Oostelijk Havengebied

Interesting
These vast expanses of reclaimed land, which until the 1970s were industrial dockyards, were in the early 1990s converted into residential areas. Contemporary interpretations of traditional local housing (Java-eiland) border its three vast residential complexes (KNSM-eiland). The two peninsulas of Sporenburg and Borneo-eiland have extensive low-rise family housing with roof terraces or patios. A successful exercise in mixed social housing, a concept which is very important to Amsterdam.
