As more and more office building is downtown area a becoming vacant due to the economic downfall, flexible management structures for real estate maintenance are needed.

Since its start up in 2005 my office space has been housed in temporary vacant office buildings in Amsterdam. I have moved twice and have been fortunate enough to stay over 3 years in each location.

Thanks to new management initiatives vacant real estate is rented out temporarily to start ups at low cost. The rent covers the maintenance of the building until the owner knows what to do with it. In the mean time, there is a vibrant start up culture in the downtown centers instead of an exodus of business.
