Deka Immobilien has extended a lease agreement for nearly 45,000 square metres of office space in Belgium. By concluding this contract, Régie des Bâtiments (the state buildings agency for Belgium) has made a long-term commitment to the "Eurostation" complex at Brussels' main railway station, Gare du Midi. The sole office tenant in the property wants to adapt the design of the space to modern-day working conditions and accommodate several state authorities and ministries at this location. The contract has been approved by the Belgian Council of Ministers and is one of the biggest in this Brusselian sub-market.
Deka Immobilien acquired the property in 2004 as a new build for the open-ended real estate fund WestInvest InterSelect. The office building has received British BREEAM "Very good" certification for sustainable construction.
Jones Lang LaSalle was a consultant on this transaction.
