The maritime district always has a connection with water, situated between the Erasmus and Willems bridge and the shores of the river Meuse. Once the area consisted of a succesion of small ports, in which a busy trading business existed. Slowly Rotterdam traded the river for the sea and the main port slowly moved West. Rotterdam had ambitious plans in the eighties with the former port areas, including the Maritime District. The area between De Boompjes, Leuvehaven and Blaak was supposed to dedicate itself to water recreation and tourism. More than 30 years later this part of the city has regained its interest. With many new building projects being realized at the moment, the Maritime District will change completely. In new designs for the district there is still lots of attention for optimal use of water areas, so the river will finally form a substantial part of the neighborhood.
