As part of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, Almere is located between two international airports and near the Port of Amsterdam. Almere features a multitude of highways, railways and waterways. This makes Almere a prime location for living, to build your own house or for business development and opportunities. Almere has an abundance of space available to accommodate both residential and commercial property investments. It has excellent procedures in place facilitating the licensing or sale of land to set up new business or expand established businesses.

Almere came into existence on the drawing board in 1976. The city was designed from scratch bases on a multi-centre plan that would incorporate as much of the surrounding water and nature as possible. In 2022, Almere is going to host the 7th Floriade World Horticultural Expo. After the exhibition, a new district will emerge on the site, including housing, regional facilities and also space for national and international companies, thereby offering plenty of opportunities for entrepreneurs en property developers alike.
