Completion level of the apartment

    The expectation for phase 1 is Autumn 2018 and phase 2 Summer 2019.
    We will inform all tenants at least 4 weeks in advance about the date of key transfer.

    As this project involves new homes and contractors are currently hard at work at the construction site, there are naturally very strict rules in place where entering the site is concerned. We will be organising open afternoons as soon as this is possible. You decide if you want to rent the apartment from floorplan.


    No rights can be claimed from floorplans, pictures and advertisements.

    The walls will be finished with wallpaper. You can decorate the inside of your apartment according to your own taste. Just consider when you terminate your rental contract the apartment has to be delivered in the original state. It is not allowed to drill in floors and tails.

    You will always find some so-called shrinkage tears in new buildings. This is unavoidable and the tears sometimes won’t appear and become visible for several months after completion. Any required ‘removal’ of these will be the tenant’s responsibility.

    This is not possible. All the apartments will have a luxury modern Sfinx bathroom and a Bruynzeel kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with Siemens appliances. The kitchen and bathroom layout you will find on the floorplan.
