Maarsen Groep develops commercial real estate and apartments. Independent, versatile, enterprising and with a long term focus.
The building at Grote Bickersstraat 74 - 78 is located in the centre of Amsterdam, near the Central Station. The building dates back to 1964 and forms an integral part of the construction history on Bickerseiland. A thorough renovation will take place in 2018, after the building has been used for years by a market research agency.
With this renovation, Maarsen Groep has the ambition to make the existing building more sustainable and to renovate into high-quality offices with a distinct identity. KAAN Architects made a new design, in which the qualities of the original building are respected, using the latest techniques and meeting current requirements. The surrounding grounds will also be redecorated and given a green character, with parking spaces integrated in the green. The renovation is planned to start at the end of 2018 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
In 2013, together with our partner Zadelhoff, the first sketches were made for a new building on the corner of the Ring A10 and the Parnassusweg (Zuidas). The fitted building was designed by Diederik Dam (Dam & Partners Architects) and has the shape of an hourglass ("Hourglass"). In close cooperation with the municipality of Amsterdam, tenants Loyens & Loeff and PREM Group, a design was developed into a mixed-use building in which shops in the plinth, high-quality offices, 115 hotel apartments and a "sky bar" have all been given a place. Along the Parnassusweg Hourglass forms an ensemble with the adjacent NoMA House. From the A10 and the renewed Station Amsterdam Zuid, Hourglass will soon be visible as part of the Zuidas skyline. The construction of Hourglass started at the end of 2017, and the building will be handed over to the tenants by the end of 2019, so that it can be used in early 2020.
At the Gerrit Mannourystraat, Maarsen Groep is developing two apartment buildings with a total of 68 rental homes and underground parking spaces. The two buildings have been designed by LEVS Architects. The construction of the apartments is expected to start at the start of 2019, which will then be completed by the spring of 2020.
NoMA House is the high-quality office building on the corner of Gustav Mahlerlaan and Parnassusweg (Zuidas). The building has been developed and built sustainably, in collaboration with our partner Zadelhoff, in accordance with the requirements of BREEAM Outstanding. The building was completed in early 2018 with high-quality catering and retail space in the plinth, and houses a diversity of office tenants.
Gershwin Brothers is located on the corner of George Gershwinlaan and Parnassusweg (Zuidas). The project was developed, together with our partner Zadelhoff, and completed in the first quarter of 2018. The project consists of two separate buildings with a total of 159 luxury rental apartments, built on an underground car park. In the building on the Parnassusweg are shops in the plinth, including "Loetje Zuidas" with a beautiful terrace on the water.
Together with tenants Nauta Dutilh and Robeco, the plans were developed for FIRST Rotterdam: a high-quality office building at the Weena, with approximately 40,000 m² of offices and facilities in the plinth, and an underground parking garage with approximately 200 parking spaces. FIRST Rotterdam was designed by Branimir Medic (the Architekten Cie.). The project was completed in 2016 and now houses a large diversity of office users.
