The Defense Island is a former military site that is being transformed into a residential area on the edge of the center in Woerden. The 2nd phase of the development is in full swing. In the re-development of the area, valuable industrial buildings are preserved and equipped with new functions such as housing and horeca. The island is being developed into a residential area with characteristic, sturdy buildings and a green character.
