New Brooklyn area development
The total New Brooklyn area development – close to the Almere Poort NS train station - includes several fields, in which Heijmans is also currently developing and building more than 250 owner-occupier homes. The sale of the Vesteda homes involves a total of six different fields. In the coming years, New Brooklyn will see the construction of over 1,400 homes in the social rental, mid-market rental, liberalised rental and owner-occupier segments. The architecture of New Brooklyn was inspired by the famous borough of the same name in New York.
