The current mix of industry and retail around Klaprozenweg in Amsterdam-North will make way for a residential and work area with 2,000 homes on an area of ​​approximately 250,000 m².

The current local residents, because there are hardly any residents, were given free rein in the design of the new district by the municipality and were assisted in this by BETA architects, who have an office on the edge of the area.

Architects collaboration
 BETA's Augutse van Oppen, together with architect Tjeerd Haccou from Space & Matter and landscape architect Hannah Schubert from B + B, made the area design and submitted it to the municipality. He judged positively.

Retail in baseboards
 The plan is to realize various buildings of different levels with space for greenery, squares and terraces in between, reports the local media. In addition, some towers of approximately 50 meters high will be built. The retail currently present in the area will be housed as much as possible in the plinths of the buildings and the distribution station of TenneT will undergo a metamorphosis.
