Multimodal transport hub
The resulting proposal was twofold: a new multimodal transport hub located on the intersection between Cornelis Lelylaan and the A10, and new urban development on both sides of the A10 road that link the adjacent neighbourhoods. UNSense is currently engaged in an independent study that examines potential digital interactions between infrastructure and users, as it identifies the area as a testing-ground for innovation.
Human-centric urban environments
The 2016 proposal focused on new potential urban development in and around the Lelylaan/A10 intersection which would result in the introduction of 8,400 new residential units, in a total built area of 750,000 m². With underground and above ground connections there would no longer be a prevailing concept of the inner/outer ring. New streets and pathways would favour pedestrians, and a density of people and buildings would create liveliness and a mix of uses. The provision of amenities with a robust network of public spaces would allow for a strong social infrastructure and job creation opportunities. UNSense is looking into new digital applications that enhance social connectivity and help create an informed society in what is speculated to be Amsterdam’s new neighbourhood.
