OVG leases office space to Salesforce

OVG Real Estate has leased approximately 2.650 m2 and 23 parking spaces in office building The Edge to Salesforce, world leader in CRM software for the cloud.

Innovative headquarter

OVG Real Estate completed The Edge, the most sustainable office building in the world, last October. Salesforce will be moving into The Edge by the 1st of September 2015, where they will join current tenants Deloitte, AKD, Sandvik and Edelman.
The Edge is far ahead of its time and has been described as a 'computer with a roof'. The innovative technology offered by The Edge and the location on the Zuidas were decisive factors for Salesforce as a leading software company when choosing The Edge as their new head office. Due to the international character of Salesforce, the location of the Zuidas close to Schiphol also plays a part in this choice.

"Salesforce is a very innovative company that has found a highly sustainable and innovative office in The Edge"

Jan Hein Tiedema, Managing Director OVG Nederland

The Edge

Salesforce's decision is also important to the city of Amsterdam and fits with the trend of increasing numbers of technology companies choosing to settle in the capital. Jan Hein Tiedema, Managing Director OVG Netherlands: “We are extremely pleased that this young, dynamic, American company has chosen our city for its further expansion.”

The Edge is a design by Ron Bakker and Lee Polisano of PLP Architecture from London. The building has been certified as BREEAM-NL ‘Outstanding’ and was sold last year to Deka Immobilien Investment.
The real estate agency team for The Edge comprises JLL, Van Gool ♢ Elburg Vastgoedspecialisten B.V. and DTZ Zadelhoff, whereby JLL acted as advisor for OVG. Cushman & Wakefield assisted Salesforce during this transaction.
