Plus Ultra Amsterdam will be a multi-tenant building to accommodate the growth of the companies and institutes in the field of life sciences & health. The building is located on the Medical Business Park Amsterdam, next to Amsterdam UMC. The building will consist of approx. 8,000 sqm for laboratories and offices. This new building will become an inspiring environment, where students, scientists and entrepreneurs will meet and innovation and business can flourish.
Plus Ultra Amsterdam is designed within the ambitious masterplan ‘Medical Bussines Park Amsterdam’ on the lot called ‘Kavel E’. The strict urban regulations are used to design a compact building with efficient lettable floor areas around a facilitating core. From a lively and transparent ground floor an open stair case ‘spirals’ up towards the top floor. These stairs connect the reception areas of the individual floors with each other and the shared facilities on the ground floor. Besides a reception & coffee desk the shared facilities encompass two meeting rooms, a bike & scooter parking, two showers, a multi-functional first-aid room and a catering facility.

Medical Business Park
The Medical Business Park (MBP) is a medical orientated knowledge hub at the south side of A-UMC. The park offers space for 100,000 sqm of laboratory- office buildings. The Medical Business Park lives up to its name because of the park-like areas in between the buildings. This green campus environment is an excellent location for life sciences and health companies because of the highly specialised medical knowledge and research facilities of the Amsterdam University Medical Centre as part of the Life Sciences District. Plus Ultra Amsterdam will be one of the first developments at the park. The development of Plus Ultra Amsterdam fits perfectly within the focus of A-UMC, and provides accommodation for spin off companies around and companies that want to be part of the ecosystem of the A-UMC. Due to Kadans’ experience in creating a lively ecosystem, the building will provide an excellent link to the existing ecosystem of the A-UMC and the ecosystem of Kadans at other Life Sciences campuses.
