Altera acquires 30 homes in the centre of Uithoorn

Real estate investor Altera Vastgoed (Altea) and Van Wijnen Projectontwikkeling West have reached agreement on the acquisition of 28 apartments and two maisonettes in the De Rede project in Uithoorn.

The project is located on the River Amstel in the centre of Uithoorn, opposite the marina. The location is within the Amsterdam urban region and features excellent connections to Amstelveen, Amsterdam and other cities in the vicinity. The planned extension of the Amstellijn suburban tram line will provide a direct connection to the Amsterdam Zuid (WTC) railway station.

Altera’s CEO, Jaap van der Bijl, says: “The demand for homes in this region remains high. We are responding to this need with the acquisition of De Rede. This project, which also contributes to our ESG goals, is a great complement to our young and sustainable housing portfolio.”

The homes vary in size between 90 and 175 sq m. Sustainability is an important theme in the project. The building will not be connected to the natural gas mains, and it will have a low EPC. The entire project will feature geothermal heating, with individual heat pumps in each unit for hot water, underfloor heating and cooling. It will also have CO2-controlled mechanical ventilation (with natural supply) and solar panels on the roof. The building will also house Uithoorn’s new library and other amenities, and the courtyard will serve as a car park.

The project was developed by Van Wijnen Projectontwikkeling West BV and is being built by Van Wijnen Haarlemmermeer. Construction has already started and completion is slated for mid-2022.
