A final note about the Bijlmer.
Since property prices in Amsterdam are quite expensive, the Bijlmer is now becoming a cheaper alternative to expats. This is good for de Bijlmer, since more money starts to flow in. It does make property values now more expensive for those that are born there and can't buy the houses that were unpopular just a few years ago...
