Roombeek is a commercial street located in the urban core of the district of Enschede in The Netherlands. I did a little digging and I learned that in 2000, the district suffered a huge tragedy when a fireworks warehouse explosion destroyed houses and streets, and left over 1200 people homeless. Project Reconstruction Roombeek was begun afterwards to restore confidence in the town.
Roombeek is also the name of the small stream which used to flow under the area. In 2005, the stream was restored to the surface and incorporated into the urban re-design of the district. It’s lovely.
