A total of 74 homes will be built on the site of the former Spaarndammerschool. Heijmans has tasked with the further development and execution of the housing programme. At least 30 percent of the homes must be social housing. In addition, as many homes as possible should be built for middle income households. Input from residents in the area has contributed to the development of a high-quality plan, which includes the retention of as many existing trees as possible and the reduction of nuisance to the area during construction to the absolute minimum.
