In 2007, Ymere acquired the former Groenoordhallen in Leiden with the aim of initiating an area development project and expanding its presence in Leiden. In 2012, Ymere completed the first homes of Phase 1. Phase 2, encompassing an impressive 18,747 square meters of building area, will consist of a variety of apartment types, including social housing, free-market rentals, and for-sale apartments, along with associated parking facilities. For Phase 3, covering approximately 2,174 square meters of building area, the primary objective is to develop single-family homes. However, as Ymere's primary focus lies within its core region, the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, Leiden no longer falls within its operational scope. Consequently, the site no longer aligns with its strategic objectives and has been sold to Ballast Nedam Development.
The program consists of approximately 255 residential units, including 75 social housing apartments. Additionally, there is approximately 1,250 square meters of office space and a significant requirement for (built) parking facilities. The area is located in proximity to Leiden Central Station, serving as a connection between the city center of Leiden and the Merenwijk district in the northern part of Leiden.
RYSE was commissioned by Ymere as an advisor responsible for the tender strategy and tender management. The chosen approach was an 'as is, where is' strategy.
At the site of the former Groenoord Halls, a strategy has been adopted that appeals to the imagination and innovation capacity of market parties.
