BPD awards large project in Amsterdam to ZÜBLIN

  • Turnkey construction of residential and commercial building ODE
  • Top location in the centre of Amsterdam
  • Completion scheduled for March 2021

The STRABAG subsidiary ZÜBLIN is building a new commercial and residential building in the heart of Amsterdam with eleven aboveground floors and two underground levels. The project, called ODE, is named after the Oosterdokseiland neighbourhood of Amsterdam where it is being built. ZÜBLIN Nederland B.V. is realising ODE as general contractor on behalf of the Dutch project development company OOA C.V., a subsidiary of BPD Europe. The tenant, B.V., will open its new European headquarters at ODE and will occupy all of the office space.

When it is completed in March 2021, ODE will have about 102,000 m² of space, including the offices (approx. 65,000 m²) as well as 42 exclusive owner-occupied apartments (total of about 7,000 m²), 30,000 m² of parking on two underground levels, a café, a restaurant and an additional 1,500 m² of retail space.

The unique location between the historic old town and the river IJ, along with the modern architecture and convenient location with excellent rail, road and airport access, makes ODE an attractive site for business, gastronomy, retail and living.

ODE is ZÜBLIN’s second large project in a central location along the river IJ in Amsterdam. The German construction company is currently building the Y-Towers, two high-rise towers for a hotel and quality apartments, in the city’s Overhoeks neighbourhood. Y-Towers will be completed by 2020.
