Fibonacci is being realized in the fast-growing district of Zeeburg/Oost, on the corner of Cruquiuskade and Panamalaan. From 1990 to 2010, Zeeburg was a district of the municipality of Amsterdam, with the neighborhoods of Indische Buurt, the Eastern Docklands, IJburg and Zeeburgereiland. On 1 May 2010, Zeeburg merged with Oost-Watergraafsmeer into the new Amsterdam-East district.
The development has a perfect location on the edge of the center of Amsterdam. The center and Amsterdam Central Station can be reached within 10 minutes by bike. In addition, it is very convenient to the main roads such as the ring A10 and highway A1, which are only a 10-minute drive away.
THE HISTORY OF ZEEBURG The former Zeeburg district was established in 1990. It owes its name to the Zeeburgerdijk and the Zeeburgereiland, which are located in the middle of the city district. The Zeeburgerdijk is named after the 17th-century fortress 'Seeburg'. The fortress was located along the dike that was part of the old dike along the Zuiderzee. This old dike connected Amsterdam with Muiden. Before the reclamation of the Watergraafsmeer, this was the only land connection with Naarden.
The area was built up when, from the end of the 19th century, the construction of the Eastern Docklands and the construction of the Indische Buurt started. Since 1 May 2010, Zeeburg has merged with Oost Watergraafsmeer into the new Amsterdam-Oost district. Although the neighborhood used to be classified as a problem area, the former harbor area has been transformed into a popular metropolitan living and working area. In recent decades, many new hip catering establishments have been added and existing buildings have been renovated. Various modern residential areas have also been developed and new residential buildings such as Fibonacci are being added. Because historical buildings have been preserved, a mix of old and new buildings has been created.
A FORMER NS PLOT
In the middle of this dynamic living and working area is the former NS plot where Fibonacci is being built. The plot is enclosed by the surrounding above-ground infrastructure; between the Panamalaan, the Cruquiuskade, and the railway. The zoning plan 'Residential Fibonacci' has now been established and the development process has started. The sketches have the character of a preliminary design, in which the old buildings on the plot partially make way for the new residential building. The expected delivery is mid 2022.
PRESERVATION OF DETERMINING CHARACTERISTICS Construction takes into account the characteristics of the plot, such as the surrounding above-ground infrastructure. The subsurface, the structure and layout also have some determining factors
characteristics. For example, the southeast corner of the fenced plot houses sections of track (traces) for underground infrastructure. This remains part of the public space.
In addition, NS will retain two important functions on the plot: a relay house and a rail deployment site. The relay house is located in the southwest zone of the plot and will remain in this location. Towards the northern point of the plot there is a driveway, with associated slope (an oblique plane along the driveway). The ramp was used to transport equipment for rail works. This rail inset position is retained in this position. The buildings that are still temporarily inhabited or used to date, are making way for the Fibonacci residential building
