With this acquisition, Vesteda is effectively expanding its portfolio with affordable rental housing at attractive locations in or near the major Dutch cities. The development concerns a mix of 258 ground-floor single family homes and 119 apartments. Approximately 90 percent of the homes has been set aside for the private rental sector, while the remaining 10 percent is designated for social rental housing. The homes will largely be developed and built on Heijmans’s own land holdings.

Inflation-proof and sustainable housing portfolio

The ground-floor homes will be developed in accordance with the Heijmans House Brand: a living concept developed by Heijmans for the rental sector that adds inflation-proof homes to the portfolios of housing associations and property investors. This is achieved in various ways, including a speedy development and building process, price guarantees and customization within consistent floor plans.

All homes will have a A+++ energy label and will be equipped with solar panels. Furthermore, the apartments in Zutphen (Noorderhaven) will also be compliant with the 'Nearly Zero Energy Building' (BENG) standards that are to go into effect in 2020.
