Abstract

As de-industrialisation has left factories vacant and urban living is gaining popularity, redeveloping a former industrial area offers cities a unique residential environment. In order to get insights in the motives of people
moving to these areas, this research has studied residents of case study area Strijp-S, their motives of moving there and their lifestyles. Former Philips territory Strijp-S has already been partly redeveloped into a mixeduse creative and culture district and this has been successful as is has been awarded a prestigious prize (NRP Gulden Feniks, 2013) and has become a popular place to live. This study collected data from the residents of
Strijp-S. The results of the data collection showed that the main group of Strijp-S residents are young, highly educated singles and couples. Furthermore, a large group moved to this neighborhood from their parental or student homes and thus can be considered as 'starters'. Based upon the activity pattern items from Frenkel, Bendit and Kaplan (2012), four types of lifestyles were discovered: Mellow Morgan, Enthusiastic Elliott, Racing Riley and Sporty Sam. While culture was one of the factors, the lifestyles found in this research mainly distinguished themselves by their attitude towards sport and work. Finally, when examining the motivation of people to move to Strijp-S, it is remarkable how many of the respondents (around 70%) looked
for dwellings only in this neighbourhood. In particular, the distance to the city centre and the image of StrijpS as a creative neighborhood were mentioned to be of importance. Furthermore, residents with a Racing
Riley lifestyle and part-time workers tend to choose this neighbourhood for its characteristics and focus less on the dwelling characteristics. So where some studies tend to focus on dwelling characteristics, this research
shows that environmental characteristics including the activity types should be taken into account when redeveloping an industrial heritage area. Furthermore, the marketing of the area is important, as the image of
Strijp-S as a neighbourhood was often mentioned to be of importance when choosing to move there.
