In the case of "Huidenclub" Rotterdam, it's an art space calling itself “a bottom-up non-institution” that does “self assemble and strategically address societal and ecological justice”.

In Rotterdam-Delfshaven, the real estate development companies Dura Vermeer & Dudok Groep are turning a former factory territory into a new upmarket housing complex as part of the larger Merve-Vierhaven real estate development/gentrification project.
