MVA neighbourhood information: Houthavens

Houthavens is the area where cargo-vessels from all over the world used to unload their timber. Nowadays this area is becoming an appealing island neighbourhood where people can live near water. The Houthaven is located at the northern part of the Spaardammerbuurt. The Houthaven is transformed from business area to a special residential area on seven green islands at the IJ. This area is part of the intentions of the community to change the IJ-shores from industry to residential area.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
