Tribes signs 2,400 sq m lease in SOM building - Amsterdam South Axis

30 September 2016

Union Investment has signed a new lease agreement in the SOM building on the Amsterdam South Axis. The agreement concerns approximately 2,400 sq m in total.

New tenant Tribes offers inspiring offices, communal space, meeting rooms and workplaces, equipped with high-tech materials and amenities to simplify business life, such as dry-cleaning and shoe repair service. This is the tenth location of Tribes, other locations include Amsterdam Amstel, Amsterdam South Axis, The Hague, Rotterdam, Capelle aan de Ijssel, Utrecht Central Station, Eindhoven and Brussels.

The SOM building (18,000 sq m) is located at the Claude Debussylaan 32-48 in Amsterdam. The ground floor of the building includes various commercial areas, each with their own entrance. Tribes will run the reception and facilities of the entrance SOM 2.

Eduard Schaepman, Chief and Founder of Tribes: “Following the Brexit the flexible workplace market is emerging, especially in Amsterdam, the most international city of the Netherlands. In order to provide all business nomads with inspiring workplaces, we decided to open an extra location. In addition, we thought that the final free contiguous square meters of the South Axis deserved a five-star operator as Tribes Inspiring Workplaces.”

Olivier Schel, Savills Agency: "After the recent transaction in the adjacent ITO tower, this is the second successful lease agreement in ITO-SOM within a short time span that we could close for our client Union Investment, making both buildings now fully let. This will be the second Tribes location on the South-Axis, as the first location (still to be opened) in the ITO Tower is virtually fully let.”

Savills advised Union Investment Real Estate GmbH. The leasing of ITO/SOM is a collegial collaboration of JLL, DTZ and Savills.
