Other offices in the Quarter Offices portfolio are Quarter Plaza, Transformatorweg 74-118 and Quarter Avenue, Condensatorweg 54 all located in the upcoming work, shop and live area Amsterdam Sloterdijk.
HighBrook Investors' approach to Quarter Offices is based on an extensive Asset Management plan that will add value to the properties through revitalisation, modern workplace concepts, integrated hard (technical) and soft (hospitality) property management & facility services as well as a pro-active marketing and leasing strategy. HighBrook Investors appointed Equity Estate as overall asset manager for all Quarter Offices.
