EY, one of the largest financial audit and advisory firms, has just leased some 15,000 sq.m of offices in the real estate project “The Wings”. BNP Paribas Real Estate acted as real estate advisor to Ghelamco.
This development, located on the former Esco Drives site at 3 Culliganlaan in Diegem, was acquired by the Ghelamco Group in 2019 with the help of the BNP Paribas Real Estate transaction teams.
"This transaction reflects our ability to support our clients at every stage of their real estate project. We are delighted to have assisted the developer in this new large-scale lease, after having also worked with Ghelamco in deals with PwC," says Bertrand Cotard, Letting & Sales Office Director at BNP Paribas Real Estate.
The Ghelamco real estate group will develop around 50,000 sq.m on the site, including office spaces (23,450 sq.m), a Hilton Garden Inn hotel (250 rooms), a fitness centre, restaurants and co-working facilities (12,050 sq.m).
The aim is to offer an office building that is designed to tick all the boxes in terms of sustainable development, flexibility and quality of life at work.
The development will benefit from triple certification, namely BREEAM Excellent, WELL Gold certification and DGNB Gold certification.
Work is currently underway and is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023.
