A milestone for Tripolis Park: the exterior of the building is now more or less completed and all square metres of office accommodation have been let. The contractor is now working on the interior. In this, sustainability is a very important factor.
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.
The work to dismantle the temporary courthouse in Fred. Roeskestraat has started. In 2015, the building was one of the Netherlands’ first ever circular buildings. It is now one of the first practical examples of building reuse.
Construction work has started on De Puls, 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?
Anyone looking east beyond Gustav Mahlerlaan will see a trench, 10 m wide and 5 m deep, running alongside Valley. It is a new link in the planned loop system around Zuidas. ‘We’ll be creating some lasagne here.’
‘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.
This week, the trees were hoisted up onto the roof gardens on Terrace Tower. The additional greenery will make Zuidas more attractive to new businesses, boosting the City Council’s ambition to make the area more sustainable and greener.
The flowers growing rampant on the CROSSOVER plot have made way for steel columns, concrete, cranes and construction workers almost overnight. Work on the development of CROSSOVER, which will soon be home to businesses, young professionals and residence-permit holders, has begun.
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.
