Short description of the case study
Please note - there is limited information available about this case study

The Amsterdam Zuidas region is situated on both sides of the A10 South ring road between the Amstel and Schinkel rivers, and has the Zuid/WTC station in its centre.

The project area forms the connection between the attractive residential areas Zuid [Amsterdam South] and Buitenveldert in the ZuiderAmstel district. Thanks to its favourable location in relation to Schiphol Airport and the centre of Amsterdam, coupled with the short travel times due to the convergence of roads, trains, trams and buses, the Zuidas is a highly attractive choice for people and companies to situate their activities. The fact that the ABN AMRO and ING banks have chosen the Zuidas as the location for their head offices is a clear indication of the region's success.

What tools were used to assess sustainability?
