Urban and innovative living by the waterfront

Amsterdam’s townhouses, waterfront buildings, floating homes and container living are trendsetters in developing urban living. The city expands to coasts and artificial islands.

Urban and innovative living by the waterfront

Amsterdam has grown around the old city onto harbor areas, filling sites and man-made islands. The maritime aspect of the new residential areas comes to life in a variety of measures. The new dense areas of Java, Borneo, IJBurg and IJDock have been built steadily on docks and man-made islands along the IJ waterway.

In residential building, Amsterdam can educate about townhouse construction, floating homes and container living. Residential building is broad-minded and innovative.

Amsterdam continues building among its historical constructions, residential areas, multi-functional buildings and schools. The former industrial estate of Amsterdam Noord is developing at a rapid pace. The areas nearby include creative spaces and offices, as well as an urban food court.  The landmark for the area is the sculptural EYE Film Museum.

The innovative Dutch architecture and urban planning provide excellent references to compact city planning that places emphasis on public transport and high-rise architecture. Throughout the country, great efforts have been made in rail transport and in creating modern, multifunctional neighborhoods around train stations. The development of city cycling in The Netherlands is one of the leading in the world. The Netherlands also display many interesting examples of refurbishment of the suburbs
