Sloterdijk in the north-west of Amsterdam is conveniently situated between city centre and Schiphol Airport. It is the ideal location for an office building, a hotel and serviced apartments.
The project “Orly Centre” by the IG Immobilien Group opened in August 2002. After a record construction time of just one and a half years, the building complex was ready. The property is ideal for an office or hotel: the neighbouring train station offers practically direct access to the Orly Centre. Trains run frequently and take less than five minutes to Amsterdam central station.
In summer 2015, Amsterdam’s most modern Mercure Hotel opened on an area of 6,300 m². In a construction time of just one year, the hotel complex with 172 rooms and a sky bar restaurant was completed. For the realisation of this project, IG Immobilien collaborated with a Dutch general contractor.
The second part of the IG property is currently home to the “Amsterdam ID Aparthotel” with meanwhile 127 serviced apartments run by tenant A-partments. Due to the high average occupancy rate and huge demand for short-term lets, IG Immobilien already converted office space into apartments twice and handed them over to tenant A-partments. The most recent expansion by 33 apartments was completed in summer 2017.
In 2019 long stay apartments were added. Covering an area of around 2,200 m², 48 new apartments have been created, each offering 30 to 35 m² of contemporary living comfort in an attractive location and first-class infrastructure. Operator of the long stay apartments is the international brand Citadines Apart'hotel.
The remaining space unit N1 is office space. This is predominately being used by the Dutch land registry office – an arrangement that is to remain in place in future.
With this project, IG is expanding its property portfolio by another hotel – following the development of Motel One near the Prater in Vienna and the City Identity Apartments in Sloterdijk, Amsterdam. As always, when it came to choosing a future tenant in Amsterdam, IG Immobilien placed great importance on local market knowledge. With the city-based WIN hotel group, which runs a total of 13 hotels of various brands across Amsterdam, we have found the perfect partner.
