Kanaleneiland (“Channel island”) is situated between the Merwede channel and the Amsterdam-Rhine channel, in the southeastern part of Utrecht. This positions the area, also known as Business Island Utrecht, between Papendorp and the Central railway area (Utrecht’s CBD).
Kanaleneiland is easily accessible by rapid tram transport to and from the central railway station and has exits at highway/motorway A12.
The disctrict has enormous economic potential, provides a varied range of employment and has low rents for A1 locations. Companies which are located here include: Equens (international payment traffic), Berenschot (business advisory services), BDO, GEPU and Terberg leasing. In 2016 a new Van der Valk congress hotel, adjacent to the A12 highway, will be opened. Along the Merwede channel the young multi- tenant buildings (incubators) Vechtclub XL and The Alchemist were created in recent years. The Vechtclub XL (2500 m2) is a successful multi-tenant (shared-facility-building-complex) for the creative sector. More than 100 companies are located here. The Alchemist is a multi-tenant building for companies with mainly social functions.
