The Erwtensoep FVC Construction on the satellite Visitors Center in the Erwtensoep District was completed on April 3rd, 2002. Designed by local Erwtensoep resident and shop owner, Vanderaap, the new structure looks to complement the Dutch architectural influences found throughout the District, while the renovation of the existing commercial block seeks to preserve its 1970s modernistic look. Together, the waterfront revival committee hopes to bring back both tourists and business interests - both of which have been missing from the waterfront area for almost twenty years. Surroundng new construction is evidence that this effort is on track for success. See below to download a souvenir copy of the facility and custom items.
