Two iconic towers along the IJ waterfront


Amsterdam’s skyline will be enriched with two iconic buildings along the IJ waterfront next to the EYE Film Institute and A’DAM Tower. One will be home to Maritim Amsterdam: the flagship congress and conference hotel for the award-winning German Maritim Group. The second one will be a high-quality residential building and offers apartments for everyone: from single apartments to family flats. The buildings will be designed by Team V Architecture.


The new unique complex in Overhoeks, the lively neighbourhood in the heart of Amsterdam, will offer all the facilities and services required to meet the wishes and needs of locals and guests: a residential tower, a top-notch congress and conference centre, interesting speakers, impressive events, excellent food, a sky bar with a breath-taking view, a unique wellness and fitness area, top-quality service throughout the day and a four-star hotel room to add to the fullness of the experience.


Overhoeks boasts landmark buildings such as the spaceship-like EYE Film Institute and A’DAM Tower (Amsterdam Dance and Music Tower). It’s emerging skyline as well as the conglomeration of music and creative businesses, leading congress and conference events and top-class hotels will further boost Overhoeks’ reputation as the new hotspot of Amsterdam.
