Montea and Durfort Vastgoed have started work on the construction of a logistics centre in the West-Noordzijde area of Schiphol Logistics Park, on a lot measuring nearly 1.5 hectares. Construction company Aan de Stegge expects to complete this commercial property for investor Montea in April 2018.
The logistics centre will comprise approximately 4,500m² of storage space and two office units totalling 900m². The first tenancy agreement has been signed by Thomsen Select, a company specialising in air freight groupage and transport. The company will be relocating from its current premises in De Hoek/Hoofddorp. Thomsen Select’s new premises can accommodate 25 staff members and 25 lorries. Thomson Select is to rent half the building for a fixed period of 10 years. The other half of the building, as well as a separate, strategically located lorry park of approximately 3,000m² (32,300ft²), will be offered to let.
Industrial Real Estate Partners advised Durfort in realising the development.
“This highly constructive and enjoyable collaboration with SADC, in combination with the unique location of Schiphol Logistics Park in relation to Schiphol Airport, the A4 motorway and the N201 provincial road, have laid the basis for the realisation of this project. I expect that in its new premises, Thomsen Select will be able to successfully continue and expand its business activities.” – Cees Smit, director of Durfort Vastgoed
“Thanks to our years of experience in developments at airports, we can effectively anticipate the needs and demands of the forwarder and logistics specialist.” – Hylcke Okkinga, director of Montea
