Frasers Property Industrial has secured a leasing deal with logistics service provider Neele-Vat at DC Hazeldonk. The 11,000 square metre state-of-the-art distribution centre in Hazeldonk, the Netherlands, consists of advanced warehouse facilities, as well as a mezzanine and office area.
The long-term leasing agreement was functioned by agents Cushman & Wakefield in February, only a few weeks after the facility’s completion. Neele-Vat’ site has become operational this month.
DC Hazeldonk is Frasers Property Industrial’s first brownfield development in the country and was completed in December 2021 according to schedule.
More than 80 per cent of building materials were sourced sustainably, meeting the latest sustainability standards including a BREEAM-NL ‘Excellent’ certification. The state-of the art distribution centre also includes CO2 based ventilation systems, electric vehicle parking spaces with charging stations, a Building Management System, as well as PV solar panels to generate energy and water-saving measurements.
Alexander Heubes, Managing Director Europe at Frasers Property Industrial, comments: “We are excited to welcome Dutch family business Neele-Vat in our unique single tenant facility in Hazeldonk. As this is our first brownfield development in the Netherlands, we are particularly proud that we – together with Goldbeck Netherlands – achieved its timely and efficient completion.”
Hiltjo van Dam, Director at Neele-Vat, says: “DC Hazeldonk is ideally located thanks to its close proximity to the A16, A27 and A58 highways, ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the Belgian border. Its strategic location greatly supports our growth strategy for warehousing, customs, air and sea freight and European distribution. The site is a perfect addition to our other distribution facilities in the same business park.”
DC Hazeldonk is located in the West-Brabant region, which was ranked as the second largest logistics hotspot in the Netherlands in 2020. The estate is about 30 minutes to the Ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam, making it accessible to approximately 170 million consumers within a 500 km radius.
