They match our strategy of acquiring office properties in the best locations in the Benelux countries. Both the economic conditions in Brussels and the capital of Europe are very attractive. We anticipate that the positive local market conditions, such as a low vacancy rate and a limited supply of space, will further boost rental growth and lead to increasing rental incomes. The purchase of these two properties once again demonstrates how successfully our acquisition team can act in an intensely competitive market environment. As a new entrant to the Brussels investment market, Cording has once again emphasised the level of security it can provide during transactions."
