A unique spot on the banks of the IJ, a stone’s throw from the centre, with magnificent views that change by the minute. Here, sailing yachts alternate with cargo ships, languidly gliding past the city skyline. Living here brings vibrant tranquility, inspiration, and energy. KAAP consists of five distinctive, small-scale buildings with panoramic apartments that offer wide vistas across the IJ and Amsterdam, and will soon be enveloped by the Oeverpark, a green zone stretching along the IJ featuring a remarkable hospitality pavilion. Space, sunlight and daylight in spades. Welcome to KAAP.
KAAP’s unique location calls for unique architecture. The five small-scale, exclusive residential buildings were designed by three different architectural firms, each with their own vision of living and design. Horn and York were designed by Orange Architect, with Powerhouse Company working on Coast and Verde and Next Architects creating Blanc. The result can rightfully be called special: a set of five iconic residential buildings with their own character and identity, combining to form an imposing, uniform whole. The five buildings will be home to 70 apartments, which will be built in several phases. The apartments in Coast and Horn will be offered for sale first.
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.
