2.12 Parc Loft
Living in the Elements, in touch with nature. Imagine living somewhere surrounded by trees and waking up to the sound of birdsong. Like the other Parc properties, you are surrounded by green space. A communal courtyard and roof garden allow you to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, in your own building.
The Parc Loft is on the second floor of Elements and accessible via the courtyard. The south and south-west aspect means that your apartment basks in sunlight and overlooks the water.
The Parc Loft is designed widthways; the living room and two bedrooms are next to each other, and all have a fabulous view of the Duivendrechtsevaart canal. The kitchen overlooks the colourful courtyard. The south/south-west-facing balcony leads off the living room and catches the afternoon and evening sun.
As with most properties in Amsterdam, Elements properties involve a ground lease. Elements comes under the new perpetual ground lease system. The purchase sum excludes the annual ground rent of €5,730,-. The annual ground rent is in principle tax deductible.
Residents of apartments can buy a parking space in the communal garage. A parking space costs €55,000, excluding ground rent and contribution to the homeowners’ association (VvE).
Contribution to the homeowners’ association (VvE)
A draft budget has been compiled for the homeowners’ association. An indication of the monthly contribution for an apartment is €2.90 per m2 of living space, and approx. €130 per parking space.
Formed by the elements
Elements Amsterdam is being built in a prime prominent position on the River Amstel, in the Amstel neighbourhood, close to Bella Vista Park. It is a uniquely designed, award-winning building. Elements was not shaped on the drawing board but by combining data in a 3D model. Aspects such as the orbit around the sun, daylight, the effect of wind, and power generation were all taken into account. The resulting building is in balance with the elements, devoid of sharp corners, and with striking bronze-coloured horizontal lines. The contours of the building blend in with the surroundings, creating the optimum living experience.
Living in Elements means living in a building with unprecedented benefits. The 70-metre-high tower will house 70 owner-occupier apartments and 70 middle-sector rented apartments. Elements will have its own swimming pool with a view of the River Amstel. The building will also have several roof gardens. Lovely places to sit back and relax. The ground floor of Elements will accommodate businesses, such as co-working spaces, and a friendly bar.
Elements is climate-positive in terms of energy: a lot of the building’s energy requirements will be generated sustainably by integrated solar panels in the edges of the balconies. In addition, sustainable wood will be used in the building to reduce the carbon footprint, and the green roof gardens will help to lower heat stress in the city.
Just five minutes away from the A2 motorway, Amsterdam Amstel mainline station and Spaklerweg metro station.
The apartments in Elements are due to be completed by late 2025.
