Why invest in Amsterdam City?
Amsterdam's City Ring zoneAmsterdam’s population is growing. Most of the 10,000 new inhabitants per year are students and highly trained professionals starting their careers. There is a substantial shortage of good quality yet affordable housing for this group.
This is why Amsterdam is building more than 10,000 residential units yearly. The focus of new developments is geared toward the Ring of residential districts surrounding the popular heart of the city. In the West, Northwest, South and East, new and exciting housing projects are under construction. More will follow. The often very imaginative projects are helping to upgrade the Ring districts and make them more attractive to the young and bright.
Amsterdam will continue to grow for the
next 20 years. A strong tradition of
innovation, creativity and broadmindedness keeps attracting young professionals. Amsterdam is a compact city, on a human scale: walk-able, bike-able and wide open to meeting people in public spaces, art centres and pubs. These qualities make the city highly successful and appealing to investors from all continents.
Amsterdam City in a nutshellThe steady influx of young and talented arrivals to Amsterdam has created a problem for the city. There is a substantial shortage in affordable housing for rent, especially in the middle ranges (rents of 700 - 1,000 euro per month). However, this problem creates interesting opportunities for investors in profitable residential real estate.
Amsterdam is accelerating the development and construction of quality apartments in the middle ranges. Investors in residential real estate with an eye for solid investment opportunities are actively invited to participate. Numerous projects are being developed, designed and built, from small-scale developments to grand new projects. Some 10,000 residential units are to be added yearly.
Amsterdam’s ‘Ring zone’ - the districts directly surrounding the historic heart of the city - contains the most interesting investment propositions. Here are most of the new projects, offering the best prospects of solid revenue and increased resale value. This zone is easily accessible, offers excellent infrastructure and is less than 10 minutes away from downtown Amsterdam.
In recent years, Amsterdam has prudently invested in infrastructure, cultural facilities and public spaces. A host of renovated parks, museums, waterfronts and a new subway line have improved the quality of urban life and increased the appeal of the city to companies and institutions. Prudent government has contributed to make the city even more attractive to young professionals, urban families and to investors with a vision.
