The time of large-scale projects in the property sector lies behind us. A surplus of office space, caused by the net growth of the Dutch office market, has existed for a number of years. There are a number of reasons for this, including the relocation of businesses from the east to the west of the Netherlands, an increase in the number of people working from home, and the ageing population. There are also a large number of outdated business parks and monotonous office blocks. In addition, today’s society makes different demands when it comes to the layout of areas and buildings. There are therefore opportunities for property companies in terms of redevelopment and redesignation of use, such as converting business premises and shops into flats. However, this requires expertise, experience and a good network. Moreover, you need to be able to be creative and flexible.
