Living in the residential tower will offer a tranquil living experience in the heart of Overhoeks. Whether it is a walk in the park, a cup of coffee along the IJ waterfront, a movie in EYE, a cocktail in the sky bar, a workout in the gym or a bit of relaxation in the wellness centre – it is all for the taking.

Location

FRONT-ROW VIEW OF CITY’S HISTORIC NEIGHBOURHOODS

Overhoeks, the Northern part of Amsterdam along the IJ waterfront, is turning into a lively neighbourhood with a beautiful skyline of international allure. The project is imbedded in a creative and cultural area of arts, music and multimedia professionals. It is often referred to as one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the world.

With the arrival of the eye-catching EYE Film Institute; the Tolhuistuin; the transformation of the former Shell headquarters building into A’DAM (the epicentre of electronic and dance music); the NDSM shipyard turned into a glitzy industrial beehive; plus all the emerging new bars and restaurants, Amsterdam’s northern half has become the talk of the town. The New York Times recently called the area, the “red-hot art neighbourhood” and Amsterdam’s new creative centre.

CENTRAL LOCATION

As Overhoeks is connected to the southern side of Amsterdam by free ferries, the Central Railway Station with all its public-transport links is located just 5 minutes away. The Noord/Zuidlijn metro connection, which will link up the southern and northern halves of Amsterdam, will be completed in 2017. The new metro station will be just a ten-minute walk away. Due to this visitors and residents can use the public transport instead of cars and taxi’s. Getting to the city’s international airport takes just less than half an hour. In addition, a sophisticated mobility concept guarantees the minimum possible impact of noise and traffic.

The unique buildings are located right at the heart of Overhoeks with:

  • a cup of coffee directly at the entrance
  • a cocktail in the sky bar directly in the hotel
  • a movie at EYE just a one-minute walk away
  • the park to relax closed-by
  • the historical centre to be reached within 10 minutes of walking
  • the Central Railway Station just 5 minutes away
  • Schiphol Airport, which can be reached within 25 minutes by public transport

MODERN – GREEN – METROPOLITAN – CENTRAL

BUILDING PHILOSOPHY

All (building) partners attach great importance to sustainability. Every design decision carefully weighs sustainability and environmental considerations. A green roof will not only provide a great experience for its users, but also provide energy-saving benefits.

ARCHITECTURE

Team V is famous for its modern architecture that connects buildings to the places they belong. Overhoeks is Amsterdam’s most creative area of Amsterdam, known for its inspirational feel and creative spirit. The new project will embody that spirit through its functions. Materiality, structure, form and detail will become the vehicles to impart the messages of the buildings and make them into a timeless gift to the city.

MISSION

All partners are dedicated to beautifying the skyline of Amsterdam. Ultimately, it will be the experience within the buildings that will continue to intrigue long after the buzz fades. The new hotel and housing concept will be a place where everyone, be they residents or visitors, will feel right at home, bringing unique and warm lasting memories.

NEW SKYLINE

The skyline of Amsterdam will be enriched with two iconic buildings along the IJ waterfront. Together with the City of Amsterdam, the partners are working hard to further develop and position Overhoeks as the city’s signature area. The project will give a huge boost to both its own area and the wider city.
