De Groene Kaap in Rotterdam welcomes first residents

Developer Stebru has handed over the keys to the first homes at De Groene Kaap in Katendrecht, Rotterdam, to real estate investor Altera Vastgoed.

De Groene Kaap consists of a total of five residential blocks with 450 apartments, penthouses, townhouses and courtyard homes, four commercial spaces and two car parks. Following the completion of the first residential block, the first residents will be welcomed immediately. In the coming months, work will be completed on the remaining residential blocks and Altera will present the keys of the homes to the new residents.

De Groene Kaap

Thanks to the extraordinary architecture a large number of different type of homes have been created. De Groene Kaap offers large-scale city apartments with two, three or four bedrooms, smaller one-bedroom apartments and family homes measuring 160 sq. m. This variety makes the complex suitable for various target groups with a wide range of lifestyles at different stages in life while contributing to inclusivity in the city.

Climate adaptability

In the design, nature and present-day and future weather conditions have been taken into account. The courtyards and roof gardens form a continuous path for walks through the complex. A water buffering system has been installed on the roof, allowing trees and plants to grow. Bird houses encased in the walls and lush vegetation demonstrate attention to biodiversity.

Erwin Wessels, CIO of Altera: “With the completion of the first building at De Groene Kaap and the arrival of the first new residents, Katendrecht is getting an appealing new living environment. The project owes its distinctive character to its diversity of homes and climate adaptability, including large publicly-accessible courtyards. The Kaap’s sustainable qualities contribute to a future-proof return on investment for our residential portfolio.”

Robert Steenbrugge, Managing Director at Stebru: “We are proud that we have been able to add so many amazing homes to Katendrecht. Due to the large variety of new homes, there is something for everyone, in addition to various complementary commercial functions. Through our cooperation with Altera, ambitions that were totally unique at the time have been realised and residents will have a wonderful and green living experience here.”
