Green Living

The Yard is a unique property development in the Reitdiepzone, a brand-new residential area close to the centre of Groningen. The Yard offers spacious, green and high-quality housing, situated directly on the water, adjacent to a green zone.

The Yard has 160 sizable apartments, ranging from 50 to 115 square metres. Gas-free and energy efficient, the building features a large inner garden. With an underground parking garage for 181 cars and over 500 bicycles, and great accessibility to public and private transport.

Waterfront Property

The Yard is located directly on the Reitdiep waterway. Dating back to the 13th century, it served as an important trade route for ships supplying the city of Groningen. With the transformation of the Reitdiepzone from an industrial zone to a residential area, the waterfront is being redeveloped as a continuous green zone, with broad footpaths and bike lanes, perfect for recreation. Soon, the residents of The Yard will be able to enjoy peaceful wide-open views of slow boats sailing past.

Green Living

In keeping with the newest findings on energy efficiency and green living, The Yard implements countless environmentally-friendly practices in both construction and finishing. The gas-free design is constructed with optimum use of wind, light and climate conditions in mind and maximises the use of green materials. The Yard also features a beautifully designed communal inner garden facing the Reitdiep waterway, offering splendid views of lush green foliage year-round.

Spacious Apartments

Living in The Yard offers significantly more space compared to housing in similar developments in Groningen. The units in The Yard have an average LFA of 82 sqm, ranging in size from 2 to 4 rooms and 50 to 115 square metres. Each apartment comes with spacious storage and its own terrace, balcony or loggia. Several units even feature double outdoor spaces.
