PingProperties, KlokGroep and BPD have embarked on a joint venture for the development of a new residential neighbourhood in Arnhem
Since 2012 PingProperties has owned approx. 6.5 hectares of land with approx. 70,000 m² of office and laboratory buildings on Velperweg in Arnhem. In June this year PingProperties also purchased the adjacent former industrial site of ENKA covering an area of approx. 7.1 hectares. The entire area now owned by PingProperties covers a total of 13.6 hectares.
On approx. 5 hectares of this site KlokGroep and BPD are developing a residential neighbourhood with a high-quality living environment. This development will be carried out in close consultation with PingProperties, since on the remaining 8 hectares PingProperties will be developing further a sustainable campus focusing on generating employment and providing educational facilities. In this way PingProperties will be contributing to the creation of a pleasant living and working environment and a good quality of life in the area.
KlokGroep is part of KlokHolding, a dynamic family company with almost 100 years of experience and a turnover of well over € 176 million in 2016. The holding company’s strong financial basis and the economies of scale it has achieved mean that KlokGroep is in a position to take on large residential projects and assume the risks of its clients. We think further and do more; that is the basis of our wide-ranging service. We specialize in the entire process from initiation, development, construction and occupation to maintenance and management. For more information, go to: www.klokgroep.nl

The renewed lease is for approx. 8,600 m2 of office space and 70 parking spaces at Cascadeplein 8-10, with the addition of approx. 4,870 m2 of office space and 69 parking spaces at Cascadeplein 1-3.
