More houses = better plinths and neighborhood feel
Three dutch housing corporations work together with the municipality of Amsterdam on the densification of an area in the west of Amsterdam, in a corner of the A10 and the Haarlemmerweg. New apartment buildings will be added, with some high rise, in between early nineteenth century monumental buildings. From a previous participation process it is clear that several residents are concerned about the new building height and impact of the densification, have more attention for the greenery and and better public space that invites social interaction. An important note is also the concern for new anonymity and lack of ownership of the new residents. Their wish is that the new homes also offer opportunities for existing inhabitants of the neighborhood.
