18 dec Sustainability made affordable at new campus for students and young professionals
The Amsterdam Climate & Energy Fund (ACEF) finances part of a sustainable campus of 869 homes and studio apartments in the Nieuw West urban district
The ACEF, in collaboration with the NIBC and BNG, has granted International Campus Netherlands (IC-Group) a 2-year construction loan for the construction of a sustainable apartment complex next to Lelylaan train station in Amsterdam West. The complex comprises 869 homes and studio apartments, of which 590 student flats, that will be let by student accommodation provider DUWO and 279 homes for young professionals.
Not only does the project meet a strong demand in student accommodation and living space in Amsterdam, but it also provides for a considerable sustainability component.
As part of this project, the developer strongly focused on optimising housing costs, in addition to reducing CO2 emissions. A specially designed pipeline system with individual metering for users has had a highly positive effect on the energy bill of residents.
The Lelylaan project will be linked up with Westpoort Warmte district heating and uses LED lighting in public spaces.
Not only does the Lelylaan project of IC-Group pursue the lowest possible energy performance coefficient (EPC value), the link-up with district heating is also entirely in keeping with the Sustainability Agenda of the Municipality of Amsterdam.
