Selection Hogekwartier Amersfoort
30.08.2011
JSA has been selected for the architectural design of the first building block within the urban plan Hogekwartier in Amersfoort. This master plan commissioned by the housing corporation De Alliantie and the City of Amersfoort and designed by KCAP, provides for the restructuring of the area around the Hogeweg, with the construction of approximately 800 new to be build houses, a sports facility (swimming hall) and a square, that connects the adjacent neighborhoods of Liendert and Schuilenburg. 

The first block, which is prominently located on the Hogeweg and the newly constructed Buurtas, provides around 65 apartments, 18 houses, a hostel for drug addicts, shoppingunits, workplaces, public indoor parking and a courtyard. The total block thus covers approximately 15,800 m2.

In the vision of JSA a clear and appealing city block will be designed, that will mark the entrance to the east side of Amersfoort, enlivens the functions at street level and provides a pleasant living environment around a green court yard. In addition, all parking will be solved in an underground parking garage. The preliminary design already started, and the start of construction is planned to take place before the first of January 2013.
