Multi’s Katwolderplein project in Zwolle fully let on official opening
Multi and VAGO sell all commercial premises to Deen supermarkets
Very recently, Multi Netherlands and VAGO Barneveld sold the commercial premises in the Katwolderplein project in Zwolle to Deen supermarkets. Deen will open its supermarket on the site on 1 March 2017.
Multi has let the remaining commercial premises to restaurant formula De Beren.
For both parties, this will be their first location in the Dutch province of Overijssel. In agreeing on the lease, De Beren Restaurants were advised by Adhoc horecamakelaars bv. Multi developed the commercial premises at the expense and risk of VAGO. The Katwolderplein project officially opens on 12 April and has been let in its entirety.
Katwolderplein is an important part of the large-scale redevelopment and reorganisation of the western entrance to the city of Zwolle. The project includes the commercial premises, a Pathé cinema that seats 1,500, a multi-storey car park and homes. The cinema opened in November 2016. The multi-storey car park, with more than 700 parking spaces and owned by the municipality of Zwolle, will open on the same day as the supermarket, 1 March 2017. The 23 social rented properties, owned by deltaWonen, are expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.
Françoise Dechesne, Managing Director of Multi Netherlands: “We are delighted that the years of planning have ultimately resulted in this great development. In terms both of its appearance and purpose, the complex is a valuable addition for Zwolle, making the city even more attractive. We would like to wish Deen and De Beren every success in their operations.”
Joost Deen, Deputy Director of Deen Supermarkets: “Deen is pleased to be opening its first store in Overijssel in the centre of the vibrant city of Zwolle in a landscape building with city’s largest multi-storey car park.”
Amsterdam-based Dok architects designed the car park, cinema and stores. The cinema design was developed in collaboration between Dok architecten (exterior) and EUP design (interior). Michel Tombal Architect is responsible for designing the residential properties.
