  • Breevast legt polderdak van 2150 m2 aan op de Zuidas

    Op de Zuidas heeft vastgoedeigenaar Breevast een polderdak laten aanleggen door de Dakdokters i.s.m. Karres en Brands. Dit dakpark is 2150 m2 groot waarvan 1600 m2 groen, waar alle medewerkers en bewoners van het pand van kunnen genieten. Door de groene en aantrekkelijke uitstraling nodigt het polderdak uit om te verblijven, recreëren en een rondje te lopen. Deze attractieve extra verdieping is een meerwaarde voor Breevast. Het doet denken aan de High Line in New York, hetgeen ook de wens was vanuit Breevast. En dat is gelukt! Daarnaast biedt het dak verkoeling, draagt het bij aan de biodiversiteit en houdt het water vast en vertraagt de waterafvoer.
       
    Dit dakpark is mede mogelijk gemaakt door financiering vanuit de Gemeente Amsterdam in de vorm van de subsidie voor groene daken. Daarnaast draagt Waternet financieel bij aan het besturingssysteem om van het groene dak een polderdak te maken. Door slim te sturen kan het groene dak zoveel mogelijk regen bergen tijdens een hevige regenbui. Op een rustiger moment kan het water vervolgens worden afgevoerd of gebruikt voor de bewatering van de planten. Het dak heeft een waterbergend vermogen van 70 l/m2.
       
    Door de realisatie van dit polderdak is Green Business Club (GBC) Zuidas weer een stap dichterbij haar ambitie om voor 2020 25.000m2 polderdak te realiseren. GBC Zuidas is een impactorganisatie die duurzame projecten initiëren. Zij hebben de ambitie om samen met hun participanten van de Zuidas het meest duurzame internationale zakelijke hart van Nederland te maken.

  • Sale of part of RAC-BELAIR Project (13,200 m2) in Brussels by Breevast and Immobel

    Amsterdam/Brussels, December 6, 2016 – Together with its partner Immobel, real estate developer and investor Breevast has completed the sale and transfer of part of the RAC-BELAIR project located in Brussels. The shares in RAC 2 N.V., the owner of the ‘Belair’ building, were transferred by shareholders Breevast (60%) and Immobel (40%) to the German investor REAL I.S. SMART. The underlying value of the property amounts to EUR 59M.

    Last July, an eighteen-year lease for the entire ‘Belair’ building Brussels was concluded with the Hoofdstedelijk Gewest (Brussels Capital Region). The office building, consisting of 9,500 m² office space, 3,700 m² archive space as well as 35 parking spaces, will be deployed part for part. As from the beginning of 2018 the building will house the new ‘Veiligheids’-hoofdkwartier (Safety Headquarters), consisting of the newly founded department Brussels Preventie & Veiligheid (Prevention & Safety, BPS) and several other related regional departments. The building has been awarded the BREEAM certificate ‘very good’.

    Last month, Breevast also divested its 60% interest in the residential part of the RAC-BELAIR Project to Belgian property developers Skyline en Group Minerva. The sale concerned the transfer of all the shares held by Breevast in the development comprising approximately 45,000 m2 apartments, 5,000 m2 retail, school facilities comprising circa 7,500 m2  as well as over 600 parking spaces. Co-shareholder Immobel (40%) did not dispose of its interest.

    Both the ‘Belair’ building and the residential section of the RAC-BELAIR Project form part of the comprehensive transformation of the former Rijksadministratief Centrum (RAC, State Administrative Centre), located strategically in the heart of the Belgian capital known as the Vijfhoek (‘Pentagon’). In total, the (re)development of the RAC-BELAIR site covers approximately 150,000 square meter and a parking garage consisting of 1,300 parking spaces minimum. Central to the transformation have been important guidelines like mobility, sustainability and mixing of functions.

    Adjacent to the RAC-BELAIR the Finance Tower is situated, an office building which is also owned by Breevast. The Finance Tower, comprising approximately 200,000 m2,  has been leased out to the Regie der Gebouwen (Buildings Agency) until 2035.

  • Sale of Metropool Building in Amsterdam by consortium under management of Breevast

    Amsterdam, September 6, 2016 – A consortium led by Breevast has transferred the Metropool Building, located at Weesperstraat 61-105, Amsterdam, to an investment company of Standard Life Investments at a transfer price of approximately EUR 45 million. 

    The consortium bought the building consisting of circa 14.000 m2 in 2008, at which time the ground floor housed several retailers whereas part of the administration of the Amsterdam Municipality formed the main tenant of the office floors above. After the departure of the Amsterdam Municipality as a tenant in 2014 the building has been completely renovated, whereby a part of over 6.000 m2 was transformed to a Zoku extended stay hotel comprising around 130 rooms. The Zoku hotel opened in the second quarter of 2016. The remaining circa 6.000 m² were rented on a long term lease to a new branch of WeWork, an American flexible office space operator. HIGH 45 has started a ‘high intensity fitness studio’ on the ground floor.

    Through the sale and transfer of the building to Standard Life Investments the refurbishment and transformation of the Metropool Building has been concluded successfully. Apart from the majority shareholder Breevast the consortium effecting the sale consists of  Beleggingsmaatschappij Andantino and an investment company owned by the Ljungberg family from Sweden.
