Amsterdam’s biggest redevelopment project is the Eastern Docklands. The man-made peninsulas were originally seaports but have now been transformed into urbanized residential use with a cultural quarter. The left side of the island is still being utilized for cruise ships.

The OBA (Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam) Central Library in Oosterdockseiland opened in July 2007 and was designed by Jo Coenen. With an area of 28,000 square meters, it is the largest library in the Netherlands.

On the other side of the River IJ is Noord. This is where the EYE Film Institute Netherlands relocated in Spring of 2012. The Vienna office of Delugan Meissel Associated Architects designed the building with four film auditoriums, cafe, exhibition place and museum shop.
