Space is a scarce commodity in Amsterdam. This makes it even more remarkable that there is still an abundance of space to build in the Amsterdam Life Sciences District. Due to recent developments there are 100,000 sq m (1,100,000 sq ft) worth of vacant lots still available. These spacious plots can quickly become operational and can be divided up in various ways. Multiple-occupancy buildings offer startups just what they need. These spaces are affordable and immediately available. The Amsterdam Health & Technology Center (AHTC) provides a hub for all kinds of health and care related organisations. The AHTC comprises no less than 29,000 sq m (315,000 sq ft) of space.
