Using the brand name Proper-Stok, Heijmans has signed a partnership agreement with the Nieuw-West Urban District of the Municipality of Amsterdam for the development of the Talent Building. This building forms part of the Podium Amsterdam area development. Heijmans will take on the building's development and construction.
The start of construction of the Talent Building is planned for 2014.
The signing represents the start of the development of the Talent Building that will include the O'Talent Experience, an experiential world for talent development in the Netherlands produced by the Kranendonk Experience Company.
The O'Talent Experience will add an important destination to the Lelylaan in Amsterdam Nieuw-West. The O'Talent Experience will enable visitors, day trippers as well as companies, to discover their talents in an instructive and playful way.
The Talent Building concept is entirely focused on accommodating and developing talent, and on creating a meeting place for talent. The building will also include approximately 300 student residences, catering facilities and additional services. The start of construction of the Talent Building is planned for 2014.
The Podium Amsterdam area development, of which the Talent Building forms part, comprises more than 30,000 m² in programming space. Additional homes, and cultural and social institutions will still be constructed in the area between the A10 ring road and the Amsterdam Lelylaan NS Railway Station.
