Greenberg Traurig Amsterdam and ULI Netherlands host the First Annual Netherlands Real Estate Leaders Roundtable

AMSTERDAM – Feb. 11, 2019 – Greenberg Traurig LLP’s Amsterdam office hosted the first annual Netherlands Real Estate Leaders Roundtable, in collaboration with Urban Land Institute (ULI) Netherlands. The event, which was held on 25th January 2019 at De Bazel (home of the Amsterdam City Archives and once the headquarters of the Netherlands Trading Company) has been hailed a great success with key decision-makers attending including a wide range of international and local investors, developers, asset managers, and government officials.

Moderated by Eric Rosedale, Greenberg Traurig’s Head of International Real Estate Development, the roundtable provided a special opportunity to share practical information, trends, and ideas about the Dutch real estate investment market.

Amsterdam is an increasingly important destination in Europe for domestic and cross-border investors. Rosedale commented: “This is an important time for the dynamic Dutch real estate market, which is punching well above its weight in Europe. While the robust market is creating pricing and supply pressures for investors, there are ample opportunities for developers in all sectors, including alternative real estate investment classes across the Netherlands.”

Greenberg Traurig Amsterdam shareholders, Jan Kees Brandse and Peter Jansema, were joined by ULI Netherlands Chair, Loes Driessen, in leading the roundtable which shared insights to challenges and opportunities for the real estate sector and created an open discussion among guests.

Commenting on the value of the inaugural Netherlands Real Estate Leaders Roundtable, Driessen said: “At ULI, we consider bringing together industry leaders from different disciplines and geographies – to meet, exchange ideas, share best practices, and foster thought leadership – as one of our primary contributions to the industry. This first roundtable was an excellent small scale and high-quality discussion, which reflected many of the economic, social, and product trends which we focus on at ULI.”
