Schiestraat near rotterdam central station. This area is labeled as ‘Rotterdam Central District’. Parts of the area are pretty rundown and seem to be both a planned and unplanned place for ‘creative industries’. For Dutch terms the atmosphere is a bit gritty, reflecting unpolished urban life with here and there small signs of creative activities. It seems that the ambitious plans (HERE) are aiming to turn this area into a high-end commercial center.
