This entire sustainable neighborhood is built on water

It took almost ten years of planning and a lot of determination, but construction on the floating sustainable neighborhood Schoonschip in Amsterdam has finally started. The first residents are planning to move in right after this summer and if all goes according to plan all 46 floating homes will be in place by the summer of 2019.  With 500 solar panels, 30 heat pumps and no usage of gas Schoonschip allegedly is going to be one of the most sustainable neighborhoods of Europe. And the great thing is: the entire hood is built on a canal in the upcoming north of Amsterdam.
