Building your own loft together with other people over 55 on the Ringvaart canal in Watergraafsmeer (Amsterdam East)August 14th 2019
Decide for yourself how you live on the Ringvaart canal in Watergraafsmeer in Amsterdam East. It is possible if you participate in De Jonge Graaff construction group. This group of people aged 55 and over will realize a very sustainable airframe with five apartments and many extras on Ringdijk 44. The construction group is looking for two more enthusiastic buyers (over-55s) for the penthouse on the entire third floor and the smaller loft with sunny outdoor space on the first floor.
De Jonge Graaff: apartments for people over 55 on Ringvaart in Amsterdam East
The building of De Jonge Graaff will be located where a school once stood. Except for De Jonge Graaff, there is room for another building group and for individual self-builders. The location is fantastic: on the Ringdijk, with a view over the Ringvaart and near numerous facilities such as the Amstel station, tram and bus stops, supermarkets and the many shops of the Oostpoort shopping street and Linnaeusstraat. Well-known restaurants such as De Vergulde Eenhoorn and La Vallade are close by. Park Frankendael is a few minutes' walk away.
Hull lofts for people over 55 in Watergraafsmeer: organize and dismantle yourself
Five hull lofts of various sizes will be installed in the building. All with maximum sunlight in the home. At the front the houses get nice bay windows, so you can enjoy the view. The building will be very sustainable and energy-neutral (EPC: 0), with solar panels on the roof, individual air-heat pumps, sustainable and circular materials and lots of greenery. The design of the building is basically ready. Included in the hull are the water pipe, the sewer system and underfloor heating / cooling. As a buyer, you determine the layout and finishing of your own home entirely by yourself. You can use the expertise of project architect Bets & Oudendorp Architects. The two still available houses will have a ceiling height of 3.2 meters (the penthouse) and 2.85 meters (loft on the first floor).
Communal storage, private parking
The building will have a communal storage room with washing machine and bicycle storage that can be accessed from the rear. You have your own parking space in the inner area, which can be reached via an underpass in the middle of the building. Construction will start in November 2019. The building is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
