Colliers International sells first new-build complexes to Heimstaden

Heimstaden has bought two complexes in Bilthoven and Bussum for 23.5 million euros. The complexes must offer a total of 104 homes. In Bussum, it concerns the first new-build homes -after transformation- of the originally Swedish residential investor in the Netherlands.

The landlord signed a purchase agreement with Parelvisser Vastgoed, a subsidiary of Posthoorn Vastgoed from Epe. The purchase in Bilthoven involves 48 existing homes. The complex on Hugo van der Goeslaan will be made more sustainable in the coming months. At the end of the year, the houses in the complex in the Utrecht town will therefore all have energy label A or B.

Transformation project
The purchase in Bussum is a transformation project, the development has already started. The delivery of these homes will take place at the end of 2020 or early 2021. The landlord buys two of the three towers in a complex on Olmenlaan there. These were used as office space, but will be transformed into apartments in the coming months. 53 apartments in Bussum are homes in the mid-rental segment and three social rental apartments. All homes have energy label A upon delivery.

New homes
"The housing shortage is a major challenge facing the Netherlands, and we want to contribute to reducing the structural imbalance between supply and demand," says Simon Kuijs, investment manager at Heimstaden. "We are therefore very pleased to make our first contribution to adding new homes to the market in Bussum and have the ambition to take further steps here in the future."

Serve customers yourself
Heimstaden entered the Dutch housing market in 2018, and has since expanded its supply here to more than 12,700 homes. The organization has indicated several times that it has come here with a long-term vision, and will manage the majority of its homes itself from various regional offices in the coming year.

In the recent transaction, Parelvisser Vastgoed was assisted in the transaction by Colliers International. Heimstaden was legally assisted by Loyens and Loeff.
