Segro is continuing to grow its logistics portfolio in the Spanish market. The British Socimi has acquired a distribution centre measuring 28,500 m2 in Granollers (Barcelona), leased to the logistics operator ID Logistics, with which Segro has a long-term agreement.
The asset was constructed in 2019 and is located thirty kilometres from Barcelona, with easy access to the A7 and C17 motorways. The group has highlighted “the location and access of the asset for distribution across the south of Europe”.
The company, founded in 1920, entered Spain in 2015 with the development of a logistics centre in Martorelles (Barcelona). Since then, Segro has purchased a 16,000 m2 logistics park in Coslada (Madrid), another 49,000 m2 site in Castellar del Vallès (Barcelona), a second plot in Martorelles, where it is constructing an asset spanning 20,000 m2, and a plot in San Fernando de Henares.
Segro has also added other plots in Getafe (Madrid), Sant Esteve Sesrovires (Barcelona), Mollet del Vallès (Barcelona) to its portfolio, as well as a second building in Coslada (Madrid), and Villaverde (Madrid). In total, the firm has a portfolio spanning 400,000 m2 of constructed space in Spain and another 70,000 m2 under construction.
