SEGRO has acquired a portfolio of Spanish logistics land sites for an undisclosed amount. All of the sites are in Barcelona and Madrid and are able to support approximately 240,000m² of modern, sustainable warehouse space, developable over the next five years, which will allow SEGRO to continue to build scale and increase its presence in Spain.
The sites total 41 hectares and are all in locations within close proximity to major population hubs, making them ideal to meet ongoing occupier demand that has been further strengthened by the rapid rise in e-commerce. Five of the assets are in Barcelona, including development sites in Cerdanyola del Valles, Terrassa, Palau-Solita i Plegamans, Viladecans as well as an existing, fully let 14,000m² warehouse facility in the Polinya municipality. The remaining sites are in Madrid including in Paracuellos, strategically located next to Madrid Barajas Airport and two further sites bordering the M45 orbital road in San Fernando de Henares and Villaverde.
Marco Simonetti, Southern Europe Business Unit Director for SEGRO, said: “This acquisition will significantly expand our footprint in Spain, an exciting market where we are growing our portfolio of high quality, well-located assets to meet the increasing demand for prime, sustainable warehousing. It will complement our existing portfolio in Barcelona and Madrid, helping to establish us as a leader in modern warehousing and industrial property in these important logistics markets.”
