The conversion of vacant office space into housing presents an increasingly interesting opportunity for private investors.
Many vacant offices are located at prime locations in major urban areas with an increasing demand for housing. The Dutch government is actively encouraging conversions through special arrangements and tax incentives. The government has set up an expert team to assist investors planning a conversion.
The Dutch government is a major owner of office space itself. The Central Government Real Estate Agency offers investors the opportunity to acquire former government buildings at city locations.
