Altera Vastgoed NV (hereafter: Altera) has taken delivery from De Nijs of the first residential building (block 1) in Phase 1 of the Robijnhof project in Leiden and is welcoming the project’s first residents.
Block 1 consists of 44 apartments, spread over five floors and varying in size between 53 m2 and 64 m2. The apartments are connected to the district heating network and solar panels fitted on the roof of the building will serve the central facilities. Over half of the apartments in this block provide social sector housing. An agreement has been reached with the care provider Libertas that 32 residents of the former care home will move into the new-build apartments in Block 1.
Erwin Wessels, CIO Altera; “With the completion of the first 44 apartments, we have taken a significant step towards completing the Robijnhof project. The apartments reflect our investment strategy, which is geared towards servicing a range of target groups, including senior citizens, with a geographical focus on the Randstad urban region and adjacent residential areas.”
The delivery of the project will take place in phases, with the remaining parts scheduled for delivery in 2022 and 2023.
The Robijnhof project
The Robijnhof project involves the demolition of a former care home and its replacement with new residential units and care services, in partnership with care provider Libertas Leiden. The project as a whole involves the realisation of 119 lifetime-adaptable rental properties (24 of which are social sector housing), a day care centre for clients of Libertas Leiden, 79 underground parking spaces and three general storage areas for scooters and bicycles. An intramural care complex with 40 psychogeriatric units will also be created to the specifications of Libertas Leiden, which will rent the complex for an extended period. In the second phase, 15 ground-level homes will also be constructed for private sale.
MVGM will manage the property on behalf of Altera.
