Altera Vastgoed NV (hereafter: Altera) has taken delivery of Vijverhof on Leeghwaterplein in The Hague from Ten Brinke and is welcoming the project’s first residents.
The newly delivered property consists of two apartment buildings. The first building contains 56 apartments and two commercial spaces of 263 m² in total; the second building contains 99 apartments. All 155 apartments are completely gasless and connected to the district heating supply. To cover collective energy consumption, the roofs of both buildings have been fitted with solar panels.
The affordable mid-rent apartments vary in size from 48 m² to 82 m² and have primarily been built for starters. A large proportion of the apartments are governed by The Hague’s Housing Regulation to protect lower incomes on the rental market.
Altera CIO Erwin Wessels: “The redevelopment of the former port and industrial area around Laakhaven-Hollands Spoor has resulted in a modern and varied district that offers an outstanding combination of living, working, shopping and recreation. With the addition of the Vijverhof project, we are expanding sustainable and affordable rental housing opportunities for starters.”
The Vijverhof plan
The buildings have been developed by Ten Brinke Slot and form part of the Vijverhof project in the Laakhaven-Hollands Spoor district. The delivery of the apartments to Altera marks the completion of the Vijverhof plan. As a special feature, the apartments in Block 3 have been built with a huge span over the entrance to the Q-Park underground garage. A residential tower for DUWO containing 481 student accommodation units was completed at an earlier stage. The project, close to The Hague’s Hollands Spoor station, offers an ideal mix of green space and urban dynamics, with facilities such as the Q-Park Laakhaven parking garage beneath the square itself and the Megastores shopping centre within walking distance.
MVGM will manage the property on behalf of Altera.
