Logicenters is now to expand its presence in Jönköping by developing a new logistics facility in Torsvik. The property is estimated to be 32,400 m2 in size. The development is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2020 and is expected to be completed in early 2021.
Having developed a number of logistics properties in Jönköping, Logicenters is continuing to strengthen its presence in the region. This 32,400 m2 logistics facility will be located on Möbelvägen in Torsvik. The property is to be built on speculation and must therefore be developed to suit both a single tenant as well as several different ones. The development is scheduled to begin in March and is expected to be completed in early 2021. As with Logicenters’ other new developments, the property will have a clear environmental profile and will be prepared for the installation of solar cells on the roof.
“This development will further strengthen our business offering and will enable us to meet customers who value rapid access to logistics properties, something that we notice is in increasing demand. We see tremendous potential in the area and are therefore very pleased to strengthen our presence in Torsvik. The region is one of the country’s most important logistics hubs,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Logicenters has been active in the Jönköping region for many years. The company’s tenants in the area include Babyshop, Bring and Kitron. The new development will take place on an attractive site in the area, near IKEA and Elgiganten, and directly adjacent to the property where Kitron is the tenant.
Logicenters and Kilenkrysset are once again working on a collaboration. Together, the parties will develop a 120,000 m2 site in Staffanstorp outside Malmö. Logicenters has the opportunity to build on 60,000 m2 of the site and the initial plans are construct a modern 24,000 m2 logistics facility next year. There are not yet any confirmed tenants.
Following several joint real estate projects, including one in Bålsta earlier this year, Logicenters and Kilenkrysset have once again decided to work together. This time it is on the development of a 120,000 m2 site in Staffanstorp outside Malmö. Logicenters will take possession of the site in early 2020 and construction can take place on up to 60,000 m2 of the total site. In the initial phase of the project, Logicenters intends to develop a logistics facility with approximately 24,000 m2 of leasable space based on speculation. Construction is to start before summer 2020 and will be scheduled for completion in early 2021.
“One of Logicenters’ primary strengths is that we are able to offer modern logistics facilities at strategically the most important locations in the regions where we have a presence. This project in Staffanstorp, with its attractive location outside Malmö and close proximity to the Continent, is further proof of this. The land purchase in Staffanstorp is an important piece of the puzzle for us and it will be fun to work on the land development with Kilenkrysset with whom we have previously successfully worked on many occasions,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The site acquired is located at Västanvägen in Kronoslätt’s Logistics Park. With its proximity to Malmö and the Öresund region, the area’s geographical location is very attractive to many different types of companies. In the past, companies such as Bring Frigo, Kuehne + Nagel and Microsoft have chosen to establish themselves in the business park.
“Logicenters shares our vision of contributing to increased growth in the region, with access to smart logistics playing an important role. In August, Microsoft chose to buy from us in the same area and earlier this year we extended the lease with Alfa Laval for its head office. We are experiencing significant demand from companies wanting to establish themselves in the region so it is both gratifying and valuable to once again be entering into a partnership with Logicenters,” says Jan Persson, CEO at Kilenkrysset, who further believes that the good cooperation with Staffanstorp municipality is facilitating this positive development and space still available for smaller logistics establishments.
Logicentersin uusi 18 300 neliömetrin logistiikkakeskus rakennetaan Kercan logistiikka-alueelle Keravalle, keskeiselle paikalle Helsinki-Vantaan lentokentän sekä E75-moottoritien läheisyyteen. Lähellä sijaitseva Savion rautatieasema tarjoaa myös erinomaiset työmatkayhteydet Helsinkiin. Uudessa logistiikkakeskuksessa kiinnitetään erityistä huomiota energiatehokkuuteen. Keskuksen katolle asennetaan aurinkopaneelit ja keskus lämmitetään maalämmöllä.
Logistiikkayhtiö Dachser vuokraa tilasta noin 4 600 neliömetriä. Vuokrasopimus kattaa 4 000 neliömetriä läpivirtausterminaalia ja 600 neliömetriä toimistotilaa. Kiinteistön on määrä valmistua syksyllä 2020, ja sen rakentamisesta vastaa rakennusyhtiö Lehto Tilat Oy.
”Olemme erittäin tyytyväisiä, että logistiikkakeskuksen kehittäminen Keravalla on alkanut. Kerava on sijaintinsa, loistavien yhteyksien ja kilpailukykyisen vuokratasonsa myötä hyvin vetovoimainen alue. On hienoa, että kaupunki on päättänyt panostaa logistiikka-alan kehittämiseen alueellaan. Meillä on jo entuudestaan hyvät suhteet Dachserin kanssa, mikä tekee yhteisen kehitystyön aloittamisesta entistä ilahduttavampaa”, kertoo Logicenters Finlandin kaupallinen johtaja Jarkko Äikää.
”Moderni logistiikkaterminaali Keravalla lähellä Vuosaaren satamaa ja pääjunarataa tarjoaa logistisesti erinomaisen sijainnin Dachserille nyt ja tulevaisuudessa. Samalla pystymme tarjoamaan suomalaisille vienti– ja tuontiyhtiöille entistä monipuolisempia palveluita kotimaan markkinoille. Joustava yhteistyö Logicentersin ja Keravan kaupungin kanssa mahdollistaa meille kasvutarinamme jatkamisen Suomessa“, kertoo Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director, European Logistics Finland, Dachser Finland Oy.
”Kerava on kaupunkistrategiassaan sitoutunut vahvasti elinkeinoelämän kehittämiseen. Logistiikka on modernin toimintaympäristön keskeisimpiä toimialoja. Uuden logistiikkakeskuksen myötä Kercan logistiikka-alue kasvaa ja se lisää koko kaupungin elinvoimaisuutta. Myös kymmenien uusien työpaikkojen syntyminen on aivan loistavaa”, kertoo Keravan kaupunginjohtaja Kirsi Rontu.
Yhdellä pääkaupunkiseudun parhaista logistiikka-alueista sijaitsevassa uudessa logistiikkakeskuksessa on vielä noin 13 000 neliömetriä vuokrattavissa. Tilat ovat herättäneet jo kiinnostusta useissa alan toimijoissa.
This Monday marked the start of construction on the property that Logicenters is developing in Landskrona, Skåne. The modern logistics facility with solar cells on the roof is scheduled to be available to tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail during 2020.
In February 2019, Logicenters announced that it is undertaking a development in Skåne for the first time. Ground has now been broken on the 24,000 m2 logistics facility at Kronan Logistics Park in Landskrona. In addition to the property’s modern specifications, solar cells will be installed on the roof, in line with Logicenters’ strategy on sustainability and energy efficiency.
Present at the groundbreaking ceremony was Eva Sterner, Head of Development at Logicenters and Torkild Strandberg, the mayor of Landskrona. Representing Thomas Cook Travel Retail were Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager, Mikaela Andersson, Project Manager Warehouse and Lars Bording, Director of Airshoppen.
“I am pleased that Logicenters is establishing itself on the Skåne market with this modern new development. Landskrona is ideally positioned in an important logistics hub in the region. In addition, half of the property is still available for anyone looking for an outstanding logistics site in the Öresund region,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The logistics facility is scheduled for completion during the second quarter of 2020. Tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail will utilise 12,000 m2 of the property’s total of 24,000 m2, divided into 10,000 m2 of warehouse space, a 1,500 m2 mezzanine and 500 m2 of office space.
“When the property is ready, we will be able to increase capacity for our online shopping service Airshoppen, which is important to us. It is exciting to see construction beginning and we are pleased that Logicenters has been able to meet our logistical requirements, especially regarding sustainability,” says Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager at Thomas Cook Travel Retail.
Since May 2018, Logicenters has been developing a new logistics facility just outside Copenhagen. At the time development began, a lease was also signed with Havi Logistics, which have moved into 4,500 m2 leaving 8,900 m2 available for another tenant.
Logicenters’ new logistics facility at Vejleåvej 11 in the industrial district of Winthersminde outside Copenhagen has now been completed. A lease was signed with Havi Logistics back in May 2018 when the development was beginning. The lease is for a logistics area of 4,500 m2 and comprises freezer, refrigerated and traditional storage. Havi Logistics has moved into the property, which has a total area of 13,400 m2. This means that there is still 8,900 m2 of modern high ceiling logistics space available for a new tenant.
“We have cooperated closely with Havi Logistics throughout the development process to ensure that its needs have beenfully met. At the same time, we have succeeded in constructing a generic facility complying with modern specifications so that the facility can also be adapted for tenants wishing to move into the remaining 8,900 m2. It is a strategic position for us to develop a state-of-the-art facility and the property is part of our investment in increasing our presence in the Copenhagen area,” says Mikael Sahlin Olesen, Asset Manager at Logicenters.
