The Tugela Project is located at a beautiful location on the Tugelaweg, Retiefstraat and the Cillierstraat in the popular Transvaal district in Eastern Amsterdam. Tugela is one of a number of characteristic buildings from 1917. Major renovations are currently underway. The facade will be brought back to its former glory, and the apartments will be remodeled to meet modern demands. Residents will have access to the courtyard garden. From the front, there is an unobstructed view of the green urban setting.

The building is comprised of approximately 170 apartments, of which 88 will be offered for sale. It is our privilege to offer for sale 30 apartments from the first stage of the project (several types). The layout of the apartments is extremely practical and spacious. Nearly all apartments have outdoor areas, either in the form of a garden of a good-sized balcony.

Tugela features 2-, 3- and 4-room apartments, the apartments will be renovated to shell condition and will be sold as such. The apartments on the attic floor will be fitted with roof insulation and are also offered in shell condition. The remaining apartments are on the ground floor and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. The basic structure will be brought to standard, leaving the finishes to buyers. The properties are insulated, will have fully renewed electrics, water and natural gas fittings, central heating and will be prepared for the installation of a kitchen, toilet and bathroom. Tiling and bathroom fixtures, wall finishes and a floating screed floor and floor finishes are not included. For more information about the apartment types, please consult the project website.

The location

Tugela is on Tugelaweg, around the corner from Oostpoort shopping center. A mere 10-minute bicycle ride to Amsterdam’s city center and a few minutes’ drive to the A10 beltway. In the immediate proximity of the property, you will find a host of on-trend restaurants and cafes, with countless options to relax with a cappuccino or to grab a bite to eat. Just a few examples: Brouwerij Poesiat & Kater, Michel-Inn and Spaghetteria. Take a leisurely stroll in recently renewed Oosterpark or gorgeous nearby Frankendael landscape park. All these ingredients make this a fabulous place to live!

Connectivity is also excellent. Public transportation (multiple metro, tram, and bus lines) will take you to the city in no time and by car, the A10 beltway and A2 highway are only a few minutes away.

These properties will be sold on the basis of asking prices. Prices for the ground floor and the above floors start from € 285,000 costs-to buyer (k.k.). Asking prices for the 4th and attic floor apartments start from € 250,000 costs-to-buyer (k.k.). For the attic floor, higher finishing costs should be taken into account.
