COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
Dutch Prominent Office Buildings
The acquisition process is focused on ‘A+’ and ‘A’ locations within strategic cities with good public transport infrastructure.
CK has a particular focus on build-to-suit, single and anchor tenant office properties in prime city center locations. Location, Lessee and Lease are the key investment drivers.
Sustainability of the properties forms an integral part of our strategy. We undertake feasibility studies to identify where effective capital expenditure programs can enhance value. CK recognizes the impact that the properties have on the environment and society. We work closely together with our tenants to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes that incorporate improvements to both the functionality and the experience of the building as well as the entire sustainability process in general and the optimization of its energy efficiency in particular. We also support our tenants in optimizing their own installations and internal office layout with respect to sustainability.
Obtaining energy label A is one of our first priorities for all our properties. In addition, we provide building-related investments that result in BREEAM sustainability certificates of at least ‘very good’.
