Kadans and Dura Vermeer to cooperate on a new development on Leiden Bio Science Park.

Kadans Science Partner and Dura Vermeer are cooperating on a new development on Leiden Bio Science Park. Both parties recently signed an agreement to officially confirm their cooperation.

The new development will be a multi-tentant building of over 7,000 m2 with offices, laboratories and meeting facilities divided over 7 floors. Future users can park their cars underneath the new building. The project will be designed and developed with the ambition to receive a BREEAM-NL Excellent certificate. By doing so, the development confirms the ambition of Kadans to add sustainable buildings to the portfolio.

Leiden Bio Science Park is one of the top science parks in The Netherlands and is leading in the areas of Life Sciences and Bio Tech. Over 130 businesses and multiple educational and research institutes are located there. Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center are pronounced knowledge institutes on campus.

Within the cooperation, Dura Vermeer is responsible for the development and realization phase of the building. Kadans will take care of the commercial realization of the building and the initiation of the local ecosystem.

Kadans Science Partner is specialized in the development of, investment in and management of buildings for the knowledge-intensive sector on and around science parks and university campuses. In July 2017, Kadans formed a joint venture with Oaktree Capital Management. Kadans expects to expand its real estate portfolio with the help of Oaktree’s experience, large network and financial strength. The development on Leiden Bio Science Park underlines the growth ambitions of Kadans.
