Gorlaeus Bicycle Storage

The sustainable demolition of the Gorlaeus high-rise of the Faculty of Science is now complete. This demolition is part of the redevelopment of the faculty. A part of the steel construction will form the basis of a new green bike park.

The lower stories of the old Gorlaeus high-rise were saved from demolition. They will be turned into a new, green bicycle storage to accommodate more than 3.000 bikes. The storage will be ready for use with the opening of phase 2A of the Gorlaeus Building. The bike storage will be located on the ground floor. On the first floor, a pleasant rooftop garden will be created. Part of the old steel construction will be turned into a plant-clad pergola. The parking facility will be taken into use at the opening of phase two of the new Gorlaeus Building.
