On the surrounding area

Caland Dock is situated in the suburb Laakhaven-West, located nearby the centre of The Hague, various highways, station Hollands Spoor, The Hague University of Applied Sciences, various businesses and a substantial offer in fun hotspots. 

Originally, this part of The Hague was a docking and industrial area. Nowadays, it has been transformed into a modern, contemporary neighbourhood with a lively character and ample room for living, relaxation and work.

Caland Dock is quickly reached with the car via the highway. This will only improve when the Rotterdamse Baan (new part of the highway) is finished around the end of 2020.

As Station Holland Spoor is located not even 1.5 kilometres away, there are plenty of possibilities to travel with public transport.

Laakhaven-West is quickly evolving into an easily accessible suburb, where living and working merge. An example for the urban multi-functional suburbs of the future. Many of the old office buildings have been demolished, with some of the more characteristic industrial buildings being retained. They, together with two restored authentic harbour cranes, the area is given a bold ambiance. The dock offers space to catering businesses with outdoor spaces situated alongside the water, as well as to other retail shops. It is very well possible that a marina will be actualised in the near future as well.
