Startblok is a housing project for young refugees who have recently received their residence permit (status-holders) and for young persons from the Netherlands. In cooperation with the municipality of Amsterdam, housing organisations De Key and Eigen Haard are building 540 housing units at Elzenhagen, a former sports-grounds in the north of Amsterdam.
A great start for everybody
The goal of Startblok is not only to house youngsters, but mainly to provide a good start in Amsterdam for everybody, whether they are from around or fled their country. Startblok will be a place for everyone between the ages of 18 to 28 to start building and preparing for a future together.
