New Rhijngeest South

Mix of housing and business area with lots of greenery and water
The development of the Oegstgeest side of the Bio Science Park has recently gained momentum thanks to the addition of companies like BioPartner5, DuPont and Galapagos. It is an attractive development location for Life Science and Health businesses.


Leiden University is also working with the Municipality of Oegstgeest to formulate guidelines for a new residential zoning plan in this area. The plans include a maximum of 800 residences, of which 300 will be student apartments. The rural look of New Rhijngeest South will be preserved and will form an attractive backdrop for the new houses that will be embedded in the area in keeping with the natural environment. A boating harbour with cafés and restaurants in the vicinity of the houses will form a lively and central meeting point in the area.

Sustainability plays a central role in these developments. The mobility plan takes into account high-quality public transport and cycle routes, and new buildings include sustainable energy generation and attention for biodiversity.
