Axiare Patrimonio Socimi SA has leased a total surface area of 42,000 m2 to the company Transaher. This is the first turnkey project measuring more than 30,000 m2 to have been constructed in the first (logistics) ring of Madrid since 2010.
Cushman & Wakefield, the global leader in real estate services, has advised the Socimi on this operation, which includes a logistics warehouse measuring 26,500 m2 and a cross-docking building covering 16,300 m2. The latter will also include a surface area for office use, where Transaher will establish its main headquarters.
Both buildings will be constructed with Class A specifications for logistics operators and will have a Gold LEED certification.
“We think that this is a very important operation for the owner of the project, because it has managed to close a turnkey operation spanning more than 40,000 m2, as well as for the tenant, which is going to have some new flagsgip facilities, with very high-quality standards. In this sense, the efficiency of the project will be maximised”, explained Guillermo García-Almuzara Rodríguez, Director of Logistics & Industrial at Cushman & Wakefield Spain.
“Transaher is a logistics company that is continuously expanding and through this project, we will boost our two business lines: Transport in the cross-docking building, and Logistics. By having two buildings in the same park, we will be able to strengthen the Same-day and home-delivery services to Logistics clients, as well as significantly extend the cut-off times for warehouse orders, by increasing the synergy with transport. Moreover, the location is exceptional in terms of connections, which will positively influence distribution”, said Mª Luz Cobos, Director General of the Transaher Group.
Completion in 2018
The development of Axiare’s logistics park in San Fernando de Henares spans more than 70,000 m2, of which 60% is already leased. The park is home to another logistics building, measuring 28,000 m2, which is configured to deal with demand for spaces of 5,000 m2 upwards. Completion of the warehouses is scheduled for H1 2018.
“We think that the San Fernando park is going to be a role model, both in terms of the quality and versatility of the building, as well as its magnificent location and environmental features, given that it will benefit from a Gold LEED energy rating”, added García-Almuzara.
