Whether you live in Noord or not: the area around Amsterdam’s Boven ‘t Y Shopping Center is definitely worth a visit. Center manager Daan Woudhuysen shares a few nice tips with you and talks about the rapidly developing area.
“It mall has been around for more than fifty years, but the area around it is in full development,” says Daan. “Just look at the North-South line, which has ensured better accessibility to North. A lot is also happening around the Buikslotermeerplein, more green areas, eateries and a cinema have been added and student residences and hotels are being built. If you haven’t been there for a few years, you don’t know what you see. The area is hip and happening, I think it is beautiful!”
So nice to see how Noord is changing. But while you are there: there is plenty to do!

Dirt cheap parking and unique shops
In the shopping center you will find all the well-known shops you need, from a HEMA to a MediaMarkt. But there are also shops that you will not find anywhere else. “We have the local organic shop ‘G&W Gezondheidswinkel’ and a local dry cleaner that has been there for fifty years, which are extremely popular. The offer has been fulfilled more than a hundred stores super diverse, from clothing to flowers.” And a unique advantage? “You can still park very cheaply (and in the evenings even for free) there! Where can you still find that in Amsterdam?”
Tip: are you also interested in bringing your store to Boven ‘t Y? If you send Daan an email, he will gladly show you around.
