On 7 May 2019 the last reserved plot at Schiphol Logistics Park was signed over to real estate investment company Durfort Vastgoed. On the 24,691m2 lot, work will start at the end of this month on the construction of the Logistics Court Amsterdam warehouse, designed by Architecten_Lab. Construction company Aan de Stegge is expected to hand over the new building in December 2019.
This development of small-scale logistics units comprises warehouse space with a total lettable floor area of 13.289 m², a mezzanine of 1.821 m², and office space of 2.346 m², plus 105 on-site parking spaces. The warehouse can be divided into a maximum of nine independent units, of which some can be joined to create larger combined units. Each unit has at least two loading docks and an overhead door. The location and unit size make the building one of a kind.
Cees Smit, director of Durfort Vastgoed: “With the units varying from 1.250 tot 2.500 m2, the project is principally being developed for companies in the logistics chain, such as carriers, shipping agents and smaller Schiphol-oriented companies that need a limited storage capacity.”
Arnoud van der Wijk, project manager at SADC: “These smaller units are a new product being offered by Schiphol Logistics Park, and they broaden the variety of logistics space available close to Schiphol Airport.”
As well as having an A++ label, the building has been designed so that the entire roof can be fitted with solar panels. This means that in the long term the project can be made all electric, as it will able to provide a substantial percentage of its own power supply, partly because there is LED lighting in the offices, on the work floor and outside on the site. Materials with a high insulation value have been used and wall openings and roof junctions are airtight. In addition, the parking facilities that have been built make efficient use of the available land.
With the sale to Durfort Vastgoed, the last lot at Schiphol Logistics Park has been taken. Logistics companies can still acquire building land at the nearby Schiphol Trade Park.
Update 21 May 2019: Durfort Vastgoed has sold the distribution centre to a foreign investment company.
