Overhoeks, 't IJ, Amsterdam-Noord, Amsterdam - Netherlands

“Overhoeks” is the latest addition to the Amsterdam-Noord quarters; located on the former Shell Research site, opposite of Amsterdam Central Station on the IJ banks.

 

Overhoeks is a typical growth area, where residential areas, industrial areas as well as areas for other commercial exploitations are developed. Newest addition to Overhoeks is Film institution EYE.

 

Shell have not left the area, they have moved a few blocks further down ’t IJ; separated by apartments, the offices perfectly blend in, the shell marks the spot. It is called Shell Technology Centre Amsterdam.

 

Here’s a wiki article on ’t IJ, which IMHO is wrong. The river is called ’t IJ, where the article refers to it as IJ.

 

Amsterdam (pronounced /ˈæmstərdæm/ [ɑmstərˈdɑm]) is the capital and largest city of the Netherlands, located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country. From: wikipedia.
