Why a Vision?
Zuidas’s success as a business centre must be sustained. Yet, at the same time, 7,000 homes have to be added to the district and the level of amenities is steadily increasing. All this, while Amsterdam is preparing for one of the largest infrastructure projects in history: Zuidasdok. In the upcoming period our most important challenge will be to maintain and boost the quality of people’s living and working environments. The 2016 Zuidas Vision policy document sets out our goals and aspirations, grouped into various themes. This Vision is not an implementation plan. The Vision creates a focus and provides a framework within which we can steer a course for the further development of Zuidas.
While the 2016 Zuidas Vision policy document is all about spatial developments, buildings and amenities, the Leef Zuidas programme spotlights the area’s residents, users and visitors. The programme focuses on structural and inspiring activities that contribute to the area’s vibrant atmosphere. We are bringing the themes set out in the Vision to life through the events in the Leef Zuidas programme.
