Zeist, 15 december 2017 – Triodos Vastgoedfonds N.V., Triodos Investment Management’s sustainable real estate fund, has rented out her office building located at Blaeulaan 60A in Utrecht (circa 1,339 m2 and 14 parking spaces) for a period of 10 years at competitive conditions to Fugro NL Land BV. Fugro will be renting the building as of 15 December 2017.
The rental agreement with the previous tenant ended at 1 November 2017. Following a proactive approach of the fund, the building will have a new tenant within only 6 weeks.
Both tenant and Triodos Vastgoedfonds are striving to improve the energy label to an A++ (currently A+), for instance through adding LED lighting and solar panels. The intentions regarding the sustainable usage and management of the property have been documented in the ‘Green Lease’ contract. This rental agreement demonstrates the fund’s capability to adequately and quickly anticipate tenants needs, while at the same time enhancing its strategy to further improve the portfolio’s sustainability.
The adjacent property Blaeulaan 60 is still available for rent. This property will be restyled in the coming months and improved from a sustainability perspective to an A+ label (currently D). Spaces are available starting from 350 m2.
Ans de Wijn Bedrijfshuisvesting B.V. represented Triodos Vastgoedfonds and Rob Swart Bedrijfshuisvesting represented the tenant.
