Amsterdam’s Eastern Harbour District consists of a number of artificial peninsulas constructed around 1900. When the once-flourishing port lost its function, the decision was made to turn the district into a prominent residential area. The transformation of the docklands, which began in the 1990s, is now complete. Diverse urban plans were devised for the various sections of the district, making the Eastern Harbor District a true sampling of the Dutch housing construction of recent decades.
