Real estate investor Altera Vastgoed (hereinafter “Altera”) is going to place several insect hotels in the coming period. After the first placement at the roof garden of De Groene Kaap in Rotterdam, the second hotel has been placed in the residential and care complex Het Prinsenkwartier in Brielle. The coming period hotels will be placed at two complexes in Amstelveen.
Today there are far too few places where insects, such as the bee, can make a nest. Biodiversity is essential to strengthen our ecosystem. Especially in a densely populated urban environment, it is vital to stimulate biodiversity. By deploying insect hotels, the ecological value of nature is supported.
Niels Van Wonderen, Head of Asset Management Residential: “Densification offers opportunities for inner-city greening and sustainability. With this initiative of the insect hotels, we can make a contribution in restoring biodiversity. This creates a nature inclusive and future proof living environment where everyone feels at home.”
Het Prinsenkwartier is located on historic ground within the fortress walls of Brielle. The complex consists of 44 private sector rental apartments for the elderly / 55 + target group with a (latent or already present) extramural care need, 28 intramural care units, meeting space of Welzijn Ouderen and workplaces for including primary care staff and 41 parking spaces.
