Strengths
  • Restructuring and re-empowering of a town district is connected with start-up support for fashion designers (work, living and shop space)
  • Trying to keep creative talent in the city.
Weaknesses
  • Big investment needed for assets and refurbishment of buildings.
Opportunities
  • Urban development and economic development create a joint, concerted policy strategy.
Threats
  • Negative real estate market development, big financial risk
  • Positive real estate market development: rents are rising and fashion designers are pushed out of the neighbourhood
