Housing corporation Woonbedrijf has selected Dutch construction company Heijmans as a partner for the €100m development of the Humperdincklaan area in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

The development concerns the location of the former Grafisch Lyceum and the former International School between Karel de Grotelaan and Humperdincklaan and the adjoining the roundabout in Eindhoven.

The project involves the development of about 500 rental and owner-occupied homes and creating extra affordable housing for a range of target groups in the Gestel district.

Heijmans said in a statement: “Heijmans was selected because of its extensive knowledge and experience in area development and district restructuring. This has enabled Woonbedrijf to bring the knowledge of infrastructure, development and construction of the project under one umbrella.

“Heijmans’ proposal for the deployment of these disciplines and the project’s cooperation method received positive approval. Both parties will jointly work out the project plans over the coming months.”

Woonbedrijf and Heijmans, in consultation with the municipality of Eindhoven, plan to complete the project in phases.

Last year, Heijmans had signed a letter of intent with the Municipality of Vlaardingen to construct around 400 homes under a project, valued at €80m to €100m, on a former Vijfsluizen sports park.

The project aims to transform the former sports park into a sustainable and future-proof district with primarily ground-floor homes and apartments.

Heijmans said it would also transform the old Shell sports building at the site. Room will be created for public green space and water in the new district.
