The building is designed and constructed to be sustainable and energy efficient.

In addition to numerous social spaces for employees, the building also has a green facade.
The Netherlands is one of the five largest exporting countries in the world. Its geographical location and its traditionally close links with European and intercontinental markets make it an international hub for trade and logistics. Uden is strategically located in the heart of East Brabant between Nijmegen, Eindhoven and Venlo. Thanks to its central location and excellent transport links, the region is one of the main logistics centers in the Netherlands. Eindhoven, Zwolle, Oss and Breda are easily accessible via the nearby A50, A59 and A73 motorways. The A73 motorway (Nijmegen – Venlo) and the A16, which easily connects the port of Rotterdam with the southern region and the port of Antwerp, also pass not far from Uden.
The property is situated on a plot of approx. 16,450 m² on the south-eastern edge of Uden, in the middle of a fully developed business park. The business park was established in the 1960s and has been restructured in recent years into a modern, dynamic and sustainable business park, aiming to be a relevant logistics hub in the Netherlands, especially in the sectors of furniture, decoration and design. This not only led to a significant improvement in the quality of the location, but also brought in several prime real estate developments.
The seller is Potmaat BV, a Dutch holding company with three operating companies, Adezz BV, Furns BV and Senzzo BV, all specializing in garden and street furniture, water and fire elements and garden products. The 15-year lease was signed by its main operating company Adezz on a triple net ROZ basis.

In addition to the very good location in one of the main logistics regions of the Netherlands, the high-quality construction and equipment of the building combined with an above-average rental period with a tenant with a solid credit argued in favor of the purchase. using our management expertise to successively implement other sustainability projects with the tenant, as well as to continue to develop our logistics portfolio in the Netherlands and across Europe”.
