The Sting leases in Dordrecht
In early 2012, Kroonenberg Groep will begin restoring Het Lindershuis on Bagijnhof 9 in Dordrecht to its former glory. This former department store, which was built by architect Jos Duijnstee in 1920, was enlarged around 1970 through the addition of a new five-storey complex on Raamstraat.
Until the 1990s, the department store in the building was in the hands of Hobo Faam, using the name ‘Het Lindershuis’. The building was then sub-divided and let to Prenatal, Scapino, Creyfs Uitzendbureau, Adam Herenmode and McDonald's, among others.
Following close consultation with the Dordrecht local authority and architect Rijnboutt, Kroonenberg Groep has devised a plan to restore Het Lindershuis to its former glory.
In order to bring this about, Kroonenberg Groep has successfully negotiated a premature termination of the rental agreements with the sitting tenants. McDonald’s will transfer its branch to the former Prijstopper location at Bagijnhof 10, while the lessor has been able to relocate Adam Herenmode to Bagijnhof 3, where the lessee recently opened its new brand store.
Kroonenberg Groep expects to have completed the renovation of Het Lindershuis by September 2012. Agreement has already been reached with The Sting whereby they will rent around 2,560 m2 of retail space, spread over the ground, first and second floors. Scapino will remain at its present location.
On the top floor, Kroonenberg Groep will create a multifunctional space with its own entrance.
Kroonenberg Groep was assisted by HB Kroese Paternotte and D&B Retail during the course of all the transactions.
