“Update Koningsoord shopping mall” challenge

Dear Readers,

Hope you are doing well! Are you willing to participate in Map Creator challenge? 😏 We prepared something for you!😁

New shopping mall 🗺

We heard that a new shopping mall in Berkel-Enschot is going to be build. It will be called Koningsoord and will replace the old shopping mall – Eikenbosch. The assumption is that plenty of shops from the old shopping mall will be replaced to the new location of the Koningsoord shopping mall.

As the new shopping mall plan is still in development, we have plenty of time to update some information about POI’s and geometry surrounding this place. What we know is that the location of the new shopping mall Koningsoord will be in new location.

So..do you know Berkel-Enschot? Or maybe you live there or visited this place? 😏

Even if the answer is no, are you willing to help not only us but also all the future visitors of this upcoming shopping mall? 😃 If the answer is yes, we kindly ask you to…
