Press Release: Heijmans to construct 350 apartments in two residential towers in Rotterdam Katendrecht district

 
   Heijmans and IC Netherlands have signed an agreement for the development 
and construction of approximately 350 rental apartments in the 
Municipality of Rotterdam. Two residential towers will be constructed 
along the Bananenstraat in the Katendrecht district, under contract to 
IC Netherlands. The project is expected to be completed in October 2019. 
 
   The apartment complex will be given a sturdy and robust appearance that 
matches the other buildings in the Katendrecht district. The apartments 
are specifically intended to encourage highly educated individuals just 
starting a new job to stay in the city for a longer period of time and 
to anticipate the increase of this target group on the housing market 
this way. Common functions, such as a cooking studio and flexible 
working spaces offer residents additional comfort and reinforce social 
bonds. The buildings will also have facilities such as a restaurant, a 
dry cleaner, a bicycle shed and a parking facility. 
 
   The project fits into the Municipality of Rotterdam's zoning plan. 
Heijmans expects to be able to start construction in the course of 2017. 
 
   Katendrecht Area Development 
 
   Katendrecht has been undergoing a true metamorphosis since 2000. The 
large-scale redevelopment of the port area into a residential and 
working area focuses on attracting residents, entrepreneurs and 
visitors. Heijmans previously redeveloped the Parkkwartier and the 
Laakkwartier in cooperation with the Municipality of Rotterdam and 
Woonstad Rotterdam. Heijmans is currently constructing 78 rental and 134 
owner-occupied apartments in the Fenixloodsen in Katendrecht. The 
long-term, intensive involvement of Heijmans in the transformation of 
Katendrecht emphasizes the company's strength as an inner city area 
developer.
