Inspiring and green environment
The LBSP’s ambition is to transform into an attractive green and water-rich area. The density of the built-up area will increase while at the same time beautiful parks will be created and lots of greenery will be placed near the buildings and green spaces next to the paths and roads. Native tree species such as willow, ash, oak and birch are also planted. Together with the many water and natural banks, the park will have its own identity.
There are also more and more attractive residential areas that provide liveliness even after office hours. In the coming years, the supply of restaurants, shops and other amenities will increase significantly.
Leiden Bio Science Park was established in 1984 in the Leeuwenhoek area. The park was located between the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of Leiden University and the then Academic Hospital Leiden (now Leiden University Medical Centre). Over time, the municipality of Leiden decided to allocate the area primarily for biotechnology-related industry.
