Goodman, the Roissy-en-France Urban Area Community Council (CARPF) and the land developer RHEA have teamed up for a new logistics park for the Ile-de-France region. The logistics park is unique in size, comprising three separate buildings of 43,000m², 49,000m² and 98,000m² respectively, occupying a total area of 37 hectares. Planning permission for building and environmental permits will be filed in the first quarter of 2019 as Goodman prepares to meet the requirements of its prospective customers.
The park is situated in the municipality of Le Mesnil-Amelot within the urban development zone of Chapelle de Guivry and adjacent to Paris’ major airport – Paris Charles-de-Gaulle and just 27 kilometres to the centre of Paris. The site is bordered by the future East Roissy bypass – a continuation of the ‘greater Paris Super Express Way’ (RN1104). In addition, the site will benefit from the terminus station of the Grand Paris Express rail line that is planned to be completed in 2024, facilitating an easy commute for the park’s future workforce.
The director of Goodman France, Philippe Arfi, said: “This project at Le Mesnil-Amelot will be an opportunity for Goodman to provide our customers with leading-edge logistics facilities in a highly-sought after location, showcasing all of our expertise in the development of logistics centres around the world. We are honoured that CARPF, Roissy Development and RHEA have again placed their trust in us, confirming our significant contribution to the economic development of the area.”
