Kroonenberg Groep has reached an agreement with Albert Heijn for the lease of the store located at Buitenveldertselaan 156 in Amsterdam.

This regards a 966 m² retail space spread over the ground floor and basement.

The building located at Buitenveldertselaan 148 — 156 was demolished at the end of 2022, maintaining the existing concrete structure. Designed by Dam & Partners Architects, the building will be redeveloped, providing it with a new façade and adding an additional floor and roof terrace to the building. The use of light grey natural stone, dark-tinted ceramic tiles and aluminium frames give the building an industrial feel. By adding new façade elements, consisting of deep frames filled with aluminium profiles, the building acquires a more transparent appearance on all floors. On the ground floor, the use of large glass panels has strengthened the relationship between inside and outside space.

In addition to the new Albert Heijn on the ground floor, there is also an entrance to the four floors above, which are destined for office use. A total of 3,300 m² of office space will be built. The renovated building also has an industrial look inside with concrete structures and visible installations. The building’s location is ideal because it borders a small shopping area and is a stone’s throw from the prestigious Zuidas district.

Delivery to Albert Heijn took place this week and, after a short installation period, the store will open its doors on 12 December.

The offices on the upper floors will be completed in the 2nd quarter of 2024. Kroonenberg Groep is assisted in renting out the offices by Van Dijk & Ten Cate.

Kroonenberg Groep has reached an agreement with Yonego for the long-term lease of office space in the Barones shopping centre in Breda. The leased property consists of a space of approximately 960 m² and a roof terrace of approximately 190 m². Yonego supports its clients in developing an effective go-to-market strategy and in making optimal use of and improving online marketing.

To realise this high-quality office space, Kroonenberg Groep redeveloped the 2nd and 3rd floors of the former H&M store following a design by architect Nina Graziosi. The space previously used for storage and staff has been transformed into a modern, sustainable office space. Original details such as the stained glass windows have been restored to their former glory in this monumental part of the Barones. The office space has an entrance on the Nieuwstraat and in the shopping centre.

The Barones shopping centre is home to an attractive mix of brands, with fashionable clothing stores such as The Sting, Pull&Bear, Bershka, Sissy Boy, Guess, de Koopman and Only, large chains such as Etos, Xenos and T-Mobile, and local businesses such as Tierelantijn and Koffie bij Teun.

Kroonenberg Groep was advised on this transaction by Van der Sande Van Opstal Bedrijfsmakelaars and De Lobel & Partners.

At Apollolaan 171, Kroonenberg Groep is developing a state-of-the-art office building. J.P. van Eesteren started the construction work in the autumn of 2021 and today the building reached its highest point. That moment was celebrated with the installation of the final lift cover plate during a ceremony attended by the architect, contractor and developer.

Apollolaan 171 is situated at a wonderful corner location close to luxury hotels, homes and high-end offices. The design is transparent and responds to its environment, which is defined by Berlage’s historical architecture from the early 20th century. The side of the building facing Apollolaan is characterized by interlocking glass volumes. The transparency that this creates visually draws the greenery of the environment into the interior. The main entrance to the office building is on the corner.

As Lesley Bamberger, CEO of Kroonenberg Groep explains, “It’s very special to see how quickly the new building’s contours became apparent here. We look forward to seeing a beautiful, finished building here soon.”

Marco Peppel, director of J.P. van Eesteren, adds, “This project is an example of fantastic and high-quality architecture. As builders we naturally want the finished building to be just as beautiful as what it looked like on paper. That’s what the team is working so hard to achieve. When you reach the highest point, it’s nice to reflect with everyone involved on what we have managed to achieve together.”

The development of Apollolaan 171 will eventually consist of 6,600 m² of office space for rental purposes, with parking in the basement for cars, scooters and bicycles. The building is scheduled to be completed in mid 2023.
