The area northeast of the Plantage was the stomping ground of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), which grew rich on sea trade in the 17th century. The VOC owned this 500m row of warehouses – the largest storage depot in Europe at the time – located in a customs-free zone.

Some of the original facades have been preserved, and the facility has been converted into desirable offices, apartments and appealing dockside cafes, with tables perfect for lazing away an afternoon at the water's edge.
