Cultural heritage and Estates

In the Netherlands there are many cultural heritage and estates. Our Cultural Heritage & Estates sector group focuses on these special objects.

Preservation and redevelopment cultural heritage & estates

The preservation of cultural heritage and estates is costly. For the preservation and exploitation of cultural heritage and estates it is therefore sometimes important that new "economic" supports are found and new revenue models are developed.

The new features on estates, churches, industrial heritage and other monuments do not always fit in the zoning plan. We can be helpful with a quick scan of the zoning plan. Because of new regulations it is easier to give another desired (temporarily) function to empty buildings in deviation from the zoning plan. This creates opportunities for transformation of cultural property and estates.

When redeveloping cultural heritage, there is often a collaboration between various parties. This cooperation can be structured in different ways, depending on the objectives and requirements. Cultural heritage can be given in use in different ways. For example, a choice can be made for the conclusion of a lease or for the establishment of a right of leasehold.
