DUBLIN, NOVEMBER 2022: Fast-expanding aparthotel operator Staycity Group is to open a Wilde Aparthotel property in the new-build district of Overhoeks in the borough of Amsterdam-Noord. The 120-apartment Wilde will be part of the 31-storey residential and business Yvie complex, currently under construction by Union Investment (see photo above). Due to open in May 2024, the Wilde Aparthotel will offer long-stays – from seven days to 12 months – and feature a coffee shop, gym and roof terrace. The property is a five-minute walk to a ferry crossing the IJ river, with onward travel from nearby Central Station.
The construction of the residential and business Overhoeks district, a former site of oil giant Shell, began in 2005 and will continue until 2026 with a strong focus on sustainability as well as providing leisure facilities and cultural attractions.
“Amsterdam is the perfect addition to our Wilde portfolio, particularly this spectacular building in such a vibrant, up-and-coming modern area,” commented Staycity Group CEO and co-founder Tom Walsh. “Staycity now has nearly 6,000 apartments across 32 properties with our growth plans soon to take in Portugal as well as additional sites in London, Paris, and Munich, so we’re delighted to be adding the Netherlands to our portfolio.”
Markus Beike, Staycity’s development director Germany and CEE, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Union Investment on this landmark property in one of Europe’s most popular cities. Wilde offers something a little bit different, appealing to both business and leisure travellers looking for great quality, contemporary self-catering apartments that stand out from the crowd – the perfect fit for this sophisticated location.”
