The former Hofplein train station and the surrounding area was a forgotten place in the city centre. The Luchtsingel project that finished in 2015 by architectural office Z.U.S. changed this. It connects the 'Schieblock' with 'Hofbogen'. In the former train station building are nowadays restaurants, shops and a jazz club.
The Luchtsingel project consists of 'Het DakAkker' (Urban Roof Farm), a pedestrian bridge, Luchtpark Hofbogen, and Pompenburg Park. The 390 meters long bridge has yellow boards with names and text on the sides. You can sponsor the project and invest in a wooden board with text as requested.
The Luchtsingel has become a popular urban photo spot.
