Zuidas – literally, the “southern axis” – is an area located on the outskirts of the vibrant city of Amsterdam, only minutes away from one of Europe’s leading international airports: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
With its high concentration of businesses, public institutions and housing, this is a dynamic new part of our capital. Already a high-profile international business district and a centre of research and education, Zuidas is now evolving into a fully-fledged urban hub – a prime international location for living, working and recreation.
A significant number of our ambitions for Zuidas have already been realized: It is a dynamic working and living environment, with plenty of amenities ensuring both comfort and relaxation. Zuidas will continue to develop in the decades to come.
Zoning plans are in the making, more land is becoming available for development, new buildings are being planned or are under construction and public spaces are being redesigned. In 2019 work will start on the most important infrastructure project in the entire Amsterdam Metropolitan Area: Zuidasdok. This project is intended to improve the accessibility of Zuidas and the entire northern Randstad, by both road and public transport.
