The site is at the western edge of the Port, in the vicinity of two state-of-the-art container terminals, offers potential customers a strategic location to establish their logistics operations. Export companies in particular can benefit from the infrastructure and access to one of the world’s largest sea freight terminals. The site is also attractive given its proximity to the Airbus Finkenwerder production facilities in Hamburg.
In line with its commitment to sustainability, Goodman is pleased to develop another brownfield site and will co-operate closely with the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) on the project. The site is owned by the HPA, which is responsible for the port management. Goodman was awarded the development tender by the HPA as it presented the best overall concept for the site.
Flexible use of the four planned units is guaranteed including a warehouse clear height of up to 12.20 metres and floor slabs that will comply with the requirements of all three water hazard classes (WHC).
“The site on Genter Ufer in Hamburg is an absolute prime location. We are therefore confident in the success of our speculative development project. The Group’s strong capital base is also a key advantage for us, ensuring that the projects can be developed quickly,” explains Andreas Fleischer, Goodman Regional Director for Germany.
“We are delighted that, with Goodman, we have found a strong investor for the Port of Hamburg. It is important that the few port sites still vacant are used as efficiently as possible. The concept from Goodman allows this to happen,” says Tino Klemm, Head of Finance and Property of Hamburg Port Authority.
Goodman opened an office in Hamburg in the summer of 2012 and used this as a base to make contact with potential interested parties. The project on the western edge of the port is part of the Group’s long-term investment strategy in the key logistics location of Hamburg and the wider northern German region.
