HALFWEG, 1 November 2018 – With the dismantling of the enormous point shed on the SugarCity site, a next phase has started for the construction of the SugarCity Outlet Centre. The warehouse, which dates from 1980, then enters the sale via Troostwijk Auctions. The lot closes on 9 November.
The enormous point shed consists of a special steel construction and has an area of approximately 4,000 m2 with a ridge height of 23 meters. The skeleton is completely dismountable. The column-free shed was used by the sugar factory to store pulp, a residual product of the sugar beet, which was processed into cattle feed.
Founder & President of the Cobraspen Group, Luigi Prins, area developer of the SugarCity site, sees the point shed as an ideal indoor market or event hall in a city as a center facility. “The hall has an industrial look and needs no further decoration. In addition, the hall can be adjusted in size. It could also be put down in a smaller size. ”
