Renovated WTC The Hague festively reopened
The completely renovated World Trade Center The Hague was at the centre of attention when it was officially reopened on Thursday June 16 by Karsten Klein, The Hague’s alderman for Economic Affairs, Harbours, Welfare and Health.
The WTC The Hague presented its renovations and new facilities to its tenants, residents and business contacts. “The renovations have turned the WTC The Hague into a lively ‘hub’ for international business in the Beatrixkwartier and in The Hague. Today’s reopening symbolises its growth and development in this area,” said alderman Karsten Klein. The renovated WTC The Hague gives The Hague a multi-facetted business hotspot which revolves around meeting each other, work, leisure and connections.
“Since opening its doors in 2012, WTC The Hague has always been on the map. It has always had extensive knowledge of the market, excellent facilities and has been able to anticipate and meet the needs of its clients.” With these words, Klein praised the World Trade Center. “This dramatic metamorphosis was needed in order to grow even more and to continue to make a significant contribution to The Hague’s economy in the years to come. The Municipality of The Hague is investing in this WTC because it symbolises collaboration and business in the city. Its diversity of tenants and prestigious events make WTC The Hague a driving force for national and international entrepreneurs. It is the place to meet, work and connect.”
Bas Jochims, Head of Asset Management Offices at Bouwinvest said “This make-over embodies Bouwinvest Office Fund’s vision of the future in which we are looking towards mixed use buildings that have several types of tenants offering a range of functions. We have now reached this at the WTC The Hague. WTC The Hague is more than just an office building – ‘it connects you to a world of possibilities’.”
The most noticeable change is the new main entrance, which has been moved to the Prinses Beatrixlaan. The main entrance opens onto a striking lobby which houses a 21 metre long escalator, the Shoku Noodle Bar, the trendy bar-brasserie Mondano, Njoy Fitness, an AH To Go and the Coffee Company. The previous entrance has been turned into a multi-functional conference venue that can accommodate up to 600 people.
