Prologis is welcoming the first tenant at its building in San Fernando de Henares, in Madrid. The giant of the logistics sector has leased 10,600 m2 of space to Airpharm, out of a total surface area of 21,000 m2 that it has developed in the area. The entire complex spans a surface area of 90,000 m2 in total.
As a specialist in the supply of transport and storage services for chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, Airpharm has chosen this property due to “its proximity to the Madrid-Barajas Airport”, amongst other reasons, according to a statement issued by the company.
This operation by Prologis is further evidence of the good health of the logistics sector in Spain. In Madrid alone, the leasing of these kinds of spaces exceeded 920,000 m2 last year, registering record figures. Moreover, during the first quarter, the rental of logistics space rose by 61% with respect to the same period in 2017, when 310,000 m2 of space was leased.
In terms of Prologis, the Spanish subsidiary of the US operator, which has a presence in 19 countries, recorded turnover from rental income of €38 million last year and managed to let 95% of the total surface area that it owns in Spain.
