With the completion of 38 studios in the social housing sector, B-Right Urban Living has completed the first phase of its project at Stationsplein in Sittard. The realization of the complex at Stationsplein has restored the cityscape at this central location in the heart of Sittard. After completion, the homes have been added to the portfolio of Mosaic Microliving, which now consists of over 3,000 rental homes, the majority of which are in the social housing sector.
After an intensive demolition of the existing buildings on the site, construction company Hendriks Gemert started the construction of 38 studios for single and two-person households in early 2022. The complex harmoniously fits into the existing structure at Stationsplein, partly due to the fact that the homes on the fourth floor have spacious rooftop terraces. The vertical articulation in the form of pilasters is a nod to the former facade in this location. The keystone on the pilasters displays the coat of arms of Sittard. Combined with the large facades and French balconies, a stately whole is created, providing high-quality living spaces for the studios. The facade panels in green and blue shades make each studio recognizable and give the overall appearance a fresh look. The studios are rented furnished through Plaza Resident Services.
Pressure on the housing market
"With the completion of phase 1 and the start of construction for phase 2, we are providing a total of 65 affordable rental homes for a target group that is currently facing significant challenges. The number of households is also increasing in Sittard, and the housing market is under pressure. We are aware that this is just a drop in the ocean, but in this way, we are trying to contribute our part to the solution of the housing crisis in the Netherlands," stated Olaf Terpstra, Director B-Right Urban Living.
