MSC rents 5,400 sq. m. in Five55 Rotterdam

Mediterranean Shipping Company will be leasing 5,400 sq. m. of office space in Five55 at Blaak 555 in Rotterdam. The company, one of the largest container transport companies in the world, signed a long-term lease with landlord Hummingbird B.V. at the end of last year.

Ralf Jacobs, Managing Director of MSC explains: “For us, this building is a unique opportunity to improve the quality of the workplace and the working environment for all of our employees. We also believe it is important to stay in the centre of Rotterdam due to the provisions and excellent accessibility for our employees.”

Five55 is one of the most impressive silhouettes in the Rotterdam skyline and is currently being fully renovated. The office floors are light and open with a 360-degree view of the city. The building is located in a lively environment, near Markthal. The location is easily accessible by car and public transport. The Beurs tram stop is around the corner and the Blaak and Rotterdam CS stations are within walking distance.
