This Monday marked the start of construction on the property that Logicenters is developing in Landskrona, Skåne. The modern logistics facility with solar cells on the roof is scheduled to be available to tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail during 2020.
In February 2019, Logicenters announced that it is undertaking a development in Skåne for the first time. Ground has now been broken on the 24,000 m2 logistics facility at Kronan Logistics Park in Landskrona. In addition to the property’s modern specifications, solar cells will be installed on the roof, in line with Logicenters’ strategy on sustainability and energy efficiency.
Present at the groundbreaking ceremony was Eva Sterner, Head of Development at Logicenters and Torkild Strandberg, the mayor of Landskrona. Representing Thomas Cook Travel Retail were Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager, Mikaela Andersson, Project Manager Warehouse and Lars Bording, Director of Airshoppen.
“I am pleased that Logicenters is establishing itself on the Skåne market with this modern new development. Landskrona is ideally positioned in an important logistics hub in the region. In addition, half of the property is still available for anyone looking for an outstanding logistics site in the Öresund region,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The logistics facility is scheduled for completion during the second quarter of 2020. Tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail will utilise 12,000 m2 of the property’s total of 24,000 m2, divided into 10,000 m2 of warehouse space, a 1,500 m2 mezzanine and 500 m2 of office space.
“When the property is ready, we will be able to increase capacity for our online shopping service Airshoppen, which is important to us. It is exciting to see construction beginning and we are pleased that Logicenters has been able to meet our logistical requirements, especially regarding sustainability,” says Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager at Thomas Cook Travel Retail.
A facility in Landskrona marks the first step into the Skåne market for real estate provider Logicenters. A modern logistics facility featuring roof-top solar panels is to be constructed at the Kronan business park. The 24,000 m2 property is scheduled to be completed in 2020 and Thomas Cook Travel Retail will be the first tenant to move in.
As a market leader and developer of modern logistics facilities, Logicenters has a significant presence in logistics hubs in the Nordic region. The company is now establishing itself on the Skåne market via a new development on Företagsvägen in Kronan business park, an excellent logistics location in the Öresund region. The facility will be located in a very visible site along the E6 highway; companies such as Santa Maria and Oatly have been present in the business park for several years now.
“We are delighted to have found the right location for us in Skåne. Landskrona is investing heavily in logistics and we are positively inclined towards more projects here in the future. It is gratifying that Thomas Cook has chosen to work with us and we look forward to a long-term cooperation. For those who are looking for a good logistics site in the Öresund region, the other half of the property is still available,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
In addition to the facility’s modern specifications, solar panels will be installed on the roof, which is in line with Logicenters’ strategy on sustainability and energy efficiency. Construction begins immediately, and the facility is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2020. The tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail will utilise 12,000 m2 of the property’s total of 24,000 m2, divided into 10,000 m2 of warehouse space, a 1,500 m2 mezzanine and 500 m2 of office space.
“Our new location at Kronan business park will enable us to increase capacity for our online shopping service Airshoppen, from which our travellerscan pre-order their duty-free goods. Logicenters is an obvious partner because they are able to meet our high logistics requirements, including that the property is as energy efficient and sustainable as possible,” says Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager at Thomas Cook Travel Retail.
“We warmly welcome Thomas Cook to Landskrona. This once again demonstrates the strengths offered by Landskrona as a business location, with the city being attractive to various industries,” says Torkild Strandberg, Mayor of Landskrona.
CBRE has served as a consultant to Logicenters regarding the leasing of the 12,000 m2 area to Thomas Cook Travel Retail at Kronan business park.
