CASE STUDY

Two new residential developments show Redevco’s green credentials

The Porseleinen Toren (Porcelain Tower) in Delft, the Netherlands, acquired from developer Synchroon in 2021, is a notable example of affordable housing in one of the most densely populated parts of the Netherlands. There is also a massive shortage of high-quality rental accommodation here. In fact, nowhere in the country the housing shortage is as acute as it is in Delft.

The average shortfall here is even higher than in Amsterdam and Utrecht. The 40-metre-high, energy-efficient residential complex will be the centrepiece of a sustainable new neighbourhood.

The complex will use solar panels and an alternative energy source supplied by a highly innovative fresh-air heat-exchange installation. Maximum insulation will add to a high level of energy-efficiency. No trees are being chopped down during the development – in fact a parklike environment with plenty of trees will be created where once a high-speed train cut a swathe through the countryside.

Repurposing a former office building into a sustainable residential complex

Another residential development is the Hollandse Meesters (Dutch Masters) complex in Amstelveen, the Netherlands. These apartments form part of a new complex at a former office location just 20 minutes
from Amsterdam and will provide high-quality sustainable homes in an area where there is a huge housing shortage.

Hollandse Meesters will also incorporate highly sustainable solutions, including thermal energy storage technology, solar panels and water buffering on the roofs, to regulate the indoor climate. The building’s design is aimed at maximising natural light and air quality to promote a healthy environment and lifestyle.

The Hollandse Meesters redevelopment is also a great example of repurposing, giving a former office location a new lease on life. It contributes to our diversification strategy and renewed focus on liveable and sustainable urban areas in Europe’s most attractive cities.

“This acquisitions are totally aligned with our goal to invest in residential properties in liveable and sustainable areas in the most attractive cities in Europe."
