The apartments offer stunning perspectives of leafy Emmaplein square and nearby tree-lined lanes. The entrance to Vondelpark is extremely nearby, practically on your doorstep. The elegant buildings in Willemspark Quarter are appealing and exude a sense of calm. A super prime location!
The area, with Cornelis Schuytstraat, Amstelveenseweg and Koninginneweg, is home to a wide selection of exquisite shops, including Linnick, Wessel and Zikking, restaurants and sidewalk cafes.
A tip from the locals: ZuiderMRKT, the lovely Saturday market on Jacob Obrechtstraat. Zuid borough furthermore offers a full range of cultural venues, from world-famous Concertgebouw to the renowned museums of adjacent Museum Quarter.
Connectivity from Nassau 21 is good: arrive home within about 6 minutes from the A10 (exit S108).
There are always parking spaces available on Nassaulaan, unique to Amsterdam. The stop for tram 2 and station Zuid are extremely close-by. And there is an excellent - and beautiful - bicycle shortcut to the city center via Vondelpark.

In 1881, urban architect J.G. van Niftrik designed Willemspark, as a finalization of the plans drafted for Vondelpark and its surroundings by landscape architect L.P. Zocher. With villas situated along ponds that extend into the park.
Oranje Nassaulaan is the neighborhood's longest street, named after the Dutch royal family. Since 1902, the entire area was named in reference to King Willem III. At the end of the 19th century, the land surrounding Van Eeghenstraat was owned by the Willemspark contracting company, headed by eight Amsterdam natives who wanted to stop the exodus of affluent Amsterdam residents to Haarlem or 't Gooi region.
Overpopulation, dense urban development and foul-smelling canals detracted from the inner city's appeal. And new, quick tram and train services made the more attractive rural areas easy to reach.
Which meant that it was time for a counterattack: a posh residential neighborhood with elegant homes, broad streets and its own park. The times may have changed, but it seems that the considerations are still the same.
