Chassé Park

After centuries of use as a military base, a 13-hectare (32 acre) land parcel in the historic center of Breda has been reborn as a public domain. Based on a plan created by architect Rem Koolhas (Office for Metropolitan Architecture), Chassé Park, a multiuse urban infill community has sprouted up where barracks once housed soldiers. It comprises 700 housing units, including 100 units of public housing; 30,000 square meters (322,917 sf) of office space; 2,000 square meters (21,528 sf) of retail space; 1,500 underground parking spaces; and eight hectares (20 ac) of public parkland.

The Glen

More than just an example of the successful redevelopment and integration of a closed military base with its community, The Glen is also a textbook example of how a town can build consensus among its citizens and marshal its resources to obtain the best outcome for a challenging real estate opportunity.
