Completion of Cruquiuswerf area development Cruquiuseiland in the Eastern Docklands of Amsterdam » Nieuwbouwwijzer.nl
The area developed by area developer AM Cruquiuswerf in the Eastern Docklands of Amsterdam is nearing completion. The Cruquiuswerf plan is part of the transformation of the former industrial and port area of Cruquiuseiland into an attractive residential, working and residential area. This development comprises 173 owner-occupied homes, two commercial spaces, a commercial building of approximately 2,150 m2 GFA and a parking garage. All owner-occupied homes have been sold and the rental apartments have all been rented out. The rental homes and commercial spaces were realized on behalf of ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund, the fund of asr real estate. Midvast is the investor of the company building.
District administrator Ivar Manuel: “There were only a few rules, AM was completely free in this area development process. The expressed may be there. Through creativity and the diverse range of housing, Cruquiuswerf offers living space to different target groups. This is exactly what we need during the crisis in the housing market. Effective, creative solutions that are delivered quickly and of good quality.”
“We are convinced that Cruquiuswerf offers its residents and users a pleasant living and living environment, now and in the future. With the completion of the entire area development, AM is giving substance to its social themes ‘City and area maker’ and ‘Inclusive city’. This is done by creating an attractive, diverse and liveable city and living environment that remains affordable for its residents,” says Peter Heuvelink, director AM Noordwest.
Robbert van Dijk, fund director ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund: “The ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund consciously chooses to invest in a diverse program of rental homes with a focus on affordability. This is a sustainable new-build home in a beautiful location in Amsterdam, not only available for the “happy few”.”
Urban living with attention to meeting
The Cruquiuseiland is in a quiet location and yet within the ring of Amsterdam. The presence of catering and creative activities ensures liveliness in the district. Many residents of the water-rich Cruquiuswerf have a beautiful view of the Amsterdam Rhine Canal and the Nieuwevaart. Residents will soon be able to enjoy a beautiful and public green inner area that facilitates the various residential buildings and meeting facilities under the buildings. The project was designed by KCAP. The realization was in the hands of BAM Wonen.
Different living concepts
The housing offer is diverse with both exclusive and affordable owner-occupied and rental properties. Friends’ houses (where two friends share a house), Live & Work Apartments (a house with a separate practice of working space at home) and Townhouses (city houses for families). In addition, 25 rental homes have been built in the middle segment, whereby transferees from social housing and employees in key professions (such as education and care) were given such rank.
Health is a top priority
AM’s mission is to make the Netherlands more heart-safe together with the real estate sector. AM is installing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in its new-build projects, including in Cruquiuswerf, making it the first area developer to contribute to the creation of a nationwide AED network of 24/7 registered AEDs.
All owner-occupied and rental homes and commercial spaces are well insulated and equipped with an individual air/water heat pump. The roofs are equipped with plants and/or solar panels. With the application of the air/water heat pump, the homes and commercial spaces are equipped without gas.
