Q-Park has opened its first parking garage in the innovative Binckhorst district at Maanplein in The Hague. The underground parking garage with 121 parking spaces is operated on behalf of Dekfordt and is Q-Park's seventeenth public parking location in Hofstad.
Since 2016, the Binckhorst business park has been slowly transformed into a modern, creative and innovative urban district where people live and work. It is a green and water-rich area for creative entrepreneurs, people with new ideas and traditional The Hague companies. Q-Park Maanweg is located next to the new Elara residential building and meets the parking needs of the surrounding offices, residential towers and various commercial spaces.
In addition to the 121 own parking spaces, Q-Park Maanweg provides access to the adjacent separate parking section of office lessor Unifore; with an additional 47 parking spaces. Sustainability played an important role in the design of the parking garage. For example, Q-Park Maanweg is located under a green roof garden and is equipped with smart LED lighting. There are also ten charging stations for electric transport.
The new sustainable parking garage is an investment by and placed in private placement with several investors in Dekfordt's fourth own parking fund with a volume of around 4 million euros. “Q-Park Maanweg is the result of good cooperation between COD/Borghese, Pleijsierbouw, Q-Park and Dekfordt”, explains John Bindels, partner at Dekfordt.
Q-Park is notable for its quality approach and has a portfolio comprising over 3,300 parking facilities with more than 640,000 parking spaces in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, France, Ireland, and Denmark.
Dekfordt initiates parking garage real estate funds in which private and institutional investors can invest. The focus is on investing in mobility hubs as a good stable asset class and making the urban environment more sustainable. More than 700 million euros in parking garage transactions have now been made in Europe.
