Vastint leases CitySide-Rivierstaete office space to MessageBird

Technology company MessageBird has signed a long-term lease for approximately 4,000 sq. m. of office space in the CitySide-Rivierstaete complex.

MessageBird is the winner of the ‘FD Golden Gazelle’ award. It also secured the largest Series A investment round for a European software company in 2017. MessageBird will continue its impressive growth in the CitySide-Rivierstaete complex with its mission ‘to modernise and simplify the unnecessarily complicated field of customer communication’.

Rivierstaete is located on the banks of the River Amstel, within walking distance of the Amsterdam Amstel railway and metro station and a 5 minute drive from the A10 and A2 motorways. The complex of approximately 30,000 sq. m. is being completely renovated to become a new creative hotspot in the heart of Amsterdam.

MVSA Architects created the new design. The transparent glass façade gives the building an open and accessible feel, with lots of daylight and impressive views over the city from the complex’s many rooftop terraces. The expansive floors reinforce the feeling of space and offer myriad opportunities for flexible partitioning.

This major renovation will be completed in the third quarter of 2018. MessageBird will then be the first tenant to move into CitySide. As previously announced, tenant WPP will also move into the renovated Rivierstaete building with around twenty companies at the end of 2018.

Approximately 5,500 sq. m. is still available for lease in CitySide on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors.

CBRE advised the complex’s owner, Vastint, on the lease. P. van den Bosch Corporate Estate Agents advised MessageBird.
