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.’

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.

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.
