The new property investment firm set up by the internationally renowned theatre impresario Joop van den Ende is in exclusive talks with two hospitals over the development of so-called ‘healthcare boulevards’, reports Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.
The news comes from Alexander Lubberhuizen, director of Van den Ende’s property company Living City Property Performance, in an interview with the FD.
Lubberhuizen declined to name the hospitals involved but said the idea was to create a building complex around the hospitals to offer a wide range of health-related services.
Central to the concept is the construction of ‘healthcare hotels’ where patients can recover from operations under medical supervision. There will also be apartments for people who need long-term medical care, Lubberhuizen told the paper.
Living City is developing a thematic approach to property development and as well as the healthcare sector, is in talks with the sport and entertainment sectors, says the FD. The paper says the company is involved in projects valued at a total of €1bn since its launch 18 months ago.
Meanwhile Van den Ende has left the daily operations of his theatre and television production company Stage Entertainment to the former chief of Holland Casino Henk Kivits, the paper says.
