Amsterdam Zuidoost (South East) is growing into an energetic city district where living, working and leisure are quintessential. Amsterdam Zuidoost (South East) is currently being transformed into a bustling and modern mix of living, working, sports and entertainment. The area can be roughly divided into two areas, ArenApoort and Amstel III. Gaudi is located in the Amstel III area.
The residential area of Amsterdam Zuidoost (South East) is expanding. Old office buildings give way to a mixed and green urban district where working and living can be enjoyed together. Developers are currently working hard to create about 10,000 town houses.
Parklike areas for sport and recreation are planned along the railway track in places between the Johan Cruijff ArenA and Ikea. The layout of the area is such that it encourages walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
In the years ahead, ArenApoort will change into an entertainment area. By 2030, approximately 5,700 new homes will have been built. In addition, there are new facilities and functions, such as a city park, new squares and streets and many small shops.
Gaudi is located in a lively area where there is always something to do 24/7. Whether it's a mega concert by an international artist, an Ajax home match or an intimate dinner for two: it's all possible here. Here is but a small selection of the top locations in the area.
