"Between now and 2020 a large number of leases will expire. The majority of tenants will reconsider their accommodation. Given the current vacancy rate, the outdated office stock and the demand for a different type of office space, the ball is now in the court of owners and the municipality. They will have to continue to make major investments in order to retain and attract tenants.
Transformation and renovation at good locations are essential in this respect. Rotterdam Central Business District, Kop van Zuid and Alexandrium in particular will grow in popularity among tenants because of their accessibility and multifunctional nature."
Marco Clarijs, Director, Rotterdam Office
With more than 625,000 inhabitants, Rotterdam is the second biggest city in the Netherlands. As the largest port of Europe, it is a key driver of the economy of the city and our country. Large Dutch and international organisations also have their base in the city on the River Maas.
The Rotterdam region has a number of office and business locations. Particularly important are the Rotterdam Central Business District and Kop van Zuid, as well as various locations along the Rotterdam ring road.
CBRE has had an office in the Central Post building in Rotterdam since 2010. The office is a remarkable mixture of the Rotterdam work attitude, elements from the former mail sorting centre and CBRE's international professionalism. The building is all about cooperation and openness, which also characterise CBRE's approach.
Our team in Rotterdam has a strong bond with the city and knows the local property market inside out. We keep an eye on all commercial property: large and small office buildings, industrial buildings and logistics centres, healthcare locations and shops. We know them all, whether they are in Coolsingel, Het Weena, Kop van Zuid, Brainpark or in the Greater Rotterdam region.
We are very much committed to our Rotterdam clients, and are always looking to deliver added value. We do so as part of the contract, and also by bringing organisations into contact with one another. We are proud that with this hard-working team we have quickly become the market leader in Rotterdam office leasing.
