In the short term, Almere is developing a mixture of homes, shopping, work and recreational facilities. Thanks to the A6 exit and the railway and bus stations, the location is easily accessible from Amsterdam, the Gooi and Utrecht. The area is located near a luxury marina, golf course, horse-riding centre and various sports facilities. Several educational institutions, including international schools, are located in Poort Oost. Nature is close by, in the form of lakes, urban forests and the Oostvaardersplassen.
There are several development opportunities for homes in various price ranges, businesses (the Hogekant business park), offices, and leisure, retail and catering facilities.
The development plan has been established and is being incorporated into a zoning plan. The location is largely ready for construction.
