Tilburg shows its grin in the Spoorzone. Proud and candid. The Spoorzone is surprising and challenging, whereby the whole is more than the sum of its parts. We offer space for start-up and creative entrepreneurship in a stimulating, inspiring, unpolished and inviting environment. Thanks to the typical Tilburg decisiveness and the “roll up your sleeves” mentality, so many new initiatives see the light here. Through all of the industriousness, the Spoorzone has become a breeding ground for knowledge and innovation. And with the cultural and catering options, the Spoorzone is becoming THE place in Tilburg to discover. Individual, entrepreneur or hospitality owner. Anyone who thinks in an innovative manner, or dares and leads with passion will feel at home in the Spoorzone.
The total programme for works in the Spoorzone is about 50,000 m2. This programme was developed to be phased in over time, increasing with the annual demand for office space. In this, Tilburg chose to provide a comprehensive part of the future office demand for the entire centre in the Spoorzone. The number of square metres is substantial.
Because the mix of functions is an important positive factor for companies to want to be based here, we chose to spread the volume over the entire planning area. The “working” programme is about offices. There is no space for industrial functions. Within “offices", there is a diverse pallet of spaces. In addition to offices, there are also studios, co-working spaces, studios, rooms dedicated to education and everything in between.
And for the creative industry: a specific ambition of the city of Tilburg is to offer space in the Spoorzone as a “breeding ground". The intention is to offer space for start-up and creative entrepreneurship in a stimulating, inspiring, unpolished and inviting environment. The industrial properties of the Workspace are particularly suitable for this here. The city wants to offer a new generation of creative and knowledge-intensive entrepreneurs the opportunity to turn their talents into industriousness.
The Spoorzone is made to be the place where Tilburg can realize its ambitions in the area of renewal and experimentation. The industrial character and lively mix are inviting for the establishment of the self-employed, start-ups and expansions. The city has divided up a volume of about 2000 m2 (to be offered in phases) into smaller units of 20-75 m2. The target group consists of ambitious, innovative entrepreneurs with growth potential in the knowledge economy and creative industry. To keep it affordable, the units are delivered on a basic level and with temporary rental contracts of up to 3-5 years.
