PingProperties acquires unique SBM Offshore office in Schiedam


On March 18, PingProperties concluded a purchase agreement on behalf of PingProperties Corporate Office Fund XIII for the single-tenant SBM Offshore office at Karel Doormanweg 66 in Schiedam. The building has a floor area of 8,875 m² over 12 floors and comes with 175 parking spaces.


Purchasing strategy
PingProperties is delighted with this addition to its portfolio. According to Sander Rovers, Investment Manager at PingProperties, the building is at an exceptional location: ‘it is directly alongside the A4 motorway, with the Vijfsluizen metro station opposite the entrance to the building, and is also situated right in the port district of Rotterdam with large seagoing vessels forming its backdrop. Such a spot where port and city meet is unique’. PingProperties therefore sees great value potential in this iconic building, at a unique location with a tenant connected to the area, so the aim is to make the building more sustainable and redevelop it as a modern building that once again meets the requirements of today and tomorrow.
