Verdion starts speculative construction of 20,000 m² logistics space in Verdion Airpark Berlin
Verdion has started the third and last phase of construction of the Verdion Airpark Berlin in Schönefeld with the development of four 5,000 square metre logistics buildings. Construction has begun on a speculative basis. Completion is planned for the second quarter of 2020.
The planned buildings are highly energy-efficient and each one features five loading ramps, a floor load capacity of 50 KN/m² plus office space and communal areas. This means the exact layout remains flexible for the tenant.
“Logistics near the city has never been in such demand” says Stephan Dalbeck, Business and Portfolio Director von Verdion. “Whether it’s for online stores with same-day delivery, fresh produce or pharma logistics companies: When it’s a matter or reaching Berlin customers quickly, there is currently no other logistics development located closer to the city centre.” You can get to the Mitte district in around 30 minutes from the Verdion Airpark Berlin.
Dalbeck goes on: “The spaces are particularly suitable for Berlin SME’s or even startups where the distribution activity has outgrown the capacity of the shipping area in the office post room or the garage. Because fast market access is essential for many companies, we are starting the development on a speculative basis. However, many elements are flexible with regard to individual layout.
A 10,000 square metre logistics building has already been completed as part of the third phase of construction at Verdion Airpark Berlin. It is fully leased to the logistics company DACHSER SE. Building work in phase 1 started back in 2016. Tenants in the first 29,500 square metre section of the buildings include the food delivery service company Bringmeister, the metal industry company PUK and the logistics company DACHSER SE. Phase 2, which comprises a 22,150 square metre hall, was completed last year. Half of the area is leased to DÜRKOP GmbH, a supplier of replacement parts for branded workshops and the other half to Streiff & Helmold, a service provider for the rail industry.
In addition, the project managers tricer management GmbH and the architects office Kühling are also involved in the development.
