“As part of its Project 1012, an effort to ‘clean up’ the city’s famous Red Light District, Amsterdam’s city government has already teamed up with private enterprise to replace a number of bordellos with studio space for fashion designers.

[…] the city has collaborated with real estate company De Key […] in a new project designed to accommodate sculptors, painters, and other visual artists.” (source)
