#apartments in amsterdam
Welcome to the neighbourhood.
The Oostenburger island was built in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company with the purpose of housing shipyards and warehouses. In an old steam engine factory built there in the early 19th century, Yays Oostenburgergracht now offers 43 apartments just east of the old city centre. Visit the nearby Artis Magistra zoo, the Maritime Museum or hop across the street to the Brouwerij t IJ brewery if you fancy a local beer in your Amsterdam pied-a-terre.
In the 18th century, Amsterdam was known as the world s central warehouse. Part of this heritage is the Zoutkeetsgracht, which was named after its warehouses used for storing and processing salt. To this day, no other European city boasts so many historic warehouses, most of them converted into apartments. Yays Zoutkeetsgracht location which now offers 31 apartments around the corner from lively Westerpark – is no exception, except that it s exceptionally amazing of course.
Once a forgotten piece of Amsterdam built in 1631 by merchant Jan Bicker, today Bickerseiland is one of the city s most sought-after neighbourhoods. Yays Bickersgracht is located right on the water s edge and a stone s throw away from the bustling Haarlemmerdijk with its many shops and restaurants and the iconic Jordaan area.
