The city council of Rotterdam has approved the Feyenoord City masterplan in their public meeting. With this step, the city council supports the realization of OMA’s masterplan for Feyenoord City including the new Feyenoord Stadium on the river Maas, four residential towers, a hotel and the development of the northern part of the strip.
