Bijlmer ArenA Station

The Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA Station is situated southeast of the city on the line that links Amsterdam with Utrecht. To the west there is a commercial development area punctuated by the newly built Amsterdam Arena, a 50,000 seat football stadium. To the east there is a large residential area with a high proportion of social housing which has become home for large sections of Amsterdam’s immigrant population.

On behalf of the City of Amsterdam, Dutch architect Pi de Bruijn proposed a 70m wide pedestrian boulevard aligned diagonally to the railway tracks to connect the two districts.

Prior to this project, there were four tracks running on a raised earth embankment that split the area in two. The only pedestrian connection was a narrow and dark tunnel within the old suburban station. The design by Grimshaw and Arcadis Architecten adds four extra tracks to the station.
