The owner of WTC Amsterdam, CBRE Investment Management, is conducting a masterplan study on the long-term future structure of the entire WTC complex. This means that the extension work on towers A and B will not be happening, at least for now.
Again this year, we are conducting a survey on mobility in Zuidas, in partnership with the ‘Taskforce Bereikbaarheid’ (Accessibility Taskforce) and the ‘Van A tot Zuidas’ platform. We will use the results to improve the accessibility of Zuidas. Is this something that also matters to you? If so, be sure to complete the survey.
Next to the southern entrance to Valley, the first piece of Maurice Ravellaan is now in place. This avenue will be the access route to the new Ravel residential neighbourhood. A crossroads has now appeared where Mahlerlaan previously formed a T-junction with Beethovenstraat.
Starting on Friday, 19 November 2021, one lane for car traffic on the southern side and the southern cycle lane on De Boelelaan will be closed for at least six days, close to Antonio Vivaldistraat. This is because of urgent works.
Major maintenance work is expected to start in Wielingenstraat in July 2022. We have already sounded out local residents and users for their views on what should be done. These have now been incorporated in a provisional design that we will be happy to tell you more about on 11 October 2021.
Construction work has started on The Pulse, yet another incredible eyecatcher in Zuidas. Boasting housing, offices, a cinema, bars and restaurants, the building embodies what the Innovation Quarter (‘Kenniskwartier’) is set to become: a vibrant part of Zuidas and Amsterdam.
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.
Do you work in Zuidas and are you planning to work at the office more often after the summer holidays? And would you like to change your commuting habits so you don't end up sitting in traffic every day? Then why not try the third Zuidas Mobility Experience?
‘If anything is particularly complex, we always pitch for it.’ Architect Jeroen van Schooten, founder of Team V Architectuur, explains why they were so eager to work on the design for CROSSOVER and what challenges they faced.
