The city of Zaanstad is a part of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. The region is functioning as a magnet because of its diverse pallet of different living environments which varies from urban core to rural
periphery. Therefore there is a significant pressure in the housing market. To meet the additional demand for
housing the city of Zaanstad has to build a significant part of the 300.000 new houses which are needed
between now and 2040 in the AMA. We welcome partners to realize these ambitions.

To accommodate this growth:
- New city center of Zaandam: Over a 100 acres, 700 million of investments in a new canal, offices, a cinema,
shops and about 2,000 new houses.
- Amsterdam-ZaanIJ Waterfront: Miles and miles of waterfront connect the river Zaan with the river IJ to
downtown Amsterdam. This is a huge urban development project with numerous historical industrial sites where we develop about 7,000 new housing units.
