Tripolis Park exterior façade almost complete

The transformation of Tripolis Park has reached an important phase. A year and a half after the start of construction, work is now underway on the exterior. It is turning out to be quite a puzzle. ‘The original complex has more than 1,700 different window frames, all of which we had replicated.’

Construction work starts on CROSSOVER in Kop Zuidas

The flowers growing rampant on the CROSSOVER plot have made way for steel columns, concrete, cranes and construction workers almost overnight. Work on the development of CROSSOVER, which will soon be home to businesses, young professionals and residence-permit holders, has begun.

British School makes way for housing

In April, the British School of Amsterdam (BSA) relocated from Fred. Roeskestraat to a new building in Havenstraat. We have been planning to build homes on the site in Fred. Roeskestraat vacated by the school for a long time. On 23 June this year, we had talks with the local community about this.

Construction projects

Amsterdam Zuidas is working with various developers and contractors to build a completely new city district. The work involves numerous individual building projects. In its early days, Zuidas was an office location for leading companies, now we want the area to be much more than that. It will be a full, unique neighbourhood where people can live, work, and enjoy recreational activities.

A new public space in Vivaldi. It will take a while, but will be worth it.

At the moment, the Vivaldi neighbourhood (between Vivaldistraat and Europaboulevard) is still seen as a stony and barren neighbourhood, even though the greenery is already starting to gain territory in some places. As part of our Green Loop ('Groene Lus') design, we are creating even more space for trees, plants and other green areas. To achieve this, we are reorganising the space between the buildings. By removing parking spaces and narrowing the traffic lane for cars (one-way traffic requires less space than two-way traffic), we will be able to add spacious green areas and make more room for pedestrians.

Court decision on Oldschool building

The City of Amsterdam municipal council wants to build homes on the site of the Oldschool building in Gaasterlandstraat, Kop Zuidas. To make room for the new homes, the Oldschool building will need to be demolished. Bond Heemschut, a heritage association, wants the building to be preserved because of its distinctive features, and therefore applied for the status of protected monument for the building. However, the municipality decided not to designate the building as a protected monument. The Bond Heemschut then appealed against this decision but on 9 July 2021, the courts ruled that the appeal was unfounded.

Start of tender process for OBA NEXT, bicycle parking facility and offices

The plans for OBA NEXT combine three big ambitions – a public library for the future, a public space at the heart of Zuidas that will contribute to cultural goals and a place where all residents of Amsterdam can improve their skills (including their digital skills). This is the essence of what we are asking participating parties to come up with in their development plans for Zuidas. Registrations opened on 15 July 2021.

Work on Europaplein tramlines

From Saturday, 17 July until Sunday, 15 August, GVB is replacing the track, the underlying concrete and the asphalt paving on the tramlines in Europaboulevard next to RAI Station and the A10 intersection. The quality of the tracks is no longer sufficient to ensure a safe and comfortable service to continue. The work is expected to cause some traffic disruption.

Come along and test the tiles

Starting now, Amsterdam Zuid station has become a test site for the natural stone tiles that will be used in the future station. We are testing different types of grey natural stone to see how they stand up to wear and usage over the next year.

Kop Zuidas construction and the need for green public space

In Kop Zuidas, buildings are being erected one after another. So, what can we expect the public space to look like in the near future? Is there any focus on the need for green areas in the neighbourhood? We have received questions about this from residents. The answer is this: green areas are particularly important, precisely because of all the building work.
