Residential tower Kenniskwartier plot 2D, Amsterdam South Axis
Kenniskwartier lot 2D is located on De Zuid-as on the Gustav Mahlerlaan in Amsterdam. Commissioned by Woonstichting De Key, LEVS architects made a design for the realization of a 70-80 m high social residential tower. Pieters Bouwtechniek is the structural engineer.
The tower contains 216 social rental homes for starters up to the age of 28. In addition to housing, the program also includes some communal facilities in the plinth. The apartment building has no basements, has a footprint of approximately 24.4 × 23.0 meters and has between 20 and 23 storeys.
The starter apartments will be located on the currently empty site opposite the VU and SC Buitenveldert football club. An area with a lot of knowledge-intensive activity and where a new residential area with 2,700 homes is planned.
It is precisely in this part of Zuidas that De Key wants to develop starter apartments. It is part of a new neighborhood where a total of 2,700 homes will be built with associated facilities such as a theater, catering, supermarket and primary school. The Campus of the VU, the AUMC, and many startups and scaleups around 'health, life and science' are also located in this area. South station is within walking distance.
The starter apartments are expected to be completed in 2024.
