Work on Schiphol Trade Park began in 2018 with the preparation of the main infrastructure. Early in 2019, the first plots were issued to Necron and Delta Development/Volker Wessels. Necron intends to build an IntercityHotel with 200 rooms. Delta Development/Volker Wessels has purchased five hectares for building the Amsterdam Business Campus Square.
The IntercityHotel by Steigerberger is a 3/4-star hotel aimed at travellers going to and from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The building was designed by Suter + Renner and Rau Architecten. Amongst other sustainability elements, it will use a thermal energy storage installation, have solar panels and separate grey and black water, making it a great example for sustainable architecture. Construction is scheduled to begin in April and is expected to take approximately two years. In addition to the hotel, Necron will develop a ParkingHouse.
ABC Square will be a high-quality commercial building with 4-star BREEAM certification, built according to cradle-to-cradle principles. This project, too, fits in with Schiphol Trade Park’s ambition to become Europe’s most sustainable business park. Preparations are already in full swing. Construction will begin early in April and the project should be completed by the end of 2019. ABC Square will provide production and distribution spaces within one building, with representative showrooms and office space on Airborne Avenue.
Dick van der Harst of SADC, project director of Schiphol Trade Park, says: “We are highly ambitious in this area and have opted for circular area development. The enormous development of value that we are achieving more than compensates for the extra investments that we ask from our new companies and ourselves.”
Jeanet van Antwerpen, director of SADC, says: “We have put a lot of energy and creativity into the plans for Schiphol Trade Park to make it a leading international working environment. I’m glad that the first customers have recognised this and are setting up. SADC offers a warm welcome to the first ‘residents’.”
