For sale: former headquarters of the Royal Air Force in The Hague

The Central Government Real Estate Agency offers for sale, with pre-selection of interested parties, the former headquarters of the Royal Air Force in The Hague, located at Binckhorstlaan 135–137 in The Hague.

Description
This former office building consists of two sections and has a GLA of approximately 41,740 m2.
The plot has an area of 23,533 m2, including on-site parking facilities for approximately 325 vehicles. A unique redevelopment opportunity in a central location in the Binckhorst district of The Hague, in an area known as the Trekvliet zone. The location is easily accessible both by car and public transport.

The Binckhorst district was originally developed by the municipality of The Hague as an area of the city for craftsmen and industrial activity. The municipality is now planning a dynamic and organic process of redevelopment in the district. The main function of the district will be residential. This creates enormous potential for the redevelopment of this site. The construction of the new road link to Rotterdam will also help to rejuvenate the area. The municipality is currently drafting its proposals for redevelopment opportunities in the area. These will become available in mid-March 2017.

The site is currently being used by Motus, which operates in one section of the property under the name MOOOF - a total concept that is providing temporary accommodation for groups, individuals, companies and organizations in the fields of dance, music, sport and exercise.

The Hague’s two main railway stations (Den Haag Holland Spoor and Den Haag Centraal) are both located around two kilometres from the site. Given the planned redevelopment of the Binckhorst area, the site’s beautiful location on the Trekvliet, its easy access to motorways and its proximity to the city centre, this property certainly has plenty of development potential.

Sale procedure
