Alderman gives go-ahead for Kernhemmerpark in Ede

News item, Area and Property Development

On Friday afternoon, Peter de Pater, alderman for spatial planning in Ede, ceremoniously gave the go-ahead for the construction of 29 homes in the Kernhemmerpark project in the Kernhem district. It concerns 6 end-of-terrace houses and 23 mid-terrace houses. All homes will be zero-energy and equipped with district heating. Kernhemmerpark is a project of development combination Kernhem CV, a partnership of area developer VanWonen and Van Campen Bouwgroep. All 29 homes have been sold.

A festive ceremony marked the start of construction of the Kernhemmerpark project. After the official programme, the future residents had the opportunity to get to know each other and share their first experiences while enjoying a drink. Alderman Peter de Pater congratulated the residents on their new homes: “As Ede’s town council, we are very pleased that once again many people have found a beautiful, sustainable new build home in Kernhem. They will get to enjoy living in the green environment Ede is known for.”

Kernhemmerpark: small scale and green
Kernhemmerpark is a small-scale new build project close to the Doesburgerdijk. Along this dike there is an ecozone with all kinds of animals and plants. This wildlife area is practically in the new residents’ backyards. Green verges, lots of trees and beech hedges enhance the green character of the neighbourhood. Mireille Jeurnink, VanWonen Director of Property Development: “In Kernhemmerpark, the focus is on creating a lush green environment. This place offers residents a fantastic opportunity for outdoor living, with the train station, shops and the forest within cycling distance. All this in a zero-energy home. Another wonderful project as part of our VanWonen mission: creating homes and living environments for the healthiest generations.”

True Kernhem character
As in the rest of Kernhem, most of the houses in the Kernhemmerpark project have a pitched roof with eaves. Richard te Vaarwerk, Technical Director of Van Campen Bouwgroep: “Kernhem’s character shines through in every corner: houses with pitched roofs and eaves. Still, each street has its own identity due to the use of variations in the roofs, accentuated bay windows and masonry details.”
The handover of the homes is scheduled from the end of the third quarter onwards to the fourth quarter of this year.
