21 December 2017 – Forcadell
Forcadell, the real estate consultancy firm, has advised a company dedicated to the maintenance of lift equipment with more than 35 years of experience, on the purchase of an industrial warehouse measuring 2,300 m2. The company has undertaken this operation with the aim of expanding and improving its existing facilities.
The warehouse is located on the Bon Pastor industrial estate, in the district of Sant Andreu in Barcelona. This industrial estate, which is home to 350 modern and technological SMEs from various sectors, has become one of the stars of the Sant Andreu Economic Plan for 2017-2021: the Town Hall has spent €1.5 million on the initiative with the aim of boosting economic activity on the industrial estate.
According to Gerard Plana, Director of the Industrial-Logistics Department at Forcadell, “during the course of 2017, demand for industrial warehouses has recorded a very significant increase in terms of requests by companies. According to Forcadell’s Industrial-Logistics Market Report for H1 2017, the increase has represented a YoY variation of 136.9%, which means that we have seen more than twice as much demand as during the same period last year”.
