Developing the Tapijnkazerne grounds
The development of the Tapijnkazerne grounds is in full swing. Recently the new draft design was presented in a third dialogue session with interested parties. The architect’s ideas were well received and the comments the attendees gave will further shape the design. The next session is scheduled for 14 June (preliminary schedule) and a council round one week later. The final design, including the costs, will then be submitted to the municipal council before the summer. The project is expected to break ground in mid-2017.

The university and the province are the mutual owners of the buildings, and the municipality of the undeveloped terrain. The utilisation of the monumental buildings by Maastricht University for education and research contributes to the university’s position in the city and to the Kennis-As Limburg development. It’s also a great impulse for the connection between city and university.
