Completion Noorderpark New Entrance
After winning the competition in 2003 West 8 has been working on the design of Noorderpark. Different parts of the park and several viaducts have been delivered in phases the past years. In conjunction with the newly completed metro Noord/Zuidlijn (North-South metro line) of Amsterdam in July 2018, West 8 designs a new entrance for the municipality North Amsterdam as part of the enhancement of our Noorderpark design.
On 22 Novermber, an official opening was commenced to celebrate completion of the park’s new entrance at the side of the viaduct on the Johan van Hasseltweg at the Noord/Zuidlijn second metro station ‘Noorderpark’. With coffee, tea and a performance by the choir Double Dutch, Saskia Groenewoud, portfolio holder for Public Space and Economy greeted all guests and visitos who came to the celemony.
With this new entrance, users coming from the Noorderpark station will have a flawless access to the park and the event terrain that is located in the middle of the Noorderpark. The layout of the new entrance connects to the two existing entrances, at the roundabout Waddenweg / Meeuwenlaan and at the entrance to the Noorderparkbad.
