The area between Kapel & Convict and the AkzoNobel and Stibbe buildings and the St. Nicolaaslyceum will be given a new layout in the next few years. The preliminary design for the public area is now ready. It is set to be green and park-like.
Kenniskwartier (Knowledge District) is developing fast. VU Campus is being regenerated, around 2,700 homes are set to be built and there are new amenities and green areas under development along with a thriving centre for research and education. All of this in what will soon be an amazingly accessible location.
The City of Amsterdam Executive is opting for a new approach to city development. Densification will feature prominently in it, including in Zuidas. This is revealed in the development strategy ‘Building neighbourhoods for the future’ (‘Bouwen aan buurten van de Toekomst’) that is based on diversity in the city.
Plans for Kop Zuidas to have a residential care centre for former homeless people on plot K will not go ahead. For the centre to be affordable, at least 30 housing units were needed. There is not sufficient space for that. The tender procedure for the plot will be in the second quarter of 2024.
The broad contours of the second passageway at Amsterdam Zuid station became visible. The existing passageway was also renovated. Numerous construction projects were completed. We also put together a great summer party. All of that – and much more – was 2023 in Zuidas.
Zuidas is working on plans for the Verdi neighbourhood, part of which includes the northern zone of IJsbaanpad. This is being given a new use. From 9 November 2023, the draft zoning plan that will make this development possible is open for consultation.
Starting in 2024, Zuidas intends to begin working with a general permit (‘koepelvergunning’) to cover all works related to water. This general permit will make it possible to gain permission for a large number of water-related works in the whole of the Zuidas area all at once.
In Zuidas, we are building quite a lot of construction pits, often surrounded by steel sheet pile walls. But not all these walls are the same. The method used to drive a sheet pile into the ground can also vary according to the location. We take a look at how it all works.
On the site of the former temporary courthouse at Fred. Roeskestraat 55, there are plans to develop a building with offices and housing. The draft zoning plan for this development is now open for consultation until 18 October 2023. A walk-in evening has been scheduled for 21 September.
The evening of Saturday, 5 August 2023 marks the start of the closure of the A10 Zuid, in the direction of Utrecht and Hengelo. If you’re interested in finding out about what’s happening, why not come and take a look at the works at Amsterdam Zuid station. You can even take part in one (or more) of the other activities.
Starting on 20 July 2023, the Zuidas Zomer Keet (Zuidas Summer Shack) will be back in Gustav Mahlerplein. In it, we’ll tell you all about the summer works at Amsterdam Zuid station, but there’s also much more: guided tours, workshops and tuktuk rides. Make sure you don’t miss it!
A lot of construction work is taking place between Amsterdam Zuid station and Prinses Irenestraat. In the upcoming period, there will also be works in and around the station. On 3 July 2023, we are organising a walk-in meeting at the Thomaskerk to update you on what is happening.
