Do you have ideas for improving Zuidas and making it more attractive? If so, they could actually become a reality. You have the rest of September to apply for a financial contribution to make your idea happen. This is all thanks to the Neighbourhood Budget ('Buurtbudget') 2021.
The residents of Verdi, the westernmost neighbourhood of Zuidas, have heard a lot of talk about a greener Verdi. What exactly we mean by that is outlined in the Verdi Green Plan (‘Groenplan Verdi’). On 28 September 2021, we will be telling you all about it during a walk. Would you like to join us and take part in the conversation?
Two new housing complexes are set to be built behind the AkzoNobel, Stibbe and the St. Nicolaaslyceum buildings. To enable construction to happen, we are creating a site access road starting on Monday, 13 September 2021. It will be used for work on the Kapel & Convict site.
Goed Genoeg, the new public sports park, and the new AFC clubhouse were officially inaugurated on Saturday 4 September 2021. The sports fields have been moved slightly to the north to make room for new houses in the residential district of Ravel.
A weekly market in Zuidas will be held for the first time on Thursday 2 September. There will be 16 market stalls on Gershwinplein to begin with, offering mainly food products. Amsterdam Zuid district council will examine whether the market is a success after 18 months.
The construction consortium Nieuw-Zuid (Mobilis, Boskalis and Van Gelder) has been awarded the contract for modernization and expansion work at Amsterdam Zuid station. The first phase of the contract was signed on 26 August.
Three new artificial grass pitches have been laid at SC Buitenveldert football club this summer. The club is located between Mahlerlaan and De Boelelaan, and its old pitches were worn out. ‘We’ll be able to use these new pitches for many years to come’, said board member Paul Rijnierse.
We have some news about the latest cultural event to be happening in Zuidas: in early November, the VU Rialto Cinema will be opened in the New University Building on De Boelelaan. Would you like a sneak preview? Then why not come to the World Cinema Amsterdam film festival, between 26 and 28 August 2021?
Last weekend (21-22 August 2021), we took a major step in the construction of the second pedestrian passageway underneath Amsterdam Zuid station. The work involved installing two enormous concrete roof sections into place for the new passageway. Everything went like clockwork.
The preparatory work has been completed. Two concrete structures, weighing a total of more than two million kilogrammes, have been lifted out of their formwork and moved several centimetres to test whether everything is in order. The result: the real work can now begin in earnest.
