Vesteda and Meacasa sign for 31 energy-neutral all-electric homes in Heerhugowaard
Residential real estate investor Vesteda has signed a contract with project developer Meacasa from Nijkerk for the turnkey acquisition of 31 energy-neutral all-electric houses. The homes will be built in the new neighbourhood development De Draai in Heerhugowaard. Construction has already started and delivery is expected in the first half of 2019.
The homes are being realised in the Dotterbloem Erf area of De Draai. The homes have an average floor space of 123 m2. Rents will be in the mid-segment of the market. The homes are highly energy-efficient and will be built without any natural gas connections. Lautenbag Architectuur is responsible for the urban planning and design of the homes.
Pieter Knauff, director Acquisitions at Vesteda: “The project is a good fit with the growing demand for affordable rental homes in Heerhugowaard. The city centre and railway station are easily accessible and at the same time these sustainable homes are close to the outer area. An attractive addition to our portfolio.”
Harold Pieters, founder and director of Meacasa: "We are also very pleased with Vesteda as a reliable and sustainable partner for the purchase of our energy-neutral homes. It is interesting to see that Vesteda also manages to realise its sustainability ambitions with one of our sustainable projects in the mid rental segment. Whether it concerns owner-occupied or rental homes; our complete development stock is energy-neutral."
