Redevelopment of former banking building on Rembrandtplein Amsterdam
Kroonenberg Groep and Bouwfonds Vastgoedontwikkeling signed a collaboration agreement regarding the collective redevelopment of the former ABN AMRO bank building on Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam on 29 November.
This former branch of the ABN AMRO Bank of around 44,650 m2 will be redeveloped into a multi-functional building. The lower level on the Rembrandtplein and the Amstelstraat will have space for businesses in the retail, leisure and catering sectors. There is also space for offices, and there will be a hotel. On the basement levels, a garage for parking spaces will be maintained. Construction is scheduled to start in mid 2003, and delivery is expected in mid 2005. The site’s prominent location in the center of Amsterdam has aroused much interest. Discussions are currently ongoing with various prospective tenants.
Bouwfonds Vastgoedontwikkeling focuses on the development of offices, shopping centers, special projects and (inner-city) area development in Europe. Bouwfonds Vastgoedontwikkeling is part of ABN AMRO Bouwfonds Nederlandse Gemeenten, one of the largest operators in the development, financing and management of real estate.
