HOW CAN TRANSFORMATORWEG CONTRIBUTE TO THE PRODUCTIVE CITY?
The municipality is seeking an inspiring architectural vision that can bring together the aspirations of the municipality, who intend to promote the creation of a new mixed-use neighbourhood, and the desires of the stakeholder, who intend to expand their building and in doing so, support increased multifunctional uses on the site. Design proposals for the public space should increase the attractiveness of the location, help foster synergies between education and entrepreneurship, and make visible the changes taking place in the area.
The site is located in Sloterdijk 1 development plan, an area in the eastern part of Amsterdam’s Port-City where in the long term, 40,000 homes will be built by 2040. The municipality wants to transform and convert this area into a coherent mixed-use urban district. Initially, the municipality is focusing on the area between Transformatorweg and railway tracks which will, over time, become a mix of living, working, educational and commercial facilities. The municipality wants to develop the area together with the existing owners and users. The first steps in this collaboration pro- cess has just started. 4,500 new homes will be realised in Sloterdijk 1 by 2025.
