Aviva acquires Amsterdam canal-front office

Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva, has acquired Keizersgracht 105, an office building located in the centre of Amsterdam, on behalf of one of its clients.

Financial details were not disclosed.

The property, comprising more than 2,300 m2 of functional office space, currently serves as the global headquarters for an international retail company and is situated in the Canal district of Amsterdam, in the 'nine streets' area of the city.

Along with the original double fronted façade, the high-quality interior and large private garden to the rear make Keizersgracht 105 a spacious and inviting workplace, according to Aviva.

Grégoire Bailly-Salins, head of transactions Continental Europe, Aviva Investors, said: 'We are delighted to have acquired a prime office building in the heart of Amsterdam’s canal area and secured what is a rare opportunity in a highly-desirable part of the city.

'This off-market acquisition continues our strategy for exposure to the key real estate markets across Europe, with a focus on core locations that offer strong market dynamics. Keizersgracht 105 is well aligned with our investment strategy in that regard and we believe it will provide both long-term performance and resilience for our clients.'

Aviva Investors was advised by NL Real Estate – Knight Frank, DLA Piper and Royal Haskoning. The vendor was advised by Loyens & Loeff and Van Zijll Langhout Vastgoed.
