The shopping centre of Eindhoven’s newly-built Meerhoven district will change in the coming years.
According to the centre’s new owner, Lone Star Funds, this area should be more attractive, with additional terraces, restaurants, and shops. The nearby Meerland park will also be extended to reach the shopping district.
The shopping centre new name will be Terminal M. This refers to the airport that used to be there. All kinds of ‘aviation elements’ appear in the new shopping centre’s design too. The use of the letter M also has links to popular areas in Eindhoven, such as Strijp-S and Strijp-T.
“Terminal M will be an area where it will be nice to stay and relax. The Meerhoven neighbourhood is currently the fastest growing neighbourhood in Eindhoven. It will join in on that vibe,’ says Barbara Ploeger on behalf of the new owner. According to the owner, research shows that Meerhoven residents want the neighbourhood’s central area to be more of a social, green space.
Meerhoven is growing fast. The number of expats and highly educated young families in this area has increased rapidly over the past ten years.
