Zuidas is developing into a rather special Amsterdam city district, where it is pleasant to spend time, work and to live. This development is happening fast. In the years ahead, we are building thousands of homes in Zuidas, for people across the income scale.
Increasing numbers of homes
Although Zuidas was always intended to be a residential district, the main focus was initially on employment. The Zuidas vision document published in 2016 (Vision Zuidas 2016, summary pdf) gave an additional boost to Zuidas as a place to live (while also boosting vibrancy, sustainability and accessibility). Since then, many new homes have been built and new residents have arrived. Over the next ten years, we are building at least 7,000 homes in Zuidas, which will make the neighbourhood even more vibrant.
