The station area of Hilversum will have a complete overhaul in the coming years. The demolition of the GAK building was the starting point of this redevelopment. However, the work won’t be starting for the time being. The former GAK location will not be used until at least 2021. A large empty space next to the bus station for the next two to four years is undesirable. The wish is to create a lively, attractive and safe place with a temporary layout of this location. Part of the space is intended for temporary bicycle storage. The temporary parking offers space for around 600 bicycles and 50 scooters. The other part, the main part of the GAK location, the area around Hilversum Marketing and the lawn are available for a creative solution. Hilversum Marketing will be collecting ideas from various parties, residents and entrepreneurs from the city in the coming weeks. In September, we would like to present a plan that is feasible, offers liveliness to this unique area and contributes to the positioning of Hilversum.
