CBRE Global Investors signs lease for new Schiphol Airport headquarters
The Hague, 21/03/2012 - CBRE Global Investors has signed the contract for its new EMEA headquarters at the World Trade Centre (WTC) at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
The deal sees the company move to 3,430 sq m office space, divided over three floors at the WTC on a 10 year lease. The WTC office complex is owned and developed by the CBRE Dutch Office Fund and Schiphol Real Estate, Schiphol Group’s real estate subsidiary. Plans for a new headquarters were prompted by the merger between CBRE Investors and ING REIM in November 2011, which sees the company move from its former offices in The Hague.
Pieter Hendrikse, CEO of CBRE Global Investors EMEA, said: "This move to the World Trade Centre at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol gives us an international base which is very central, independent and accessible location for our people and clients alike visiting from the Netherlands and from abroad. The new offices will house our company’s EMEA head office functions as well as the Dutch business. In London, Paris, Milan and Frankfurt similar projects have been initiated to integrate both businesses at one location. We expect these projects to be finalised before summer, except for London, which is anticipated to move after the summer.
The relocation is a further sign of the successful integration following the merger of the two businesses late last year. These offices will introduce a new working style for our people, which will be exciting and inspiring. They will also be a reflection of the strong identity and values of CBRE Global Investors for those who work at or visit the new headquarters.”
Hans Copier, Country Manager Netherlands comments: “I am very pleased with the upcoming move to the WTC Schiphol. It is a very central location in the Netherlands, with excellent infrastructure. The working environment will be professional, open and transparent representing our core company values.”
CBRE Global Investors plans to move into the new offices in the second quarter of 2012. CBRE Global Investors was advised by CBRE during this transaction.
