Eleven plane trees return home to Valley

Construction projects

Amsterdam Zuidas is working with various developers and contractors to build a completely new city district. The work involves numerous individual building projects. In its early days, Zuidas was an office location for leading companies, now we want the area to be much more than that. It will be a full, unique neighbourhood where people can live, work, and enjoy recreational activities. Read all about it.

Laying the groundwork for the new Ravel residential area

The word ‘avenue’ probably conjures up an image of tall trees and elegant houses. The newest avenue to be created in Zuidas – Maurice Ravellaan – still has a long way to go before it looks like that, but the first work has already begun. Ravellaan will be the principal road serving the new Ravel residential area.

Tripolis complex recognized as protected monument

It seems that Aldo van Eyck was ahead of his time when he designed Tripolis. Initially, in 1994, his light, open spaces were not particularly popular. These days, they are exactly what companies are looking for, and so this protected monument is getting a second lease of life.

Plans to expand WTC Amsterdam

Zuidas and CBRE Global Investors are working on a feasibility study for a possible new development to the south of the WTC, in Mathijs Vermeulenpad. In addition to the plans for Tower Ten, the WTC complex itself may also be expanded.

Investment plan for Verdi residential area officially adopted

On 31 March 2021, the City of Amsterdam adopted the investment plan for the second sub-section of the Verdi neighbourhood. A new residential area will be created on the site of Sporthallen Zuid, and the sports facilities will be moved to a new multi-storey structure.

Rainbow staircase to Zuidplein unveiled

The rainbow staircase, connecting Zuidplein and Strawinskylaan to each other, was officially unveiled on 31 March 2021. This means that Zuidas has another landmark, one that aims to boost the visibility and acceptance of the LGBTIQ+ community.
