Aviva acquires Unesco-listed office block in Amsterdam

London-based Aviva Investors has acquired an office building in the centre of Amsterdam on behalf of one of its mandates for an undisclosed sum.

Located within the Dutch capital’s historic canal district, the building comprises 2,000 sqm of rental space, and is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. The seller has not been named.

According to Adrien Beuriot, the Aviva Investor’s head of asset management for continental Europe, Amsterdam has been identified as a strategically important location for the firm’s real estate business.

“It is a renowned tech hub, whilst also being a highly liveable city. As a result, we expect it to continue attracting leading businesses and talent,” he said.

The Netherlands as a whole also represents a growth market for the investor, Beuriot added. So far this year, Aviva Investors has completed four transactions in the country for its real assets business.
