ARIELLE D’HAUTERIVES & IDYL
The ways and means…of finding the right tenant.
Being an owner and managing the rental of your property without your hair turning grey is definitely an art. Particularly when you are a gallery owner, like Arielle d’Hauterives.
The decision to display sculptures, drawings and paintings in a larger space has led to a lot of questions: What should I do with my old premises? What type of businesses should I look for? How much rent should I ask for? What planning applications will have to be lodged?
Having already used the services of Atrium.Brussels in the past, Arielle knew the contact who would be able to answer her questions.
After analysing the potential of the retail unit, Atrium set its rent with the owner, a task supported by Atrium’s knowledge of the visitor rate and spending power of the district.
Finally, the Agency looked at the prospective traders whose projects were in keeping with the district…and with the expectations of the owner of 37, rue Tasson Snel, in Saint-Gilles.
During this time, a few hundred metres from the rue Tasson Snel, Charlotte and Marie Brabant were roaming the streets and lanes of Saint-Gilles, searching for premises that matched their concept. And the old art gallery suited the atmosphere of IDYL to a T: modern and cosy, discreet yet well-lit. But above all, it was in perfect condition!
Atrium therefore quickly put the Brabant sisters in contact with the owner. Delighted to be able to hand over the keys of her premises with complete confidence, Arielle d’Hauterives was also able to help with realising an original and bold concept, halfway between well-being and (full) awareness.
I had already used Atrium’s invaluable services to find premises in the city centre. Their effectiveness is guaranteed, and I witnessed this again when looking for my tenants. If this is what can generally be expected from a public service, I can only highlight their professionalism.
