Our methodology is rooted in ten years of on-the-ground pioneering in Amstel III, one of Amsterdam’s largest and most complex transformation areas. Over the years the project evolved in scale and impact and now shows its rich and tangible legacy in the area. Besides, it received national and international recognition and awards as a best practice in urban process innovation and stakeholder engagement. It soon became clear that the question how to successfully set up urban transformation or change in areas with a lot of different owners and other stakeholders, is something that many cities around the world are struggling with.
After ten years, we embrace the opportunity to look back at our journey – and really understand its legacy and its relevance today. We wrote down the full Amstel III story, of course richly illustrated with real examples. We take you through every step and break down the ideas behind it and the key success factors.
