Arla Foods Netherlands, an international dairy cooperative, has signed a long-term lease for a new office of approximately 2,340 m², located on the entire 21st floor and part of the 22nd floor of Utrecht's Central Park. In the summer of 2024, Arla Foods’ commercial office in Nijkerk will move to the central heart of Utrecht.

Eye on the future
Mark Boot, Managing Director of Arla Foods the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Luxembourg: “A better future for tomorrow’s generation. That’s what sustainability means to Arla Foods. By making it easier to live healthier lives, thanks to good food, and producing that food in the most sustainable way possible for the well-being of the planet, people and animals. Our office accommodation should contribute to that mission. Moving our commercial organisation to our new office is in line with our vision of sustainability and innovation: a workplace that is not only easily accessible, but is also designed with the future in mind.”

Sustainable offices
Central Park not only offers a special working environment with great views over the city and a city park on the 11th floor, but also an office that is ready for the future. The building is equipped with energy-saving (climate) installations and solar panels, plus it has an A++++ energy label. Central Park received the second-highest score in this year’s assessment for the BREEAM Excellent In-Use certificate.

Letting process
Institutional investor Bouwinvest owns and leases Central Park. The building was initiated and developed by APF International and Angelo Gordon. In the leasing process, CBRE Nederland represented the interests of Arla Foods Netherlands. Bouwinvest was represented by Cushman & Wakefield, in collaboration with APF International. Meanwhile, 99% of Central Park has been let.

Central Park
Central Park offers a total of 28,500 m² of office space and is located in Utrecht’s new Central Business District. The ground floor houses the Club Nomad restaurant, which offers a carefully selected range of food with a great deal of attention paid to people and the environment. Due in part to its central location and easy accessibility, the Utrecht railway station area is very popular and is currently undergoing rapid redevelopment under the name CU2030. The special architecture and indoor city park make Central Park an asset to the new area.
