Bridges Real Estate (the Vermaat family property investment vehicle) has acquired a mixed-use complex in Zeist. The complex at Vrijheidsplein consists of 50 apartments, approximately 2,000 sq. m. of retail space, and 23 garages. The vendor is a private seller.

The share of the income from the lease of the spaces is approximately 50% residential and 50% retail. The retail spaces are now fully let and occupied by a supermarket and various local businesses.
