouwinvest’s 209 rental apartments. Once the project is complete, this area will also include 10,000 m2 of space for offices and small-scale hospitality. And in the meantime, Familiehuis Daniel den Hoed, offering accommodation to the family members of cancer patients being treated at the nearby Erasmus MC hospital, has also opened its doors in Little C.
Not too long ago, this place in the centre of Rotterdam was somewhere people were reluctant to visit, dominated as it was by as it consisted of little more than lots of traffic flows and a piece of no man’s land. But this is now a flourishing urban centre that stitches together a number of the port city’s urban districts. And the addition of this new, thriving neighbourhood at the heart of Rotterdam is tangible proof that Bouwinvest has once again done its bit to help provide a sustainable solution to the current housing crisis. Nor has the extraordinary nature of Little C gone unnoticed in Rotterdam and beyond, as the project has already garnered a number of prizes and nominations: the 2020 Job Dura Prize, the Rotterdam Architecture Prize (both public prize and jury prize), plus it was shortlisted for the Architectenweb Awards: Residential building of the Year 2021.
