Frasers Property Industrial has acquired a 10.8 hectare brownfield development site at business park Pannenhuis in Bemmel, the Netherlands, for the development of two premium warehouses. The site was acquired from Anthevast B.V., advised by I&S Vastgoed, and benefits from its close proximity to the A15 highway and the cities Nijmegen and Arnhem. Development of the first phase will start in the third quarter of 2021.
In collaboration with Over Engh Vastgoed as development partner and Hercuton (part of Janssen de Jong Groep) as general contractor, Frasers Property Industrial expects to start developing the first of two warehouses in the second half of the year. A state-of-the-art distribution center for one or two new customers will be constructed according to the latest modern building standards, targeting a certification BREEAM-NL ‘Very Good’ or higher. The new distribution center will include two equal-sized warehouse units of about 15,000 square metres each, and two separate office and mezzanine spaces of approximately 588 and 1,200 square metres respectively.
Alexander Heubes, Managing Director Europe at Frasers Property Industrial, comments: “We are excited about our fourth site acquisition in the Netherlands within six months and are particularly looking forward to leveraging the Bemmel site’s great location with our modern and sustainable development plans.
“This brownfield development perfectly illustrates how old industrial land can be revived in a sustainable way and the site’s proximity to the A15 highway and likely connection to the A12 highway in coming years supports its attractiveness for international transport.”
Misja Bakker, Director at Over Engh comments: “We are looking forward to supporting Frasers Property Industrial and Hercuton in developing the industrial estate at Bemmel, adding optimal value to the site and its environment. We strive to make maximum use of our skills and competencies to ensure a high-quality development that perfectly serves the needs of Frasers Property Industrial’s future tenants.”
Ivo van der Mark, CEO of Janssen de Jong Groep, comments: “At this brownfield development with Frasers Property Industrial and Over Engh in Bemmel, we will combine modern construction techniques with high sustainability standards. We are particularly enthusiastic about redesigning the site as a gasless building which follows the ongoing trend of industrial buildings going all-electric.”
