3.300 m2 office space
OVG Real Estate leases to Henkel in The Edge
OVG Real Estate has leased 3.300 m2 and 28 parking spaces in office building The Edge to Henkel, one of the largest FMCG companies in the world.
Henkel chooses The Edge
In October of last year OVG Real Estate delivered office building The Edge, the most sustainable office building in the world. Henkel takes residence in The Edge next to current tenants such as Deloitte, AKD, Sandvik, Salesforce and Edelman. The innovative technology The Edge offers and the location at the South-Axis were key in Henkel’s decision to establish their global supply chain office in Amsterdam. Given the international character of Henkel, the location at the South-Axis near Schiphol also plays a role in this choice.
For the municipality of Amsterdam, the choice of Henkel is of
importance and fits with the trend of companies establishing their
headquarters in the capital of The Netherlands. Dieter Oude Kotte,
Senior Manager Foreign Investments Amsterdam Inbusiness: “We are
delighted with the arrival of Henkel. The international and business
environment of Amsterdam, the good quality of life, the rich culture it
offers and the presence of international schools are crucial for Henkel
in attracting (inter) national talent. The arrival of Henkel also
confirms the trend of more international companies choosing Amsterdam
for the establishment of a European headquarter or operations business
unit. We welcome Henkel."
BREEAM OUTSTANDING OFFICE BUILDING
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 to Deka Immobilien Investment last year.
