Amsterdam Nieuw-West is the district where boroughs like Geuzenveld/Slotermeer, Slotervaart and Osdorp belong to. These used to be the boroughs that were called ‘Western town villages’ after the war. Through the many renovation projects and small new development plans the boroughs’ appearance has changed drastically over the years. These boroughs received the label ‘town village’ because of the way the boroughs were set up, with a lot of space and green areas. Nieuw Sloten and De Aker are beautiful additions that were developed in the 90’s.

The city district isn’t completely located in the periphery of the city, because the Overtoomse veld and the Rembrandtpark also belong to Nieuw-West and are located not far from the ring of canals. Nieuw-West has a lot of stores and shops, from the bigger supermarkets till the somewhat smaller delicatessens and offers numerous facilities for the modern urban citizen. By tram you’re in the heart of the city within five minutes and for some recreation in the outside air you have a lot of parks and green areas are at your disposal.

Nieuw-West has stores and shops that are far more modern than you will see in city districts Centrum or Amsterdam-Zuid. A lot of owner occupied apartments are part of an owners association.

In Nieuw-West all kinds of construction projects are being developed, for which you can still register. The original spacious neighbourhoods provide enough room for new construction initiatives. Projects like Kade Osdorp, Stadstuin Overtoom and the Andreas Ensemble, each are perfect examples of construction projects of the highest quality.
But during your search you shouldn’t leave out the somewhat older houses in the city district. Some post war house building offers families a lot of space and green areas, for a substantial lower buying price when you compare this with new construction projects. The only disadvantage of Nieuw-West is something you see everywhere in Amsterdam. The closer you get to the city centre it gets increasingly difficult to park your car. You won’t have to worry about that when you live in Osdorp or Geuzenveld, at least for now.
