- June, 2021 - Rotterdam Science Tower sold to Kadans -
After successfully rebranding and revitalizing 52 Nijmegen, the Rotterdam Science Tower is our most recent project to become part of the Kadans Portfolio. Cyclus Property has specialized and built a track-record in developing real estate strategies and in optimizing complex and comprehensive real estate projects. Our approach includes themed strategies such as innovation, tech, life sciences & health and research & development across sectors.
Anticipating the cyclicality of the real estate market and executing market specific asset management strategies have become our signature competences.
We're here to get the most out of real estate assets. But obviously everyone has different requirements. So we search out the best real estate options for the particular circumstances and our shared financial goals.
To do this, we draw on comprehensive knowledge of the Dutch real estate market. But also wide international experience. This gives us a better appreciation of foreign investors' needs and a wider perspective on real estate.
And that's important. Because to provide solutions that will add value, we need to be able to look beyond square meters. Spotting possibilities others simply don't see. New, exciting investment opportunities for us and our partners. In real estate that the market needs and that will maximise results.
There are no short cuts when it comes to providing realistic advice and insightful reports. Our research is therefore always based on solid foundations: rich databases, technical expertise, professional know-how and extensive market knowledge.
Using our network to find mutual investment opportunities. Offering strategic advice on the underwriting of debt or equity. Monitoring and reporting on the performance of deployed capital. Whatever the issue, you can rest assured our work will be honest, well-founded, designed to deliver the specific results we both need, and geared to creating a genuine competitive edge.

This specific property reflects a successfully themed media (office) campus with a strong tenancy base.

On behalf of a global institutional investor the nearly vacant landmark building has been revitalized, rebranded, repositioned and successfully leased-up. The building formerly known as Fiftytwodegrees was rebranded into 52 Nijmegen. Renovation works of common areas have been realized in cooperation with world class architectural firm Mecanoo. Added facilities and a clear marketing strategy were key-elements in the successful lease-up and attracted large and long-term tech/lab tenants. Following these steps the property was sold and subsequently became part of the Kadans Science Partner portfolio.
Fascinated by buildings, development of agglomerations and location selection processes of businesses I have earned a Bachelor’s degree in building engineering and a Master's degree in economic geography. Today I still benefit from this background and combine skills and experience in developing strong, research-based business cases and in transforming underperforming assets into strong performing assets. Being responsible for the performance of our investors’ properties I am focused on developing risk/return strategies that enable our properties to outperform the market. Having gained experience working for US based and domestic investment managers, I am dedicated to our international client base primarily consisting of institutional investors, family offices and private equity. Having been able to deliver and exceed our clients’ expectations is a much-appreciated reward for me personally and for our business. My expertise includes structuring and initiating debt and equity strategies in office, retail and logistics/industrial, ESG strategy implementation and consultancy at executive level. I take great pride in being a trusted partner for our clients providing the highest standards and results in real estate.
Looking at urban environments and its buildings in different ways leads to insights. From this perspective, I like to think real estate strategies through and unlock new business opportunities. This way strong performance at different times in, and throughout the cycle can be achieved.
Moving forward and getting things done by defining and refining strategies and swift execution. Complex situations are handled by a structured approach, analysing necessary steps and owning the targets. Bringing matters towards their end goal is one of my key-strengths.
Since Cyclus’ inception in 2012 Boris takes care of our financial matters ranging from invoicing to making sure our procedures are compliant with regulations. Boris is available part-time at our offices.
I have worked in the real estate industry for 24 years, most recently as a managing director en regional portfolio manager at Jaguar Listed Property focussing primarily on the European listed property markets. I have held similar positions Northwood Securities and EII Capital Management (EII) where I established their first offshore office and built the investment team. During my tenure at EII the firm won several Lipper Awards amongst which an award for Best International Real Estate Fund over five years. I started my career at APG Investments in 1996 where I was involved with the management of European and US REIT portfolios and was ultimately promoted to a portfolio management position with a responsibility for Europe. At APG I was also involved with investments in private real estate, mostly non-listed fund investments. In my role as advisor I will support the Cyclus team with strategic management decisions as well as corporate responsibility objectives.
