Heidelberg/Rotterdam, November 06, 2023 - FOM Real Estate Holland B.V. ("FOM Holland"), a subsidiary of FOM Real Estate Group, has signed three long-term leases at Maas Tower in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The FOM Group has been a co-owner of the tallest office tower (165 meters) in the Benelux since 2018 and also acts as asset manager of the building, which was completed in 2009.
Svenska Handelsbanken, a Swedish bank and one of the largest credit institutions in Northern Europe, has signed a very long-term lease. The 735 square meter rental space is located on the 43rd floor with a complete view over of Rotterdam. The interior design of the premises meets the ESG and New Work criteria of the institution following the recently completed interior fit-out work. In addition, the insurance broker Raetsheren van Orden B.V. ("Raetsheren") has signed a long-term lease. The company rents 485 square meters of space on the 37th floor of the Maas Tower, where the space has also been fitted out in accordance with the company's ESG and New Work criteria.

Prof. Reinhard Walter, Managing Partner of the FOM Group, says: "Since its completion in 2009, the Maas Tower has become a modern landmark in Rotterdam. The three long-term leases once again demonstrate the attractiveness of the location for national and international companies. In accordance with our Manage-to-ESG approach, we are working on further sustainability measures for the entire building."
Matthijs Hoekstra, Managing Director of FOM Holland, says: "Following the successful optimization and refinancing of the Maas Tower, we have now taken the next steps: This includes, for example, the installation of LED lighting throughout the building. Energy-saving air conditioning systems and the use of water-saving technologies will also lead to a further reduction in consumption throughout the building."

We have once again demonstrated our local expertise in this important European market.
