Building a project from the ground up, that's what gives us energy

Portfolio

CHANGE COURSE

Larendael invests in projects and ideas that are sustainable, innovative and challenging.
Creation and passion are in our DNA in this regard.
We like to build something from the ground up and have the commitment and creative entrepreneurship to actually realize it. Characteristics with which we realize impressive transformations in land development
and introduce special, innovative, concepts within tech, logistics and yacht building. And we are continuously expanding our field of work.
No matter how big the project, we keep speed in decisions thanks to a sound financial basis, our compact team and solid internal knowledge and market sense. Because we work with passion, every day gives us inspiration to create a better future for future generations.
Thinking in concepts

At the start of a project, we focus on the bigger picture. By taking all variables into account, we are able to develop a unique plan and enthuse stakeholders.
Water for strong positioning
The fact that our projects are primarily located on the waterfront is no coincidence. The waterfront location provides enormous opportunities to open up the land and optimize logistical processes and make them more sustainable.
Innovation as a strength

We are innovation-oriented and believe in the development and introduction of new or improved products, services and processes. Innovation is important to us to continuously improve effectiveness and efficiency.
Scalable

A future-proof approach means that we always look for opportunities to easily make existing configurations larger. We invest in structural solutions that will last for years.

Portfolio

At the end of August 2021, we purchased a parcel consisting of 43.5 acres of land and private water. We will also develop something unique here.

In a stately mansion dating from 1884, on the Amstel in Amsterdam, we have sustainably renovated an apartment complex.

Where there used to be pastures on the canal from Ghent to Terneuzen, we have developed one of the most sustainable recycling sites.
