The building, with a floor area of 7,000 m2, dates from 1880 and has undergone a number of redevelopments over the years.

  • The former Diamond Bourse building (Diamantbeurs) of Amsterdam has a rich history, in terms of its architecture as well as the many functions it has accommodated over the years. In February 2015 Willem Sijthoff and Beheer Brouwershoff acquired this building with the intention of redeveloping it as the Centre for the Creative Industry. The ambition is to create a mix of flexible workspaces, permanent office spaces and meeting and conference facilities in the building, supported by catering facilities on the ground floor (grand café) and on the new upper floor (rooftop restaurant with roof terrace). The new glass rooftop structure will be the most eye-catching feature. Peak Development is assisting the owners with the redevelopment of the building. Go to the website
