More than 150 years ago, in 1868, about five hundred Amsterdam workers decided to put aside a dime a week, for a house. It was the start of the Amsterdam housing association Lieven de Key. Today, this foundation is still committed to starters with housing needs in Amsterdam.
Recently, the housing association was renamed to better reflect its past, history and future. The name ‘Woningstichting De Key’ was changed into the original ‘Lieven de Key’. The name had always remained in the statutes but hadn’t been used in the market for many years. This switch included a restyling and a complete renovation of the office.
