Film Museum Eye Amsterdam

On the current Shell site, opposite Amsterdam Central Station, construction work has been ongoing since July 2005 in order to create a completely new city quarter: Overhoeks. The quarter will provide housing, schools, cafes & restaurants, a riverside park, cultural facilities, shops and a lot of greenery.

The Film Museum is located on a prominent site on the north bank of the river IJ in Amsterdam, opposite the Central Station. The area has been redeveloped by ING Real Estate Development and Ymere and is zoned for housing, offices as well as cultural and commercial facilities.
The new Film Museum (gross surface area around 7,200 m²) provides accommodation for 4 film theaters providing seating for 300, 120 and 80 respectively. There is also space for exhibitions and educational activities (1,200 m²), library, study center, workrooms, hospitality and shops. The museum – the center for cinematography in the Netherlands – is no longer spread across various sites, which means that it can now thrive.
bbn adviseurs conducted a feasibility study on behalf of ING Real Estate and was engaged to provide the entire construction cost management. The project was completed in April 2012.
