Located at the back of a warehouse in the Ostenburgereiland (Ostenburg Island) next to the dark glass INIT building where 3 newspaper companies are located.
The Ostenburg island was built in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company to establish shipyards and warehouses. These no longer exist in the area that is now undergoing redevelopment as a residential area.
The 65 x 22mt mural shows the connection of the area to the shipyard industry on one side and the construction business on the other side of the mural.
On the net I discovered it was painted in December 2017 by ASA artists: Beazarility, SjemBakkus, Sket185, IVES.one & Chinny Bond.
And this is the view I had of the mural from my daughter's apartment.

On my previous post about our visit to the Keukenhof Tulip gardens I mentioned the Lloyd Hotel and the mural on the side of the building about the emigrants that used to reside here from 1921 to 1936.
Here it is in more detail.
A Youtube video I found about the painting of the Oostenburg Mural.
