COAST | SOLD

On the street-facing side, vertical windows alternate with black aluminium to create harmony and balance, as well as a sense of privacy and comfort. The style of the building changes as you get closer to the water, with the windows growing larger and shifting from a vertical orientation to a horizontal one. As a result, all 19 apartments offer spectacular views of the IJ river and Amsterdam.
KAAP is to be built on own land, so there will be no leasehold. This is remarkable for Amsterdam, especially for new-builds. Buyers can relish the prospect of saving thousands of euros a year in leasehold payments, not to mention the other benefits of building on private land. For instance, owners will benefit from any increase in lot value and prices will not be negatively affected by leasehold.
A spacious parking garage for residents’ cars, bikes and scooters will be built below the buildings, in addition to a second, separate garage. All residents are given the option to purchase permanent parking spaces, as well as a charging station for electric vehicles. The storage rooms are also located in this basement, which is equipped with a speedgate with license plate recognition to provide quick access and make residents feel welcome.
