Spatial development framework for public space and development strategy
The team of marco.broekman and Stadkwadraat has been selected by the municipality of Amstelveen to create a development framework for the open space and a development strategy for the 33 hectares business district of Legmeer, Amstelveen.
Legmeer is situated in between the bigger green areas of De Poel, Amsterdamse Bos and het Groene Hart. Currently, a typical mix of car dealers, DIY-stores, recreational functions, the municipal dump and wholesale stores can be found in the area. The area has strong borders on every side with different characters, and a lot of owners and stakeholders.
The municipality is looking for a way of planning that can guarantee qualities of the area, but provides enough flexibility for a changing programme, changing users and a changing programme. Priority lays in the way of working together with all the owners and investors of the area, together with the municipality we would like to explore the possibilities.
