In the plan Buitenhavenweg is seen as the most important connection linking the Nieuw-Mathenesse industrial estate with Schiedam city centre. There is a bottleneck in this route near Koemarktbrug, for which a new quay will be constructed. Oranjestraat becomes a green vista ending in a park on Koemarkt. Two new buildings on both sides of the square, together, form a new entrance to the city centre. Three types of industrial development are proposed for the VROM site. Together they form an enclave in which various forms of living and working can be accommodated.
