Frasers Property Industrial announced that it has fully leased out its warehouse and logistics space at Frasers Park Egelsbach in South Hesse, Germany.
The full-service provider for online shop interfaces, logistics fulfilment and shipping onQuality Deutschland GmbH has leased over 10,500 square meters, and in August, online store kyddo GmbH, which specialises in children's and baby accessories, moved into a warehouse of approximately 7,840 square meters and 780 square meters office space. Online wholesaler TB International GmbH leased approximately 9,600 square meters of warehouse space in June 2021.
Alexander Heubes, Managing Director Europe at Frasers Property Industrial, welcomes the new tenants to Frasers Park Egelsbach.
"The location has excellent transport links and offers attractive advantages to tenants from the e-commerce sector, including flexibility of space and leading sustainability features."
"We are pleased that, in close co-operation with the municipality, we can add value for our customers as well as the local community, especially through the implementation of sustainability measures that will have a positive impact on the eco-balance and biodiversity of the area.
"The successful leasing of Frasers Park Egelsbach is a significant achievement for our European portfolio," said Mr Heubes.
As part of the construction work, an adjacent stream was renaturalised, and the preservation of plant protection zones was ensured at Frasers Park Egelsbach. In addition, Frasers Property Industrial established a 5,000-square-metre lizard habitat and settled bee colonies on the site. Contributing to the sustainability initiatives are the photovoltaic systems on the roof. The development will run on electricity generated from renewable energy in the future and can thus be operated carbon neutral. By further incorporating green electricity into the electricity mix, the whole lifecycle of Frasers Park Egelsbach can be considered carbon neutral, based on a use period of 17 years. Fraser Park Egelsbach has achieved a German Council for Sustainable Building (DGNB) Gold certification.
Frasers Park Egelsbach also enjoys an excellent position in the economically strong Rhine-Ruhr region. The cities of Frankfurt am Main, Wiesbaden, Darmstadt and Offenbach can be reached in 30 minutes via the A5 and A661 freeways and the connection to the A3. To improve traffic flow onsite, Frasers Property Industrial installed a new roundabout at the entrance to the property.
Tobias Wilbrand, Mayor of the municipality of Egelsbach, is pleased for Frasers Park Egelsbach: "From the municipality's point of view, Frasers Park Egelsbach is a successful example of how logistics developments can be implemented with a good concept and intelligent solutions in the interests of nature and the local population. The fact that the development has been successful has a lot to do with the good relationship with the developer and the municipality. The municipality of Egelsbach thanks Frasers Property Industrial for the willingness to invest sustainably. Frasers Park Egelsbach is another step that contributes to securing the future viability of Egelsbach as a business location. We are now particularly pleased about the industrial park's goal of generating its own energy as far as possible with the help of green technology."
Martin Lahr, Managing Director at onQuality Deutschland GmbH, emphasises the collaborative partnership: "As a company in the fast-growing e-commerce sector, the rapid availability of flexible warehouse and logistics space in an infrastructurally favourable location was an important decision for us. Thanks to Frasers Property Industrial, we will be able to offer even better services to our customers in the future."
Christian Schwarzott, Managing Director at kyddo GmbH, comments on moving into the space in Egelsbach: "We strongly value the high sustainability standards that Frasers Park Egelsbach meets, which corresponds with our philosophy and aspirations as a family-run concept store with a wide range of premium products for children and babies. Our customers in Germany will benefit from the excellent delivery options enabled by the new location."
