Real estate advisor Colliers International is relocating its Dutch head office with 120 people at the end of this year to Building 1962 within Bouwinvest’s ‘The Olympic’ redevelopment in the south of Amsterdam, next to the city’s historic Olympic Stadium.
Bouwinvest’s Office Fund has refurbished the two former landmark Citroën buildings that comprise The Olympic and are named after their years of construction, 1931 and 1962, and the French carmaker that originally occupied the site, while carefully preserving their original features.
Dirk Bakker, CEO Colliers Nederland, said: "I am very happy with this spectacular location, which is a fitting place for Colliers to take the next step in the development of its business in the Netherlands. This former Citroën garage and showroom is an iconic and historic building and is being transformed by Bouwinvest into a modern and inspiring workplace. "
The latest cutting edge office innovations are incorporated into the open and light space of Building 1962, while its roof terrace offers impressive views over the Olympic Stadium and surrounding area which is well-served by restaurants, hotels and sports facilities.
Bouwinvest and Colliers are also joining forces to create a compelling programme of events for the community of occupiers of Building 1962.
Bas Jochims, Bouwinvest Director Dutch Office & Hotel Investments, said: "The arrival of Colliers at The Olympic Amsterdam brings a new element to the diversity and working ‘buzz‘ of Building 1962, where Under Armor, restaurant NENI, Parcom Capital and Deloitte Digital have already signed lease agreements".
