Spaces first tenant in Wonderwoods Utrecht
Spaces has become the first company to lease offices in the Wonderwoods development in Utrecht. The provider of flexible office space has signed a long-term lease for 5,700 sq. m.
Wonderwoods consists of two green towers with a hectare of ‘vertical forest’ on Croeselaan in Utrecht. The complex is due for completion in 2022.
The first tower was designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri. Trees and shrubs from the province of Utrecht have been incorporated into its green façade. Tower II, a design by MVSA Architects, has integrated the natural world into the building’s atriums, interior gardens and roof terraces. Spaces will move into the 2nd and 3rd floors of Tower II.
“We see this transaction as a prime example of Utrecht’s growing appeal among flex offices, due to the tight office market in the city centre,” says Maarten Schoo, CBRE Utrecht’s director. “But above all it is confirmation that, with a global player like Spaces occupying a key position in Wonderwoods, a building with international allure, Utrecht is now being seen as an attractive working and residential area to rival other major cities. At CBRE, we are therefore very proud of our contribution in supporting Spaces at its new 5,700 sq. m. location.”
Spaces was advised by CBRE. Wonderwoods Development was advised by BNP Paribas Real Estate and JLL.
