Prestigious Houthaven project

From mid-2015, in the Houthaven of Amsterdam, the 90 m Pontsteigergebouw will be built. Vroom Foundation Technology has won the contract for the application of a total of 38 m of vibro piles. The execution will be carried out simultaneously with four rigs from a building pit in the IJ river. The construction will be realized by a developer’s combination consisting of Dura Vermeer and M.J. de Nijs en Zonen.

The prominent building will be built on top of the Pontsteiger from where the ferry to Amsterdam Noord departs. A total of 450 homes for rent and for sale will be built inside the modern city gate, and also various public facilities. The building’s design, in the shape of a gateway, comes from architectural agency Arons en Gelauff.


In the northern part of Spaarndammerbuurt in Amsterdam West, a neighbourhood is arising where people can live alongside the water: Houthaven. On seven green and car-free resident islands, a total of around 2,000 homes, over 70 house boats and facilities such as schools, hotels, restaurants, cafés and a healthcare centre will be realized. At the end of last year, the executive board of the city already agreed with the construction of the Spaarndammertunnel. With this tunnel, an important link between Spaarndammerbuurt and the new residential area Houthaven will be realized.
