De Pier in Scheveningen start met realisatie Reuzenrad en Pop-up Hotel

19 januari 2016

Gemeente Den Haag verleent WABO-vergunning

De Pier in Scheveningen heeft na een uitgebreide procedure groen licht gekregen van de gemeente Den Haag voor de realisatie van een reuzenrad. Het college van B&W is, net als De Pier, van mening dat het reuzenrad een originele vernieuwing is die de attractiviteit van Scheveningen-Bad aanzienlijk gaat versterken. Het reuzenrad wordt gerealiseerd op het eiland ten noorden van De Pier en opent naar verwachting aanstaand zomerseizoen zijn deuren voor het publiek. Het rad wordt ruim 40 meter hoog en zal 30 gesloten gondels tellen, die voorzien worden van comfortabele zitjes. In het reuzenrad kan worden genoten van het spectaculaire uitzicht en een hapje en drankje. Verder loopt de vergunningsaanvraag nog voor de realisatie van 13 hotelkamers op De Pier. Deze ‘rooms with a view’ komen dan op zowel het Zuidereiland als het Toreneiland. Voor meer informatie: www.pierscheveningen.com

Herman Smit, general manager van De Pier: “Uiteraard zijn we erg blij met dit besluit van de gemeente. Het reuzenrad is een geweldig mooie aanvulling op wat Scheveningen al te bieden heeft en we verwachten hiermee de aantrekkingskracht van de badplaats te kunnen versterken. Dat is ook de reden om direct te starten met de realisatie, zodat we het rad deze zomer letterlijk al draaiende hebben!” 

Facts & Figures reuzenrad

Het reuzenrad op De Pier wordt gerealiseerd door Skyview Attractions op het eiland ten noorden van De Pier. Het rad wordt ruim veertig meter hoog en zal dertig gondels gaan tellen. In de gesloten gondels, voorzien van comfortabele zitjes met tafeltjes en airco, kan naast het spectaculaire uitzicht worden genoten van een hapje en een drankje. Tegelijkertijd kunnen er vijf gondels worden in- en uitgelaten. Een rondje in het rad zal gemiddeld twee minuten duren. Een rit duurt ongeveer twintig minuten.

Aanvullende plannen

Naast het reuzenrad wil De Pier ook een Pop-up Hotel realiseren. Hierbij gaat het om 13 luxueuze en unieke hotelkamers. De vergunningsaanvraag hiervoor loopt nog. Op korte termijn is De Pier verder nog bezig met de sloop van het Staleneiland, waarvoor nog uitgebreid en noodzakelijk vooronderzoek plaatsvindt, en de realisatie van een extra trap naar het strand waarvoor reeds een vergunning is verleend.

Over De Pier

De Pier is sinds 18 juli 2015 weer open voor het publiek, nadat KondorWessels Vastgoed (VolkerWessels) en DanZep deze in oktober 2014 kochten. De vernieuwde Pier is inmiddels een ware foodboulevard, met een eigentijds en hoogwaardig aanbod van streetfood, restaurants, bars, terrassen en winkels. Op De Pier zijn daarnaast het hele jaar door festivals, culturele events, Pier markets, kidsmiddagen, educatieve activiteiten en muzikale optredens. De Pier is het hele jaar open en dagelijks toegankelijk vanaf 10.00 uur. De toegang is gratis. Voor meer informatie: www.pierscheveningen.com

Het feit dat onze huidige hotels in de randstad zo goed lopen heeft enorm bijgedragen aan de totstandkoming van deze financiering. We hebben zin in de bouwfase met onze partner Bakels en Ouwerkerk en zien er naar uit om het komend jaar in meer steden in de Benelux open te gaan en zo nog meer gasten kennis te kunnen laten maken met het easyHotel concept.”
