Logicenters continues to invest in the Oslo region with the latest acquisition of the logistics asset comprising approximately 18,500m². The tenant is ODA, formerly Kolonial.no, Norway’s leading provider of online grocery delivery. Logicenters is scheduled to take possession in the first quarter of 2022, which is also when ODA will move in. The new facility also has a clear sustainability profile, including a solar panel installation expected to generate approximately 1.1 GWh of renewable electricity per year. The property is also located in a geographically strategic location at Drammensveien 189 in the municipality of Lier. The purchase price was not disclosed.
“Logicenters is very happy for acquiring a sustainable and state-of-the-art facility for last-mile distribution, which is also leased to one of the Nordic region’s fastest-growing companies. ODA has a clear focus on technology and sustainability, two factors that are in line with our ambition to provide our tenants with the logistics facilities of tomorrow. They also value efficient logistics solutions from producer to end customer, something we are confident we can provide with our new and future-proof facility. We look forward to a long and successful collaboration”, said Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
“The Oslo region is an important location for us, given the area’s great position, high population density and growth. The new facility is located alongside the E18 motorway, 30 km outside the Oslo city centre. As ODA focuses heavily on efficient last-mile distribution, the geographical position of the distribution centre is ideal for fast and efficient deliveries to consumers”, said Ruben Krantz Kringstad, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
The facility is ODA’s second distribution centre in eastern Norway and is designed for a high turnover of goods and to meet the requirements for efficient delivery to customers in the region. “The fact that we are now establishing a new warehouse in the Oslo region is very inspiring. We are pleased that Logicenters, which focuses on the development and long-term ownership of logistics properties, will be the new owner of our facility when Eneo Eiendom has completed the development. We look forward to a good collaboration in the future”, said founder and CEO Karl Alveng Munthe-Kaas at ODA.
