Urban Industrial


Founding partners Jan Brouns and Arthur Verkerk formed Urban Industrial in 2015 for the purpose of building and managing an industrial real estate platform. Collectively Jan and Arthur have more than 40 years of experience in the asset class industrial real estate.


Urban Industrial is an Amsterdam based real estate platform that focuses on industrial and logistics real estate in The Netherlands, both focussed on acquiring assets and on providing loans on this asset class:

  • acquisition and development of multi let/light industrial buildings in the Randstad
  • providing industrial real estate loans
  • acquisition of NPL/ SPL industrial real estate loan portfolio’s

Urban Industrial is funded by substantial long-term institutional capital and has already established a significant portfolio and pipeline of industrial assets and loans in The Netherlands.


Urban Industrial’s strategy is primarily focused on the Randstad area in The Netherlands.


The multi-tenant light industrial market is an under appreciated asset class that represent good value with favorable long term income and capital characteristics. Furthermore, there is a severe funding gap in the Dutch Industrial Finance market as a result of new regulation, which is forcing banks to decrease industrial real estate lending.
