Creating the next generation of mixed-use (rental) housing
The core of cities are the people who live there. As the population is increasing, cities must adapt to accommodate growth. One of the challenges is to provide quality housing suitable for a changing demographic with a wide variety of households. For Redevco, in line with its mission to lead the transformation of cities to ensure they are sustainable and liveable, creating (rental) sustainable homes that cater for different audiences, is a key growth area.
Whether it is a greenfield development, or we are redeveloping an existing asset, we always look to build in the most sustainable fashion. In our ambition to ensure the asset we mange will be Net Zero Carbon by 2040, we seek solutions to reduce energy consumption and to use renewable energy sources. We will look at the building fabric, the building services and how the building is managed. When we design a project, in collaboration with our partners, we make sure that it will adhere to our urban living philosophy in which nature, simplicity, intimacy, and connection play a central role.
The built environment, responsible for more than 30% of global energy consumption, has a responsibility to find solutions and reduce carbon emissions. We believe that we can make a significant impact by improving the environmental performance of our assets under management.
Redevco Living is transforming a well-located suburban office area into a new urban neighbourhood. Amsterdam’s metro stop areas outside the ringroad have become popular for urban residents looking for living space just a few minutes away from Amsterdam’s historic city center. With Entrada, Redevco Living is creating an accessible and integrated residential neighbourhood precisely for this group of people. As we define a strategy for this area, we see potential for multiple concepts, including urban living.
Redevco acquired the Porseleinen Toren (Porcelain Tower) in an up-and-coming, sustainable district in the Dutch city of Delft. Built by partner Synchroon, one of the leading Dutch developers, the 40-metre high, energy-efficient complex includes 85 residential units.
As part of the HSK district in The Hague, situated along one of Holland’s busiest rail stations, Redevco Living will be developing a the 90,000 sqm new build development. The project aspires to be an enticing mix of working, living and leisure concepts. Walking distance to the centre, biking distance to the beach and just minutes away from the train that can take you to Paris or London within three hours, HSK is the most dynamic project to take place in The Hague for years.
Redevco recently acquired LIFE Europe, a Dutch residential real estate specialist. Moving forward, LIFE Europe will be known as Redevco Living, Redevco’s newly created residential development, investment, and operational platform. With the acquisition of LIFE Europe, Redevco gains capabilities to further expand its residential activities – a key growth area for Redevco, aligned with its mission to lead the transformation of cities to ensure they are sustainable and liveable.
