The first phase of a 35,800 sqm light industrial development in Seevetal, south of Hamburg, has been fully let, less than one month after construction work began.
To meet increasing demand for high-quality warehouse and distribution space in the area, Goodman commenced work on Seevetal Industrial Park in October. Phase one, totalling 30,930 sqm, will regenerate the former brownfield site into high-specification warehouse, showroom, and office space. Signalling the strong demand and competition for space, a customer has already secured the facility ahead of its completion in Summer 2022. A further 5,000 sqm will be delivered as part of phase two of the development.
Situated directly on the border of Hamburg, Seevetal and Hamburg are easily accessed from Seevetal Industrial Park via the A7, A1 and A 261 freeways, with the Port of Hamburg and Hamburg Airport nearby, as well as strong public transport links. The Park will be highly sustainable, with features including roof-mounted solar photovoltaics (PV), office heating through air source heat pumps, rainwater harvesting, infrastructure for electric vehicles, smart energy metering to optimise energy consumption, and a focus on biodiversity, from the design to the landscaping and greenery.
Markus Meyer, Head of Northern Germany at Goodman, said:
“Customer demand for high-quality space in key locations has never been greater and the speed at which we’ve fully let phase one of Seevetal Industrial Park demonstrates this. Our plans for the Park reflect Goodman’s global strategy and focus on delivering facilities that are uncompromising on design and sustainability, in strategic locations across the world. We’re proud to have secured early success for the development as we explore further opportunities in the area, recognising the high competition for space from an already thriving and growing industrial and distribution market.”
