To ensure the presence and availability of offices in the city center, a co-creation process was started with various stakeholders.
- Shell: a very bare office where a lot still needs to be done
- Fully (high-end) completed: Can be occupied immediately after furnishing
- Plug & Play (furnished): Fully furnished and ready to be used right away
