On 15 September, 2022, we are joining forces with Het Concertgebouw and Festival Muze van Zuid to organise a free open-air concert. This is your opportunity to become acquainted with the work of several women composers, whose names will be used for new streets and squares in Zuidas.
After a period of restrictions because of coronavirus, the Rialto VU movie theatre is now well and truly in business. From 20 to 27 August 2022, it will be the main venue for World Cinema Amsterdam, the annual festival featuring international movies, many of them by young directors.
There are plans to build social rented housing on the former site of the British School Amsterdam (BSA) in Fred. Roeskestraat. Since this will take a while, we have temporarily relandscaped the area, making it a lot greener. Pupils from the Geert Groote College nearby could not be happier.
The former courthouse in Parnassusweg will soon be home to a museum of modern art. Until then, the building is being put to good use by artists. Dorette Evers has even transformed the two raised beds in front of the building into a paint garden.
In April, we held an information meeting about the restructuring work in the central section of De Boelelaan. The meeting focused on the draft design for the green section, the building of the art bridge and the new infrastructure. We promised to report on what was discussed.
Zuidas is much more than office blocks. Did you know, for example, that many public spaces in Zuidas are full of art? We have devised a walk that will show you 14 unique public works of art, and there’s even an audio tour to go with it. Try the Zuidas Art Tour today!
The summer holiday season is here – so let’s get into it! The Zuidas Summer Shack will open on Gustav Mahlerplein on 12 July 2022 and there will be so much to see and do. There’s a lot going on in the area over the summer. Come and find out more – learn, join in and have fun!
The restructuring work on Europaplein-Oost has been delayed by four months. We will also only be able to include 46 of the 55 parking spaces planned. The roots of some of the trees are too big, preventing us from paving the soil on top of them.
The design of the upgraded Wielingenstraat is now definitive. With a separate cycle path, optically narrowed lanes and a reduction in freight traffic, the street is set to become safer. A green central reservation will also give it a leafier look and feel.
The fifth and final AFC pitch has now been moved in a northerly direction. This completes the redevelopment of the sports park. It has created space for the new Ravel residential neighbourhood, where we will be building around 1,350 homes in the years ahead.
The establishment of a McDonald’s underneath The Gustav housing complex has not yet been completely ruled out. The environmental permit issued by the City of Amsterdam may no longer apply, but the fast food chain still has several other options.
It was a hot day. Whether you were on the roof, on the work site next to the A10 or between the railway tracks, or took part in one of the guided tours. But, despite this, there was a lot of interest in Dutch Building Day in Zuidas. Around 1,800 people came to take a look.
