Real estate investor Altera Vastgoed NV (hereinafter: Altera) and V.o.f. Spoorlaan, a partnership between CRA Vastgoed and Novaform, have reached an agreement concerning the realisation of 70 new-build apartments on Spoorlaan, in the heart of Tilburg. The 70 apartments are part of a 24-storey residential tower to be constructed at the historic location of the Van Mierlo & Zoon bank building.
The rental units are two-room and three-room apartments, distributed across floors 2–11. Varying in size from 55 to 96 m², most of the apartments will be in the mid-range rental segment, with a portion being in accordance with the 2019 Tilburg Covenant on the Mid-range Rental Segment (Verordening Middenhuur Tilburg 2019).
The project will meet high sustainability requirements, and will be equipped with features including a thermal energy storage facility, a WTW ventilation system with heat recovery, and solar panels. In terms of mobility, the sustainable design will be enhanced by a spacious collective bicycle storage area and shared electric cars.
Jaap van der Bijl, CEO of Altera: ‘Following previous acquisitions in locations including Den Bosch and Son en Breugel, we are delighted to be adding yet another new-build project in Brabant to our portfolio. In addition to meeting our requirements with regard to sustainability, the project will ensure the realisation of affordable living space within the mid-range rental segment at this location in the inner city of Tilburg’.
The project is being developed by V.o.f. Spoorlaan: a partnership between CRA Vastgoed and Novaform Real Estate Developers. Huybregts Relou is responsible for the realisation.
