Frasers Property Industrial in Europe has commenced construction for DC Hazeldonk, its first brownfield development in the Netherlands. On completion, it will be a 11,000 square metre state-of-the-art distribution centre with mezzanine and office space.
Goldbeck Nederland has been appointed as the general building contractor for the project with MC2 as external project manager. Construction of DC Hazeldonk is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The development will start on a speculative basis and Frasers Property Industrial is confident in welcoming a new tenant early in 2022.
Alexander Heubes, Managing Director Europe at Frasers Property Industrial, comments: “We acquired this fully-tenanted property in Hazeldonk in 2019 with re-development intentions upon lease completion. It’s exciting to see our plans come to fruition this year.
“In a market dominated by XXL warehouses, DC Hazeldonk offers a unique single tenant opportunity, in a state-of-the-art and sustainable warehouse facility,” said Alexander Heubes.
DC Hazeldonk is ideally located in close proximity to the A16, A27 and A58 highways, ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the Belgian border, strategically positioning it for international transport. The new facility will target a BREEAM-NL ‘Excellent’ certification and at least 80 percent of the building materials will be sustainably sourced. It will also include CO2 based ventilation systems, parking spaces with charging stations, a Building Management System, as well as PV solar panels to generate energy and water-saving measurements.
Vincent Vierwind, Managing Director at Goldbeck Netherlands, comments: “After successfully collaborating abroad, we are very happy to continue our partnership with Frasers Property Industrial in the Netherlands. We look forward to working on the redevelopment of DC Hazeldonk and bringing the premium industrial facility to life.”
DC Hazeldonk is available for lease from January 2022. Cushman & Wakefield, the appointed leasing agent, is ready to receive expressions of interest.
