Grote Markt, eastside and Groninger Forum
The Grote Markt in Groningen will undergo major changes in the coming years. The work is already under way.
The facades of the buildings surrounding the Grote Markt will be modified to restore the pre-war building line. The parking garage along Naberpassage has been demolished; alternative parking will be provided in a new underground car park. This means there is space for a new city square and cultural hotspot: the Groninger Forum. The plans for the east side of the Grote Markt were an opportunity for the municipality to repair an historic blunder and restore this square to its former grandeur.
However, this major project will involve a considerable amount of construction traffic, which could hinder other traffic and cause congestion in the central city during some building phases.
