Their goal is to bring the local residents, businesses and government together to create attractive city spaces. The "wasted spaces" are to be transformed into commercial ventures that enhance the area, bringing diversity and creativity, as well as providing employment opportunities.
So what is a "wasted space"? The criteria is as follows:
- The space is publicly owned or owned by a private person interested in leasing out or selling the space.
- There is commercial potential so that the refurbishment can be financed through future income from renters or businesses.
- It is possible to get a building and/or other necessary permits from the municipality and other government departments to operate the activity in that space.
- They can find partners and sponsors who are willing to invest in the space.
