Although Almere Haven was built behind the dike, a small part is located outside the dikes: the Havenkom and the Kustzone. This is an area with, among other things, nature, a beach, a marina, numerous water sports facilities, recreational facilities, homes and restaurants. Unique in its diversity and quality, both for residents and day trippers. Nowhere in the city district is the connection with the water so great. The Coastal Zone is already the eye-catcher of Almere Haven. To further strengthen the green-blue qualities of the area, there is the Almere Haven Coastal Zone Development Plan . This plan also provides for the arrival of a high-quality living environment.
Almere Haven: a place of pioneers
The construction of Almere began in Almere Haven. It is the place of pioneers par excellence. Many of those pioneers came to the space and the greenery. They founded their families there, founded associations and often stayed. They are very involved with their district. That is why the residents have been the most important discussion partner in making the plan for the Coastal Zone.
Plan Art Zone: high-quality living environment at the marina
The plan area is approximately 35 hectares and is therefore situated outside the dikes. It will be a high-quality living environment with attraction for new residents from the (wide) environment. At the same time, the green-blue qualities are given a boost, so that the recreational opportunities are improved. Is that possible together? Yes, by clustering the new buildings and keeping the green-blue area open as much as possible. The new homes come around the marina. This is a great place to live: on the water, close to amenities and in the countryside.
Construction of first homes expected in 2021
The plan involves the construction of around 80 single-family homes and around 140 apartments, all of which are expensive and medium-length. There will also be around 20 homes in the social price range. The construction of the first subplan ('development field') is expected to start in 2021. This concerns land-bound homes. The construction of the apartments is expected around 2022-2023. The municipality is currently working on project planning, including investigations and procedures.
