DP World moves to Waalhaven in Rotterdam

In the first quarter of 2021, DP World will move to Waalhaven O.z. 83 in Rotterdam. The company has signed a long-term lease agreement with owner Aroundtown for a space of approximately 650 sqm in the Dockworks office complex.

DP World, a supplier of supply chain management and logistics, was founded in Dubai in 1972. Currently there are more than 150 offices around the world. The company was previously housed in an office at the container terminal in Rotterdam. The relocation gives them a view of logistics processes in their working area, the port.

Dockworks is an office complex in the middle of the maritime business center of Rotterdam de Waalhaven. In recent years, the area has been transformed by the municipality into the industrial and logistics service cluster of Rotterdam. Other established companies in the area are Boskalis, Hapag-Lloyd and Samskip. Dockworks I has a renovated entrance, sufficient parking spaces and the option to rent smaller spaces in the divided floor. The new office is furnished to a high standard and has energy label B.

Owner Aroundtown is assisted by Colliers.

Since 2018 I am part of the agency team in the greater Rotterdam real estate market, advising landlords and investors. My focus is on Offices. My daily  work consists of letting transactions and mid cap transactions. 

I started as Junior Asset Manager by Chalet Group. As Junior Asset Manager my (commercial) focus was on a real estate portfolio (+ 100 million) in the greater region of South-Holland.  My daily task was to add value to our assets in South-Holland. My main responsibilities  exsisted off  contracting new tenants, renegotiating excisting tenants, contact with property management (extern) and make plans to (re)develop our assets.

I wrote my thesis on the Rotterdam office investment market at Chalet Group during my Real Estate Management study.
