The Conservatorium van Amsterdam music academy will not be setting up an annex in the monumental buildings known as Kapel & Convict in Beatrixpark after all. Prices on the construction and energy markets have increased so explosively that the financial risks are too great.
The central section of De Boelelaan, between Beethovenstraat and Parnassusweg, is being redeveloped, adding a new green section and bringing changes to the traffic situation. A meeting about it is being held on Tuesday, 12 April 2022, both in person (fully subscribed) and online.
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.
In the course of 2022, maintenance work will be carried out next to the RAI Exhibition Centre in order to make the area greener and safer. Following consultations with residents, parts of the design of Wielingenstraat and the Boerenwetering canal bank have been improved. The schedule has been adjusted accordingly.
The establishment of a museum of modern art in the former courthouse building in Parnassusweg will require changes to the zoning plan. An application has now also been submitted for an environmental permit. You can find out more on 15 February 2022.
The waste containers in Wielingenstraat are being replaced and immediately repositioned. At the moment, there are three containers in two different locations, but these will be replaced by five containers next to each other, between Eendrachtstraat and Krammerstraat.
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.
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?
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.
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.
