This year, Neinver has moved the project into the next phase after obtaining the environmental license for Amsterdam The Style Outlets. This milestone will allow the company to move forward into the construction phase, with the opening scheduled for 2018 and creating 600 new jobs.
Amsterdam The Style Outlets will be located next to a freeway, Amsterdam-Haarlem railway route, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which handles 52 million passengers each year. Additionally, the city centre’s catchment area covers the four largest and richest Dutch cities (Randstad metropolitan zone): Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht.
Neinver´s first outlet centre in the Netherlands will have a retail area of 18,000m² and approximately 150 stores. It will offer a leisure and food-court area of over 1,000m² with terraces, corridors, greenery, and a kids/family zone. Amsterdam The Style Outlets will provide 1,950 parking spaces for visitors: 1,450 spots in the outlet complex itself and an additional 500 on the SugarCity plot.
Amsterdam The Style Outlets is slated to become an international premium shopping destination, which will host both Dutch and internationally renowned high-end brands. The architectural concept for Amsterdam The Style Outlets was prepared by Soeters Van Eldonk, an Amsterdam-based company. The concept draws upon the best examples of Dutch architecture, inspired by old factory buildings and the industrial nature of the surrounding area, filled with sugar production plants which used to operate there.
Amsterdam The Style Outlets smoothly blends into the style of SugarCity by drawing upon the area’s tradition and character. It perfectly matches the surrounding landscape and the style of Halfweg. Set on piles, the centre virtually emerges out of water, which is a clear reference to traditional Dutch architecture. The smart and stylish concept will be complemented by greenery, including vertical gardens covering the buildings’ elevations.
This outlet centre will reflect Amsterdam’s cosmopolitan nature as a stylish shopping destination for local consumers and shoppers from around the globe.
