We are working on plans for Wibaut and AIVM for a one of a kind residential concept entitled ‘1828’. The location, located at the Westelijke Randweg 1 in Overveen, will house rental apartments with shared facilities specially aimed for young adults in the age between 18 and 28.
The intention is to build over a 100 apartments (20-50 m2) around a central void space. Aspect of importance in this concept is that we will be building 'in-house’ facilities that can be shared. They include a multimedia lounge, a launderette, sports facilities, a shared roof terrace and shared electric cars.
The Bloemendaal municipality is facing a double challenge: houses are needed (especially affordable ones) while the green qualities of Bloemendaal need to be preserved. The 1828 concept ties in with the aim of the Bloemendaal municipality for a greater variety of housing and the need for houses in the starter and mid-price segments.
“The 1828 concept caters for the growing mismatch in Bloemendaal and surroundings between the supply and demand for affordable housing for single and two-person households,“ says Ernest van der Meijde, owner of Wibaut Projectontwikkeling. “However, 1828 goes beyond that. It also caters for a number of other trends that matter to young people such as sharing, sustainability and coherence.”
Social and mid-price rent
The starting principle is that at least two-thirds of houses fall in the social rent sector and the other houses in the mid-price rent sector, all with a low energy consumption. Sharing facilities will also help with saving cost for the future tenants; buy your own washing machine or car is not needed.
The 1828 concept is a proposal that we want to extend together with the local authorities, local and future residents in order to make it tie in even better with the ‘Bloemendaal standard’. Negotiations with the local authorities are in full swing and there will be information sessions for local residents.
