Hello, I have recently visited the Zuidas as part of my Spatial Planning Masters course and was impressed by the architecture there. However, as a follow up to the visit, I am writing an essay that explores multiculturalism, diversity and equality in the context of Dutch Planning with particular reference to Zuidas and the Central Station. I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on this? Do you think that Zuidas is a place that stimulates multiculturalism? Can it act as a symbol of citizenship? Will the emergence of Zuidas force the historic centre to become 'disneyfied' or increase gentrification maybe?
Many thanks
Adam

If you like, you could make a topic of it here, the café of Amsterdam on SSC. You will get more respons there. Good Luck.

How should Zuidas support gentrification in the city-center? Houses in both areas are quite expensive, so this Zuidas won't attract just poor (or rich) families from downtown. The main reasons for the development of the Zuidas is in the first place the location between the historic center and the airport. The offices and apartments are still located in the prime city Amsterdam, but you can reach them easily by car, subway or train (in opposite of the downtown). The second reason is the protection of the old heritage and atmosphere in the citycenter. The offices are nice by themselves, but when you build towers like this in the center, the center will be destroyed completely.

The only negative aspect of the nearby airport is the height restrictions which is involved. But i think this leads to better architecture. It is not about the highest tower anymore, but about the tower with the most spectacular design. Just compare this this in Rotterdam (where are no restrictions) to this on Zuidas

There are some huge urban renewal projects going on in areas of the city where there are many immigrants. That might be a more interesting development in relation to multiculturalism and equality.

I think the Zuidas will mostly attract other westerners though. It'll be a place for large multinational corporations. Perhaps it could act as a symbol of citizenship if the area will be successfully integrated into the city. So that it will act as a new center for shopping, going out etc.

The historic center is already gentrified, as well as the area between the Zuidas and the historic center. I don't think that'll change much. I view the Zuidas more as an expansion of the city center, the Zuidas itself is the increased gentrification.

Is Zuidas an office-only district or will there be other uses such as retail?

The Zuidas is now mainly an office district with some bars, restaurants, retail and apartments. In the next 10-15 years mostly apartments will be build and a high-end retail area (Ravel). More and more the base will be big enough for more retail. In the center location (Zuidasdok) it really depends on both the government and market if, how and when the infrastructure will be brought under the ground for even more offices, apartments and retail.

I wish the Zuidas stayed as a business district-only. In any case, it is an amazing area, highest concentration of interesting high-rises in Europe.

Too bad it already lacks decent (easy + cheap) parking space.

Does anyone have news on the buildings u/c?

If the A10 Highway is tunnelled, then should all or part of the Amsterdam Zuid rail station be underground, especially to make potential space for new highrises?

The plan is to move it completely underground. However, I doubt we will see it realized anytime soon.
