Zuidas is the international urban knowledge and business hub of Amsterdam near the city centre. From Schiphol International Airport you can be in the heart of Zuidas within seven minutes by train. About 750 national and international companies are already based in the area. Just as one of the Netherlands’ largest universities and a prestigious university medical centre. With about 9,000 homes in the future, Zuidas will be Amsterdam’s second most prominent housing location with shops, restaurants and cultural activities. In 2019 project Zuidasdok has started. This involves among other things, expanding Amsterdam Zuid train station and widening the A10 motorway, partly underground. The objective is to improve traffic flow and allow new urban development.
