Work on VU University’s Research Building is progressing very rapidly, and the building’s highest point of 57 metres has now been reached. That means the initial phase of construction for this special building in the Kenniskwartier is now complete. One section of the building will be vibration-free.
Later in the year, construction work is expected to start on Well House, one of the world’s tallest wooden office towers. We talked to offices investment company NSI about the design, wooden construction, working in a post-Covid era and even about 'spekkoek' (a type of layered cake).
The new exterior of EDGE Stadium, former headquarters of Loyens & Loeff, is more or less complete. As a result, the characteristic copper heart of the building in Fred. Roeskestraat is suddenly behind a transparent façade.
The Amsterdam City Executive has approved the development plan for the area to the east of The Edge. This makes it possible to build housing, together with amenities and offices, set in a calm and green courtyard garden.
As the Research Building gradually becomes taller, Paul Goossens from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) explains how this building could play a key role in identifying a genuine Rembrandt and in the quest for new medical applications and energy sources.
Housing is to be built on the plot between the offices of AkzoNobel and Stibbe, the St. Nicolaaslyceum school and Kapel & Convict. The tender procedure for this plot was launched on 16 February 2022. Interested developers can submit proposals.
WTC’s Tower Ten has now reached such an advanced stage that the contractor is set to hand back the public space to the City of Amsterdam in May. So, what plans do we have for it? We will be adding a range of planting, widening the cycle path and making it an attractive place in which to spend time. We present an initial impression below.
After six months of demolition work, the contractor du Prie is now ready to start work on the new glass exterior of the Strawinskyhuis. The first plates of glass will soon be put into place. ‘It will be a radical transition – from dark and closed, to light and open.’
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.
With work now finished on the 2Amsterdam office tower, the transformation of one of the oldest buildings in Zuidas is complete. Although the former Twin Towers no longer both serve as offices, they still unmistakably form a single unit.
After a year of construction, the steel structure of EDGE Stadium – the former headquarters of Loyens & Loeff – is now as solid as a rock. This means that the finishing work on the new floors can now start, a key part of the building’s upgrade.
