The construction and design of Hofbogenpark is putting the integration of green spaces and sustainability at the forefront.
Moreover, with the new green spaces, Rotterdam will get a new eco-friendly cityscape that promotes physical well-being, air quality, and reduces noise pollution.
Additionally, the expansion is another way Rotterdam is solidifying its commitment to sustainability, biodiversity, and community well-being.
According to Hanadi Al-Baz of the International Affairs and European Subsidies team at Gemeente Rotterdam, the highline will serve as a place where nature and people will come together. The design team hopes Hofbogenpark serves as a reminder of the connection between people and nature.
Finally, the new rooftop park is being built with an innovative water system to facilitate rainwater use. The system will collect and purify rainwater while helping the city manage extreme rainfalls and droughts.
Also, this system will eliminate the use of tap water for irrigation and recreational water areas.
