Amstel III is a large scale business park and office area in Amsterdam Zuidoost (the Southeast of Amsterdam) of approximately 250 hectares. It is situated between the Johan Cruijff ArenA, the Amsterdam UMC (university medical centre) location AMC, the rail line Amsterdam-Utrecht and the A2 highway. Metro stations Bullewijk and Holendrecht function as Amstel III’s gateways. The A9 highway runs through the centre of this area. Amstel III consists of two types of zones: a typical business park alongside the A2 highway where, amongst others, automotive companies are located, and a transformation area in the office zone. In the office zone, more houses are being built. No homes are to be added to the business park.

Redevelopments in Amstel III
Together with the ArenAPoort, Amstel III is the third working area of Amsterdam where 26,000 people come to work every day. There is almost 1.2 million m2 (square meters) of floor area for the building programme, 720,000 m2 of which are for offices. In 2015, more than 1,000 companies settled here in 120 buildings. A number of big businesses have established their (European) head offices here.
Since 2011 the Amsterdam municipality has joined forces with owners, users, developers and other parties to regenerate this area. In order to succeed, a shift is necessary to a multifunctional area where possibilities for living, working and recreation come together and where a better working- and living area prevails.
The future of Amstel III
The current business concept is to maintain the floor area for offices, addition of houses (5,000 student and residential houses up to 2027, 10,000 extra houses between 2027-2040), addition of (social) services, bars, restaurants and retail. But there will also be safe routes for cyclists and pedestrians and more green areas. The public space will mainly be reconstructed so it will match with a lively city district.
In the short term, the focus lies on supervising and guiding the transformations and demolition/new construction for the desired functions, coupled with significant concentration in an integral approach of the area. In the coming years, existing office buildings will be transformed into residential areas and new working/living concepts including redeveloping the surrounding public space so as to facilitate the new goal.
Interest in creating new houses has risen sharply as a result of the development of OurDomain by Greystar and Blauwhoed. In the meantime, project KARSP! (Wonam) is being built. Building of the projects SPOT (COD DUQER), Hettenheuvelweg 50 (Synchroon), Paasheuvelweg 17 (Camelot) and Trinity (Trinity Vastgoed) will start soon. In order to already add some vibrancy to the area, a brewery has started. There is also a nightclub with a large roof terrace.
