Garbe Industrial Real Estate plans the construction of two new logistics halls in Werne (Unna district), Germany. An older, outdated logistics facility is currently being demolished for this purpose. A firm rental commitment has already been made for the first of the two halls. Garbe Industrial Real Estate acquired the former IKEA logistics site in Werne two years ago. The entire complex consists of two properties connected by a bridge. The tenant for the first of the two new halls will be Euziel International. Garbe Industrial Real Estate is currently in talks with potential tenants for the second hall.
"The demand for modern logistics real estate is increasing," said Jan Dietrich Hempel, Managing Director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate. "Especially on the north-eastern edge of the Ruhr area, there are hardly any large, contiguous areas that can be used for various logistical services”.
In addition, the Hamburg project developer has recently leased parts of its existing logistics centre on the Werne site to Imperial Industrial Logistics. The logistics centre is located on the edge of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region and is connected to the motorway network. The property is located only a few kilometres from Motorways 1 and 2, which connect Hamburg with Saarbrucken and Berlin with Oberhausen. It is 80 kilometres to Duisburg harbour and 25 kilometres to Dortmund airport.
"Location and equipment have convinced Imperial Industrial Logistics," said Jan Dietrich Hempel. The logistics service provider belonging to Imperial Logistics International stores spare parts for mechanical engineering in Werne. The company uses around 22,500m² of hall and office space for this purpose. The ideal location of the site enables fast distribution. Colliers International acted as an intermediary and consultant for the letting. Another tenant is the Austrian manufacturer of sun and weather protection systems Hella, which uses an area of around 14,500m² for the production of awnings.
