New Amsterdam city district Strandeiland will have about 8,000 homes, a beach and a nature bay
January 1st 2019

A new city district with about 8,000 homes, a beach and a natural bay. That will be Strandeiland, in Amsterdam-IJburg. Strandeiland is the fifth island of IJburg and will be one of the largest new districts in Amsterdam. The realization will start in 2022, that is the intention. Information about the plans is available in a new information center on IJburg, which has recently been opened.

Strandeiland: a city district with a beach of 750 meters

The municipality of Amsterdam reports this. The district will have a city beach of about 750 meters in length. There will also be a nature bay. The head of the island, on the east side ('Oosterend'), will have a high quay wall. A pedestrian promenade will be built under that quay wall. Here you will soon be walking along the water of the IJmeer. A harbor basin will be built on the west side, with restaurants and shops, among other things. These facilities are also easily accessible for the current inhabitants of IJburg. The plans for Strandeiland also include space for other facilities, such as primary schools, a secondary school, sports fields (football, hockey, tennis and urban sports) and a swimming pool.

Spacious streets that open onto a park or the water

On Strandeiland you live on spaciously laid out streets that open onto a park or the water. The buildings will not be very high. In the northern part of the district (the Pampusbuurt), the buildings are on average five floors. In the southern part (the Muiderbuurt) the building blocks have an average of three floors. Between the two neighborhoods lies the Oog, a water feature that is suitable for fishing, boating or possibly swimming. But you can of course also sit comfortably on the quay. Watch a video about Strandeiland here:

Beach island: 8,000 homes, 40 percent of which are in the social sector

Of the approximately 8,000 homes on Strandeiland, 40 percent will fall in the social rental sector. A quarter are homes in the so-called middle segment. The remainder, 35 percent, concerns more expensive owner-occupied and rental properties.

Emission-free, energy-yielding and rain-resistant

Special about Strandeiland is the high level of sustainability. The intention is for the neighborhood to become emission-free and to provide energy. The high energy performance is partly due to numerous solar panels and heat recovery from waste water. Green roofs and 'open streets' (with a lot of planting in the middle) also ensure good collection of rainwater. As a result, the district will also be rain-resistant.

Beach Island: half an hour from Amsterdam Central

All this beauty will arise from 2022 on not too great a distance from the center of Amsterdam. With tram line 26 you will soon be at Amsterdam Central Station from Strandeiland within thirty minutes.

New information center, open daily

The arrival of Strandeiland, but also the many other construction activities on IJburg, is reason for the municipality to open an information center on IJburg again. This information center is located in Lolaland, at Pampuslaan 501 in Amsterdam. It is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm and on weekends from 11am to 5pm. From January onwards you can go there on Thursday afternoons with questions during the consultation hour of the environment manager.
