A weekly market in Zuidas will be held for the first time on Thursday 2 September. There will be 16 market stalls on Gershwinplein to begin with, offering mainly food products. Amsterdam Zuid district council will examine whether the market is a success after 18 months.
The branch of McDonald’s planned for the ground floor of The Gustav residential complex is in doubt. A court has ruled that residents have not been kept adequately informed by the fast food chain, and they are therefore entitled to stop McDonald’s from opening in their building.
From 2 September 2021, Thursday will be market day in Zuidas. Up to thirty market stalls, with a focus on food, will then be offering their fresh produce in Gershwinplein. The market will run for an initial 18-month trial period.
Residents of The Gustav are refusing to accept the McDonald’s branch set to open in the commercial space (ground floor) of the apartment complex. The owner of the commercial space is taking legal action against the residents. The case recently came to court.
