IKAROS 2.0 in Luxembourg comes into its own
With the introduction of three significant new tenants by RealCorp Luxembourg, the second incarnation of IKAROS 2.0, Luxembourg has truly begun! We are delighted that, due to our efforts, most of the space in this highly flexible office complex is now taken.
A quick recap: What is IKAROS 2.0 in Luxembourg?
This attractive complex in Kalchesbréck, Luxembourg, originally built between 2002-2005, offers office space to companies of all sizes. Additionally, it now provides a generous retail area to serve them.
The two buildings Artemis and Apollo comprise approximately 25,000 m² of office space, 5,000 m² of archives and 800 interior parking spaces. There are five upper and four basement floors, with three bright entrances on rue de Neudorf. Each entrance has a different address. (more…)
Stylish residential and retail: Gare, Luxembourg City
Don’t miss this beautiful period property with a modern twist, in Rue de Strasbourg, Gare, Luxembourg City!
It is centrally located near the Gare, and within walking distance of the tram line. So this building is in the middle of everything. It also has everything! When completed, it will comprise a retail ground-floor with an upper level convenient for a restaurant and three apartments. More than that, the last apartment is a penthouse on two levels. Additionally, the first floor will have a comfortable rear terrace.
Across the road is an administrative building occupied by state bodies which value easy access, testament to the centrality of the location. The area also contains a nice mix of residential and business properties. This is unlike some more monotonous streets in other parts of the city which offer only either residential or office buildings. As a consequence, it’s lively and dynamic, the perfect setting for a combined residential and retail property. (more…)
26 rue Philippe II, Luxembourg City: Ville Haute – CBD
26 rue Philippe II is one of the most central and choicest locations money can rent in Luxembourg.
This property, under local private ownership, nestles between the Dior, Cartier and Chanel boutiques. It overlooks a fantastic location at the very heart of the city. It has a stunning view of the Dior office building opposite, one of the area’s most remarkable pieces of architecture.
Built at the turn of the 20th century, the building enjoys a typical Art deco style. It comprises single-tenant floors of which the retail premises previously housed jewellers, while the upper floors provided offices and residential units.
New Occupant: NREP aims to challenge the status quo
From this inspiring setting, new occupant NREP will continue their mission to be the best at what they do and “challenge the status quo” by making a positive difference while doing so.
NREP Management Company sàrl is a Nordic integrated real estate product innovator, developer, investor and operator. This company was founded in 2005, and quickly developed a specialisation in Nordic real estate. With +275 real estate investments and €4bn assets under management, they now have offices in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Luxembourg.
This ambitious, optimistic firm pursues noble goals in the field of real estate, such as looking to maintain and improve sustainability in buildings. They also aim to challenge the status quo by striving for a collaborative and mutually supportive approach of “sharing values and valuing differences”. As a result, they have developed a strong multidisciplinary team of +180 specialists. Read more about them on the NREP website.
Why This Move?
NREP needed to move to this excellent location because the Luxembourg team were quickly outgrowing their previous occupancy. Always looking for new talent, they invite contact from anyone with appropriate expertise who would like to join their team. So the expanding company wanted to relocate into a larger but still centrally located office property, preferably already fitted out.
Expansion is a common motive for finding new premises. Companies want to retain access to all the advantages of a Luxembourg City location, but must make room for success!
We at RealCorp are of course happy to help businesses achieve their aims and fulfil their growth strategies. In this instance, our swift follow-up system enabled us to re-lease the premises immediately after the previous tenant (also sourced by RealCorp) vacated them.
The new tenancy takes effect in January 2020. We wish NREP both increased comfort and ongoing success as they continue to challenge the status quo from their new premises.
