Renovation of De Karel in full swing!

The transformation of the former municipal district office Zuid into 53 apartments is in full swing! The outer as well as inner demolition work has been completed. The renovation of the façade is almost complete. The plastic frames have been removed, the old joints have been ground down, bricks have been replaced where necessary, and the façade has also been impregnated. At present, the façade is being repointed and cleaned to restore it to its original condition. The roof over the 4th floor is being replaced to ensure that it can support the weight of the future roof garden for the residents. The wall installation activities have started on the 1st and 2nd floors.

The project in a nutshell:

– 53 two- and three-room apartments (mid-range rental)
– varying in size from 42 to 70 m²
– each with its own balcony, terrace or French balcony – shared roof garden
– rental prices starting at €900 exclusive of service costs, storeroom and parking space
– apartments to be delivered in May 2019

The preparations for renting the apartments are in full swing. The application process will start officially in January 2019.
