New project Amstelwood in Amstelveen: from gas station to timber hybrid tower

21 November 2023

Amstelveen will soon have its first timber hybrid residential tower. The existing Esso gas station and the former car park on Ouderkerkerlaan will make way for Amstelwood: a nature-inclusive residential tower including 131 apartments and a commercial space on the ground floor, for example for a sports studio or small supermarket.

A contemporary residential tower of 16 floors, largely made of timber, will soon rise along the A9 highway. Amstelwood’s design combines aesthetics with ecological responsibility. Green areas on and around the building stimulate biodiversity and provide space for local flora and fauna. Furthermore, they act as a connecting element between existing ecological zones. By choosing natural materials, Amstelwood contributes to a healthy and comfortable living environment, with minimal impact on the environment.

Do Janne Vermeulen: “The Amstelwood project marks a neighborhood entrance and therefore offers opportunities for a noteworthy building. We hope to provide vibrancy in an area that is currently dominated by car traffic. It is a strategic place for densification and by increasing the height, more space is available for nature.”
