Zaanoevers, Zaanstad, 1989
The Zaanoevers project is the master plan for redevelopment of the banks of the River Zaan (including for example the Zaanwerf project planned by Cocker & Gautier) in the municipality of Zaanstad. The River Zaan river is lined with a disorderly sequence of antiquated factory buildings, windmills and housing. The master plan aims to designate waterfront residential areas and leisure areas along the river, while preserving sites of historic interest. A special feature of the plan is the redevelopment of Zaan Island from a derelict industrial zone into a riverside residential area.
