The Roofs in The Hague latest expansion in MyPup’s portfolio
Amsterdam [18-10-2022]- MyPup, My Pick Up Point, as logistics partner of investor CBRE Investment Management (hereafter CBRE IM) has been offering their smart parcel point solution since this summer also in The Hague’s new residential project ‘The Roofs’. MyPup drastically reduces the number of parcel couriers driving into the city daily to just one courier, thus reducing CO2 emissions and increasing safety on the streets. With this location, the eighth Pick Up Point has been opened in a residential location of CBRE IM’s residential investment platform in the Netherlands and is planned in all future residential developments.
All delivery services first deliver to a MyPup hub on the outskirts of the city, after which parcels are taken by electric transport to unmanned pick-up points. Residents can collect their parcels from the locker the same day, at a time convenient to them. MyPup currently operates in more than 300 locations in the Netherlands and internationally in London, Berlin, Munich, and Dublin.
Sustainable ambitions and liveable cities As a logistics service provider, MyPup has been working with CBRE IM since April 2021. Frank Aalbers, Head of Asset Management Residential: “We create nice, healthy, and sustainable places for the residents in our residential complexes. We do this with all kinds of extra services. An example is The Roofs in The Hague, where all this comes together. It is a dynamic place in the middle of the city, where we offer a place for everyone, from social rent, and a large part of middle rent to luxury flats. All homes are gas-free and built to very sustainable standards, and the services are sustainable such as shared mobility and so is the smart MyPup concept. It is an important way to enhance the liveability in our complexes and in the city.” Rapid registration by residents The Roofs consists of two towers, the first tower with 265 homes, and the second tower with 390 homes, with both towers featuring a MyPup vault wall. Martijn van Schaveren, co-founder MyPup explains, “We are very happy with the installation of our solution in this beautiful project. Meanwhile, both towers are already occupied and we see that MyPup adoption is going very well. In fact, in the first few weeks, 75% of residents have already signed up.” Designed by architecture firm MVDRV, the two residential towers will provide housing for a total of about 1,300 residents. Finally, Van Schaveren said, “As a brand, we are keen to make a big impact in our beautiful cities and we are therefore very happy to partner with a leading party such as CBRE IM to build a sustainable future.”
