We would like to welcome all our readers to Issue 31 of DLA Piper’s Real Estate Gazette.

This issue is devoted to the impact of digitalization on the real estate industry and the changes we can expect to see in the future. Blockchain is a concept that crops up in several of the articles.

This issue also features an interview between DLA Piper Amsterdam partner Rutger Oranje and Marco Vrijburg, co-founder of TBD (ToBeDeveloped) B.V., which has developed a state-of-the-art office building in Amsterdam called “The Flow”. Mr Vrijburg describes the features of the building, explaining how everything he has learned from the IT industry has been incorporated into its design and why he believes tenants will be willing to pay more for additional services.

We hope you enjoy reading this latest issue and if you would like to find out more about any of the topics covered, please feel free to contact the authors, who will be happy to help.
