Being Development and Steengoed BMA launch The Joan: A concept for the development of a sustainable office building on Joan Muyskenweg 28-32 that offers (creative) companies an innovative workplace. The concept has been established in close cooperation with OZ and Cushman & Wakefield and breeding ground developers Erwin Schuster and Micha Wijngaarde.

Green work in an iconic building. The Joan, like all projects of Being Development, will be built sustainably. Characteristic of The Joan’s appearance is the open structure.

In addition to the large atria and the wooden crossings that adorn the facade, a transparent, light and conspicuous building will appear alongside the A10 highway. The Joan will also facilitate “green” experiments including urban farming; the ability to grow plants experimentally indoors and in rooftop greenhouses. The Joan has a lettable floor area of approximately 15,000 m2. The flexible layout allows companies of different order and size to settle there.

In addition to an office function, The Joan also has a social character. In the building block, innovative catering parties are invited to bring livelihood and reverence to the area. The parties can use the greenhouses on the roof. In conjunction with a creator lab initiated by Erwin Schuster (Ambachtelijke Broedplaats Cruquius Gilde) and Micha Wijngaarde ((Contact Amsterdam, Stork- en Hembrugterrein), the transition to a vibrant city entrance will soon be started.
