Value of a City E-book
In our e-book 'Value of a City', we summarize all our background stories in relation to the city. Including innovations in smart cities, the impact of climate change in the green and healthy city, mobility hubs, agglomeration advantages, housing corporations and geography.
View our e-book
In the "Value of a City" series, we provide our monthly vision on a topic related to the value of the city. This vision is generated from internal research and dialogue with both internal and external stakeholders, in close collaboration with consultants and analysts from our Real Estate Strategy & Innovation team.
The main topic is divided into four themes:
Soul of a city
Changes of the city
Resilience of the city
Smart cities

Every month we publish a column on a topic related to the value of the city. This contains a view on the social relevance of cities, urban development and therefore also real estate. Visit all the columns below and download the relevant white paper on the page itself.
 

Soul of a city

Ode to the housing association

We are faced with a major challenge to ensure that living in the city remains affordable and thus retains its soul and that we feel connected to the city in which we live.

Agglomeration benefits are not just about scale

The news that we will not be able to go to the office for the next few weeks is difficult for me. For me, the office is the place to work together on projects, to have meetings and to be able to work quietly, but also the place to catch up with colleagues and my team; something that gives me energy.

The soul of a City

Now that I have lived in the city for 17 years, I call myself an Amsterdammer; thanks to and despite all the changes in recent years, a city that gives me energy, I enjoy living with my family and have the luxury of going to the office by bike every day. But how come I really feel like an Amsterdammer?

Changes of the city

Kalverstraat in 2030

The Kalverstraat as the aorta of the new business district that is developing in the center of Amsterdam. Where old business comes back in new form, because the businessman and woman is back in town!

De Randstad loopt leeg card
Insights

The Randstad is emptying out

The initial cause of this has everything to do with supply and demand. For years there has been a chronic shortage of affordable housing in the Randstad, the economic heart of the Netherlands. This applies to both starters in the buyers' market and middle incomes in the tenant market.

The future-proof city

The value of the city lies in its future-proofness. In order to be able to anticipate the needs of the time, vision and ambition are needed as guidelines for strategic area development.

Resilience of the city

Lessons from the desert

Having a place to live is a right for everyone. Preferably in a nice place in an inclusive environment with room for personal development and perspective.

Insights • Sustainability

Climate risk

Climate risk is now a reality which will impact current and future value of property. When we talk about climate risk, we invariably mean one of two things – the transitional risk of moving towards a low carbon economy or the physical risks associated with climate change.

A city full of green is not valued enough

A green environment or fresh air is not often a reason to live in a city, rather the opposite. It is often a reason to escape the city at the weekend and visit nature, or even to live elsewhere.

The smart Smart City

A fully digital city is like working completely from home due to corona: all spontaneity and creativity disappear like snow in the sun. Living in the city only gives energy when the city is bustling with activity and at the same time provides peace of mind when you need it.

City profiler

Today, we can better see urban policy makers as 'city profilers'. They must make the right connections to arrive at future-proof solutions for our cities in the coming decades.

City streets should not have cars

The arrival of the car has radically changed the spatial development of our cities and the infrastructure in the Netherlands.
In order to bring cars and freight traffic safely and quickly from A to B, highways and motorways, bridges and viaducts, traffic lights and pedestrian crossings were necessary.
