Great news for Zuidas and the city: on 8 July 2021, the City Council approved the zoning plan for the Zuidas – Ravel residential neighbourhood. The plan will enable the development of a new, leafy family neighbourhood in Ravel, with 1,350 homes, 750 of which will be suitable for families.
In 2024, the Kindercampus Zuidas childcare centre is moving to a brand-new building in the new Ravel residential neighbourhood. As a result, the primary school and childcare facility is set to take on a real community function. ‘We still want to have a place where we can continue to build huts.’
If everything goes smoothly, the City Council will officially approve the zoning plan for the new Ravel residential district in the summer of 2021. We have held talks on several occasions with businesses, employees and residents nearby in order to take their ideas on board as much as possible.
Kindercampus Zuidas education centre has been allocated a new site in the future Ravel residential district. This has been agreed between the Public Education Foundation Stichting Openbaar Onderwijs aan de Amstel and the City of Amsterdam. It marks the first step in setting up the school in the new district.
The draft zoning plan for the ‘Zuidas-Ravel residential district’ has been open for consultation since 24 December 2020. Ravel will be a new residential district with around 1,350 homes. Work is set to start in 2022. The consultation period lasts until 3 February 2021.
Zuidas will soon have a new residential neighbourhood: Ravel. Construction is set to start at the end of 2022, but there have been years of preparation leading up to that. As project manager, Monique Soe-Agnie has been very closely involved.
Starting in 2022, a new green, car-free neighbourhood called Ravel will be created in Zuidas, providing 1,350 homes. Most of these will be relatively large, and in the social rental or mid-range rental sectors. They will be located in a park-like setting, with plenty of space for play and recreation.
