This spectacular penthouse boasts 470m2 of bright indoor and outdoor living space, including a patio and terraces with breathtaking views. It’s the definition of a new level of living in Amsterdam.


Unique and pioneering in architecture, Pontsteiger is one of the largest and highest residential buildings in Amsterdam. This grand building touches the expanse of the IJ river and rises above the Houthaven. At an altitude of 60 meters, the imposing “bridge section” of eight floors begins, with views stretching all the way to the coast. The impressive dimensions and gleaming appearance of the building make it the city’s newest eye-catcher.

Pontsteiger is located on the eastern border of the Houthaven, one of the four ports that form the area called the Westelijk Havengebied. On the right side, the Silodam extends into the IJ river, and on the opposite side of the river, the NDSM wharf does the same. Pontsteiger is built on the exact spot where the ferry from the Houthaven to Amsterdam-Noord used to dock for many years.

This former timber harbour is being transformed into the city’s first climate neutral district. Characterized by a variety of building types and styles, this high-quality built environment offers abundant access to water and green spaces. The area will not only provide access to important services such as schools, daycares, and medical services, but also hostels, restaurants, and other commercial functions.

And in true Dutch style, the historical city centre and the charming canals are only a 10-minute bike ride away.


The ground floor resident lift offers a stunning outside view while taking you up to the penthouse floor. Upon entering the home, you immediately experience the beautiful, extra-high ceilings and large windows that open up the penthouse to the spectacular views all around it.

This unique penthouse offers 2-3 bedrooms, a private gym, sauna, and a yoga and meditation room. The sun flooded eat-in kitchen features a custom-made Arclinea kitchen with Calacatta marble worktop. The living area boasts an imposing custom-made marble dining table that was mindfully placed during construction. Furthermore, there is ample closet and storage space throughout the apartment.

This home consists of 415 m² of same-level, bright indoor and outdoor living space, including a patio of 31 m² and a balcony of 24 m². The large patio is included in the building’s volume and is protected by glass windscreens. As a subtle reference to the location’s history as timber docks, all exterior ceilings are clad in timber, giving the building a warm atmosphere.
