The former Diaconessenhuis hospital in Fonteynenburghlaan in Voorburg has been sold by the Reinier de Graaf Group to Woonhave Development B.V. in a sealed bidding process.
The sale concerns the existing building of approximately 16,000 m² and the surrounding plot of approximately 30,500 m². Woonhave plans to develop the site, in a unique location next to the river Vliet and surrounded by greenery, into homes. The redevelopment will provide space for new apartments and maisonettes of various types, sizes and price ranges. The ambitions for the area exploit the qualities of the location, and focus on connecting the new homes with the landscape, the surroundings and the river Vliet.
The new residential area will be built next to the new Voorburg Treatment Center that Reinier de Graaf Group opened in 2022. The changing demand for care and new methods of offering accessible care were behind the Reinier de Graaf Group’s decision to concentrate its branches, leaving the Diaconessenhuis hospital available for a new function.
As is customary in the disposal of property of healthcare institutions, the sales procedure was supervised by the College Sanering (a Dutch government institution) and approval granted. The deeds have since been transferred.
Nadorp Bedrijfsmakelaars advised the Reinier de Graaf Group in the sale, while Buren Legal provided legal assistance. The Group was systematically guided by De Mannen van Schuim.
Woonhave was advised during the planning and purchasing process by a large team of architects and advisors, including Groosman Architects and Houthoff. On behalf of Woonhave, WDevelop Vastgoedontwikkeling will supervise the development and prepare the project in collaboration with construction team partner Niersman. In the subsequent process, the municipality of Leidschendam – Voorburg will enter into a partnership with Woonhave.
