MVRDV Architects design new market hall in Rotterdam 

Provast is in the process of developing the Market Hall on the Grote Markt, near the Hoogstraat, in the Laurens quarter in Rotterdam. This is a unique and innovative project, and the Netherlands’ first indoor, permanent food market will form a significant part of it.

The market will include 100, mostly permanent, stalls covering a total gross lettable area of 1,800 m2. It is expected that 65 vendors will utilize the space. The Market Hall also comprises a total gross lettable retail area of 3,000 m2 and total gross lettable catering area of 1,600 m2 on the ground level and first floor, as well as a supermarket of 1,800 m2 and an underground car park for 1,100 cars. The Market Hall is housed in an arch-shaped building, and will include 246 residences.

The Market Hall is expected to be ready by 2010 and will be delivered as a turnkey acquisition to Rodamco Europe.

MVDRV Architects in Rotterdam are responsible for the design, while Provast, based in The Hague, will build the Market Hall
