The assets total 25,417 m2 of lettable space and were sold from the Omikron, Zenith and Artemis portfolios. The sales prices were not disclosed.
The four buildings are the 5,867 m2 Alexandrium office property in Rotterdam which was sold to Van Ettekoven Holding, the 5,530 m2 Overschiestraat 59 asset in Amsterdam which was divested to Lianeo Real Estate, the building at Verheeskade 25 in The Hague comprising 12,265 m2 which was sold to Marie Simon, and Boris Pasternaklaan 12-20 in Zoetermeer, an office building of 1,755 m2 which was sold to Van der Kooy Vastgoed.
