The Town Hall of Sevilla has awarded a plot of land spanning 30,220 m2, with a buildability of 38,580 m2, in the Higuerón Sur area of the city, to Mercadona for €10.8 million.
The supermarket company is planning to build a warehouse on the site to serve its online shopping service in Sevilla and the surrounding area. Construction work is expected to begin in 2020.
Mercadona already has a similar kind of centre, which it calls a “hive” in the city of Valencia. Moreover, it plans to open two new hives in 2019, in Barcelona and Madrid.
