Focus on Utrecht

Utrecht is the 4th Dutch city with almost 320,000 inhabitants in the municipality and 650,000 in the urban area. It is also the capital city of the eponymous province that counts about 1.2 million inhabitants.

Utrecht and its suburbs belong to the "Randstad", an urbanised region of more than 7.1 million inhabitants including the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. All these cities are encircling the "Groene Hart" (the green heart), a not very built-up region in the heart of the Netherlands.

Utrecht is a really dynamic city that is known for its university and its cathedral (Dom).

In August 2017, Codata teams listed 825 shops in Utrecht's city centre, including 315 Retailers. The Shopping Streets perimeter counts 648 shops. The shopping centres "Hoog Catharijne" and "Station Utrecht Centraal" are included in the Shopping Streets perimeter and offer 177 shops.

The shopping centre "Shoppingcenter Overvecht" and its small adjoining retail area are located near the city centre (2,500 m away from the city centre). Together, they total 126 shops, including 69 Retailers.

In the Shopping Streets, Retailers represent 35.34% of the shops. They can be found on the following main axes:

  • The Oudegracht with Hollister, Hema, Mango, H&M, Pull&Bear…

  • The Lange Elisabethstraat and its extension, the Steenweg with Tommy Hilfiger, Jack & Jones, Foot Locker, Massimo Dutti…

  • Vredenburg with Zara, The Sting, Kiko, Douglas, Cool Cat…

For example, the 27,500 sq m extension of the Shopping Centre Hoog Catharijne - ideally located between the pedestrian centre and the main station - is planned. 80 units will be added to the 132 existing ones and 1,300 new parking spaces will be created. A cinema, a hotel and leisure spaces are also planned.
