The demand for houses is growing, especially for one- and two person households, whereas Almere mainly has family houses. More rental houses and more diversity is needed.
In the development of areas like Stadstuinen Poort, this has been taken into account. Agreements have been made with the housing associations for more affordable rental properties. Empty offices are being transformed into dwellings, some properties are split into apartments and more temporary houses are build, all to increase the number of available houses. Projects like Tiny Housing and Who Cares are part of the search into innovative ideas and solutions.
