Smart Assets. Iconic and Operational Property portfolio
The Hague, The Netherlands
“Zilveren Toren”, located in the Prinses Beatrix quarter, was built in 1968. The property served as the HQ of Nationale Nederlanden (NN Group – afterwards ING Investment Management) and has strong similarities with the BP Tower in Antwerp; both buildings are developed in the same period and the same “zeitgeist”, with specific attention to how natural light illuminates large spaces—ideal for office environments.
The “crown” designed by renowed architects Renaat Braem, Pierre Guillissen, André Jacqmain and Victor Mulpas, was home to the Glaverbel company. After more than 40 years of occupation (the building was officially inaugurated in October 1967), it is still one of the most iconic office buildings in Belgium.
This extraordinarily shaped building, designed by modernist architect Constantin Brodzki in 1958, is now home to Deloitte, the Fosbury & Sons co-working station and others.
Leased offices in a fully renovated protected monument from 1960 by Belgian modernist architect Léon Stynen. The BP building or hanging building has floors suspended by steel cables to the concrete construction on the roof. The first using such suspended structure in Europe.
Offices and warehouse with high-end show room and fully equipped co-working space. Built in 2008 and 2016 with luxurious and sustainable materials. About 15000 m2 with room for extension.
