The municipal gas company, which was closed down in 1926, had grounds extending from Oostzeedijk up to Oudedijk. A number of housing projects were built here. But it was only years later that the polluted ground beneath them was cleaned up. Joining Carel Weeber's housing from the early 1980s is this complex of some 130 units in perimeter blocks. Concrete frames at the entrances and balconies and wood-framed fenestration lend variety to the exterior.
