About AM

We are a committed and driven area developer that develops inspiring living environments based on conceptual strength, innovation, and intensive collaboration with stakeholders.

Vision and mission

We believe that area development is about people. The world is changing rapidly. Societal issues are not abstract challenges but concrete questions from people. It is more important than ever for area developers to take responsibility, show courage, and be vulnerable. Only in this way can we achieve effective, sustainable, and fair solutions.

AM aims to be the leading and socially driven area developer in the Netherlands. We set the tone with distinctive, innovative concepts and unconventional collaborations that make people's lives more beautiful and better. We focus on impact themes such as 'Move to climate positivity,' 'Design for wellbeing,' and 'Create social impact.'

In collaboration with governments, real estate investors, housing corporations, social organizations, residents, and other real estate users, we develop unique and high-quality areas for living, working, shopping, and recreation. We do this from our central office, the AM House in Utrecht, and focus on four business units: AM Northwest, AM Southwest, AM Central, and Commercial Real Estate. These business units are supported by the AM Lab, which includes concept development, area economics, and sustainability. AM is part of the Royal BAM Group.


AM's projects receive ample recognition, as evidenced by prestigious awards for Kerkelanden, Hilversum (NRW Jaarprijs), Emerald, Amsterdam (Amsterdamse Nieuwbouwprijs), Villa Mokum, Amsterdam (Amsterdamse Nieuwbouwprijs), Newport Nesselande, Rotterdam (Neprom Prijs and Neprom Publieksprijs), the office building Forum, Amsterdam (Mipim Award and FGH Prijs), Regenboog Park, Tilburg (ULI Award), Chassé Park, Breda (Neprom Volhardingsprijs), Huijgensgracht, Vogelweide-Ypenburg and Duindorp, The Hague (Nieuwe Stad Prijs), Hof der Verademing, The Hague (WoonAward Haaglanden), Abtstraat, Maastricht (Victor de Stuersprijs), shopping center Overkapel, Utrecht, Centrumplan Etten-Leur, Spuikwartier, The Hague, and Villa Arena, Amsterdam (all four honored with the NRW Jaarprijs).

AM in retrospect

AM originated in 2002 when Amstelland Ontwikkeling acquired its industry peer Multi Development Corporation. Together, they formed AM. The company developed residential areas, offices, shopping centers, and leisure facilities in numerous European countries. Until 2006, AM was listed on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange as an AMX fund. In 2006, the company was split and delisted from the stock exchange, becoming part of the Royal BAM Group. In 2010, AM merged with BAM Vastgoed, and since then, they together form the area and real estate developer AM. With this, AM continues the legacy of development companies such as Amstelland Vastgoed, Wilma Vastgoed, HBG Vastgoed, and BAM Vastgoed. These four companies have been leading in the area and real estate development market since the 1980s, providing over 100,000 families with new living spaces and developing noteworthy work, shopping, and leisure facilities throughout the Netherlands over the years.

Our people are the driving force behind our inspiring and leading areas that make the Netherlands more beautiful.

As a socially driven area developer, AM places a high value on collaboration. Therefore, AM gladly collaborates with various organizations and companies to improve the quality of the living environment in the Netherlands.

As 'developers of impact,' AM operates from a strong social commitment. As an area and real estate developer, we actively work every day on solutions for current, urgent challenges. This includes our health, the climate, energy transition, and social cohesion. Working at AM means working on impact. For people, society, and nature. At AM, things are well organized, but we also love to learn from you by being open to new ideas. We value a strong culture based on four essentials: Flair & Fun, Action, Inspiration, and a Winning Mentality.
