Goodman, a global property expert in logistics and business space, has acquired 26,000 square meters of land in Castellbisbal (Barcelona) and will begin the construction of new warehouses during the second half of the year. The logistics giant is looking for non-finalist land near major cities for the development of new logistics platforms and currently has 285,000 square meters of land under development.
Finalist land in Spain have zoning limitations that prevent the installation of ramps or the development of warehouses that exceed a specific, both of which are essential characteristics for modern, multilevel logistics platforms. Therefore, the company is looking for virgin lands to develop.
Goodman is already working on its first multilevel platform in Spain in Molins de Rei (Barcelona). The warehouse, which Goodman is building for use by DSV, will consist of two connected buildings, each 10.5 meters high.
Last week, Goodman delivered 32,645 square meter centre in the Villadangos del Páramo industrial estate, in León, to Decathlon. The company will also conclude work on 75,000 square meter platform in Alcalá de Henares in June.
