AMSTERDAM, 29 April 2020 – CBRE Global Investors and Bacardi-Martini B.V. have signed a long-term lease agreement for 1,547 sqm. office space in the ‘Delftse Poort’ office building at Weena 505 in Rotterdam.
The Delftse Poort office building was completely renovated from 2016 to 2019 and is now one of the best serviced multi-tenant buildings in Rotterdam. Since the completion of the renovation approximately 21,000 sqm has been let, with still approximately 9,500 sqm. available for rent. The office is located right next to Rotterdam Central Station and is also easily accessible by car.
Johan Van Vaerenbergh, Managing Director for Bacardi in the Benelux & Nordics, said: “For Bacardi, an office is more than a place of work, it’s a place where our teams and culture can thrive. The space at Delftse Poort gives us the flexibility to achieve this; we work hard and have a lot of fun too. It’s also as much about what lies outside as inside. Our team in Rotterdam only have to step out the door to be close to our consumers and customers – some of the best bars and restaurants in the Netherlands.”
Saskia de Nie, Asset Manager Offices CBRE Global Investors: “After the completion of the renovation works, we positioned the building as a multi-tenant full-service office building. This has resulted in a sharp increase in demand not only from large tenants, but also smaller office users, who prefer high-quality office space, as well as the services offering that is available in the building. We are very pleased that we can welcome Bacardi-Martini to Delftse Poort and enter into a long-term relationship with them.”
Bacardi-Martini is the largest family-owned spirits company in the world, with a portfolio of premium brands including BACARDĺ rum, MARTINI vermouth & sparkling wines, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin, GREY GOOSE vodka and PATRÓN tequila.
