Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH creates further settlement potential in the Berlin/Brandenburg metropolitan region. In Oberkrämer (Oberhavel district), the Hamburg-based project developer has started to build a logistics property with a total area of around 21,000 square metres. Construction is taking place with no fixed rental commitments. Completion is scheduled for the first quarter of next year.

The property is part of a logistics park that Garbe Industrial Real Estate is developing on a 146,000 square metre site in the "Vehlefanz" industrial estate. The investment volume totals 70 million euros.

In the first construction phase, a logistics center with 15,000 square meters of hall space was built, which is now rented to Kuehne + Nagel. In the second construction phase, a logistics property with 30,000 square metres of warehouse space was built, which the fulfilment service provider VAH Jager has since moved into. "The third construction phase, which we are currently developing with our partners, completes the logistics park," emphasises Adrian Zellner, Member of the Executive Board at Garbe Industrial Real Estate.

The property will consist of a 20,000 square metre hall. It will have 20 dock levellers and two ground-level sectional doors for loading and unloading trucks. "This makes the new building suitable for logistics services of various kinds," explains Adrian Zellner. In addition, there will be about 1,000 square metres of offices and social rooms. Parking spaces for a total of 60 cars and four trucks are planned for the logistics park's outdoor area.
"Berlin has developed into one of the most dynamic regions on the German logistics real estate market. Especially in the past two years, most of the available hall space has been let there. The rapid leasing successes for the first two halls confirm this trend and show that we were spot on with our location decision four years ago," says Adrian Zellner. "For this reason, I am optimistic that the third property will also be fully let before completion."

As one of the leading German project developers, Garbe Industrial Real Estate pays special attention to the issue of sustainability in the realisation of the property. A photovoltaic system will be installed on the entire roof area to generate renewable energy. The company uses energy-efficient LEDs to light the hall. Some of the parking spaces on the outdoor grounds will be equipped with e-charging points. Garbe Industrial Real Estate is aiming for certification according to the Gold Standard of the German Sustainable Building Council for the property.

The proximity to the capital makes the location particularly attractive. The logistics park developed by Garbe Industrial Real Estate is located in the north-west of Berlin on the A 10 motorway, about 1.5 kilometres from the Oberkrämer junction. From there it is about 30 kilometres via the A 111 to the centre of Berlin. The location is connected to Hamburg via the Berliner Ring and the A 24, to Hanover via the A 2 and to Leipzig via the A 9.
