Pontsteiger is prominently located on the banks of the IJ at the head of a long pier. The spectacular building, an eye-catching design by Arons and Gelauff architects, has an open structure. From a distance it has the form of a gateway, highlighting its special position in Amsterdam as water city. As you come closer, you see that the Pontsteiger has the form of a chair with an open back. Because it’s raised seven metres above the pier, the building has a surprisingly light appearance. This unique complex houses 366 apartments, including 66 exclusive residences. The ground floor will house public facilities like high-quality catering with waterfront terraces. This is flanked by a small private marina with exclusive access to residents.
A magnificent location: Pontsteiger will be built where the ferry between the Houthaven and Amsterdam-Noord used to dock. It offers a phenomenal panoramic view of a region with a deep-rooted industrial past. A district that in coming years will be transformed into an environmentally sustainable residential area, built on seven, green, low-traffic islands in the northern part of the Spaarndammer district.
