“The world is changing rapidly and we’ve reached an inflection point of global trends shaping the future. This is also impacting the industrial real estate sector. Our customers are specifically looking for solutions for the new (last mile) supply chain, which is surprisingly still an undefined and untapped segment. It must (and can) be done in a greener, smarter, and better way. We have to combine forces!

Through commitment to the net zero carbon neutrality challenge, we provide urban real estate that supports the new, CO2 neutral supply chain.

We do things differently and all based upon our very own foundational pillars.

We are URBZ Capital.”

URBZ Capital Announces Significant Team Expansion to Accelerate Growth

Amsterdam, 14 February 2024 – URBZ Capital (“URBZ”), a real estate asset and investment management boutique specializing in the industrial property sector, proudly announces a substantial team expansion in 2023. This strategic move positions the company to capitalize on a generational market opportunity and solidify its market presence, particularly in urban infill locations across the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

As the real estate landscape undergoes dynamic shifts and presents unprecedented opportunities, URBZ recognizes the critical importance of fortifying its team. The strategic team expansion, which brings the total team to 11 members today, is aligned with the company's steadfast commitment to capturing momentum in capital markets through accelerated acquisitions while upholding the firm's commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Simultaneously, by repositioning assets and executing significant renovation programs, URBZ aims to build upon the strong secular tailwinds for the industrial sector and enhance the ESG credentials of its portfolio over time, as anchored in URBZ’s foundational pillars.
