NSI has opened HNK-R (The New Office Rotterdam) on October 18. HNK-R is the first property in NSI's portfolio that has been transformed on the basis of its HNK ('The New Office') concept.
The HNK concept anticipates the growing need for full service and flexible concepts in the office market. HNK-R provides flexibility in rental space and duration, ICT facilities, meeting rooms, meeting accommodations, flexible workplaces, catering and support services in the 18,000 m² office building. NSI will continue to roll out the HNK concept in its Dutch office portfolio.
Johan Buijs, CEO of NSI comments: "Our HNK concept targets tenants for whom service and flexibility are key, but who also admire an inspiring and vibrant place to work and meet. With HNK we tap into the rental requirements of the growing number of self-employed professionals and SME companies- the growth engine of the Dutch economy.
"Because the tenants pay only for what they actually use, we offer an attractive alternative at a top location. For NSI, this proposition is attractive because we, in cooperation with our operating partner SKEPP, can increase our revenues per square meter compared with a traditional rent model. Through our integral leasing strategy, we have all the skills in-house to complete transformations like this, cost effectively, in only a few months time."
NSI aims to transform approximately 15% of its Dutch office portfolio into HNK offices, for which the focus is on the major cities. In addition, NSI will selectively launch a HNK 'light' concept in business park office locations.
