Zoning plan and Master plan

A master plan has been drawn up for the Sylvius subarea and a zoning plan has been determined. The master plans provide insight into such issues as the intended aesthetic quality of the area, densities per site, building heights and parking standards. Nevertheless, the provisions stipulated in the zoning plan will be normative. The business park is subject to supervision.

For the purposes of the Sylvius subarea it holds that:

  • minimum floor space index is 1.95 (m² GFA / m² land of the plot to be leased)
  • maximum building height 40 m
