Kroonenberg Groep has reached agreement with Klarna Group regarding a long-term lease at Rokin 69 in Amsterdam. The property being leased provides approx. 730 m² divided among the basement, ground floor and first floor. Another agreement was reached with Hines for a long-term lease of approx. 275 m2 on the second floor. This property was redeveloped last year into a state-of-the-art office building.

Klarna wants to simplify payment procedures by having consumers receive their purchases first and then billing them afterward. At the same time, they will assume the potential credit and fraud risks from the online retailer. Klarna is currently one of the fastest growing companies in Europe. The Klarna Group has more than 3000 employees and operates in 17 markets. They serve more than 85 million consumers and collaborate with 200,000 webshops.

Hines is the world’s largest real estate investment and development firm and has its global headquarters in Houston, Texas. The company has been operating in the Netherlands since 2007 where, for the time being, it focuses on investments. The company is named after Gerald D. Hines who founded the firm in 1947.

For leasing Rokin 69, Kroonenberg Group was advised by Van Dijk en Ten Cate in collegial consultation with Van Gool Elburg.
