Aviva Investors has acquired the Strawinskylaan 10 building in Amsterdam from German real estate asset manager Deka Immobilien, on behalf of one of its clients. The building, which comprises over 8,100m² of modern office space, is located within the ‘South Axis’ business district of Amsterdam, a rapidly developing part of the city and considered, as being one of Europe’s most attractive office locations. It is currently fully occupied by an international law firm, under a long-term lease.
Strawinskylaan 10 has been awarded a BREEAM-NL In-Use certification, a leading benchmark in determining the sustainability of a building through its operational performance, whilst the standalone nature of the building in an area of skyscrapers and multi-tenant offices further adds to its relatively unique stature.
Daniel McHugh, Managing Director, Real Estate, at Aviva Investors, commented: “The South Axis of Amsterdam is one of Europe’s premier office locations and we are delighted to have acquired such a high-class asset in the district. Benefitting from excellent transport links and close proximity to both Schiphol airport and the centre of Amsterdam, this is a district which attracts internationally renowned businesses. We believe it has strong future growth potential, whilst continuing our preference for high specification assets in core locations. Our expectation is that it will provide predictable, long-term income within the portfolio.”
