The municipality of Amsterdam needs to greatly accelerate the new construction of homes. Due to the scarcity that is now arising, prices of homes in the capital are rising undesirably high. A wide range of parties reports this to Het Financieele Dagblad. From builders, brokers, developers and investors to corporations. The municipality responds that they are doing what they can, referring to the plans to realize 50,000 new homes in the next 10 years.
