Amsterdam Houthaven: a new part of the city
Many people prefer to live in the city, at a park and on the water. That seems impossible, but it is possible in Houthaven! Houthaven is a unique part of Amsterdam, here were the harbors where timber was supplied daily a century ago, hence the name.
Memeleiland, Houthaven is centrally located in Amsterdam, 2 kilometers as the crow flies from Central Station and only a five-minute drive from the A10 ring road. It is the new-build location in Amsterdam.
Low-traffic and very child-friendly. Here you can play on the street again.
It is not finished yet, but there is already a lot; two primary schools united in one building (De Spaarndammerhout and Onze Amsterdamse School) a secondary school (the 4th gymnasium), a day care center, a playgroup, a care center, a dentist and animal practice, a gym, nice restaurants such as Karaat, Vessel Kitchen & Bar, Pont 13 and REM island and cafes including Bar Hout. Many shops can be found in the nearby Spaarndammerstraat and Haarlemmerstraat. Numerous creative companies have already established themselves in the area.
The beautiful buildings are situated on the IJ and the Houthavenpark. The main characteristics are formed by a rich image that arises from a series of different buildings with a recognizable appearance. Really contemporary Amsterdam living, with the quality of today: climate neutral and completely according to the wishes of the future resident.
Where at the beginning of the last century the tree trunks were waiting in the water for further processing for the Amsterdam housing, a new residential area Houthaven has been built there. Seven islands are created in the water, which are interconnected by bridges. The plan area of ??26 hectares will be filled with approximately 3,000 homes, 70 houseboats and 50,000 square meters of non-residential construction. In terms of architecture, there is a strong relationship with historic Amsterdam: The variation in facades for which Amsterdam is so famous can also be seen in a modern way in Houthaven.
100% climate neutral
A special feature of the Houthaven is that the district will be 100% climate neutral. Residual heat from the waste incineration plant is used to heat the houses. In addition, every home will soon have a connection for "comfort cooling": water from the IJ will keep the homes cool in the summer months.
There are also solar panels and windmills to generate energy, for example for charging the electric car. By the way, that car is not parked on the street, but underground. It will be a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly area.
The Houthaven is a port along the IJ in the western port area of ??Amsterdam. On the north side the harbor is bordered by the breakwater in the IJ, on the south side by the Spaarndammerbuurt. The port is mainly used by inland shipping. This business area has changed radically. An entirely new residential area has been built on seven artificial islands.
The harbor consists of four parts. Oude Houthaven, Houthaven, Nieuwe Houthaven and Minervahaven. Together they are also called the Houthavens. The Houthaven was dug in 1876, simultaneously with the construction of the North Sea Canal, for the transhipment and storage of timber. It was the first dug harbor in Amsterdam. Because timber was increasingly transported by road, the ports of entry were filled in 1945.
Before 1945, all timber trade established in the area around Tasmanstraat and Spaarndammerstraat had the address Houthaven. After the Second World War, the street name Houthaven was discontinued and the current street names were introduced, including Rigakade, Archangelkade, Danzigerbocht, Gevleweg, and Stavangerweg.
