Ravel Parkside is a detailed part of the entire Zuidas materplan. The Ravel vision is to create a new urban area with a mixed use of high-end retail, exclusive hotel, housing, offices, a school and a central public building. The area is situated in the eastern part of the Zuidas area, 4km to the south of central Amsterdam.
The location offers an excellent opportunity to create a new high quality borough in context with the financial district located at the rim of a park, intergrating both the urban and park environment, to create a suburban middle ground suitable both for residential buildings and commercial offices. The succesful fusion of these two important elements of the Ravel masterplan is crucial in creating a living and vibrant urban space. Ravel has the possibility of becoming a role model for new attractive neighbourhoods in Zuidas as the area is ready to develop and almost free of existing buildings. The whole area is connected to Amsterdam by Beethovenstraat, where exclusive high-end shopping will be placed.
