Goodman Group, a global leading owner, developer and manager of logistics real estate, strengthens its partnership with Amazon with the take-up of 137,000 sqm of space across two logistics properties in the Hauts-de-France region. Goodman has already provided Amazon with over one million sqm of logistics space across Europe since 2006. As part of this new project, Goodman will develop a 107,000 sqm logistics centre in Amiens and lease a 30,000 sqm existing property in Lauwin-Planque.
The new logistics centre in Amiens, located between Lille and Paris, will provide 107,000 sqm of storage and office space and will feature LED lighting throughout. Construction work commences in early October and Goodman will seek a BREEAM Very Good certification upon completion in September 2017.
“Goodman has proven to be a strong and reliable real estate partner—being creative and proactive in meeting all our requirements—so Amazon can strengthen its logistics network in France and continue to enhance its services to customers,” explained Nicholas Deeks, Amazon EU Real Estate Director.
“Amazon is one of our largest customers globally and we are proud to continue a collaboration that has lasted for more than ten years,” said Philippe Arfi, Goodman Country Director for France. “This announcement is another milestone in our partnership and reaffirms our position as the leading provider of logistics real estate for the ecommerce sector.”
Amazon extends leases for two properties
Earlier this year, Amazon renewed its lease agreements for logistics centres in Saran and Montélimar in France, which together represent 106,000 sqm. Both properties are owned by Goodman’s flagship European investment vehicle, Goodman European Partnership (GEP), and benefit from Goodman's in house property and asset management services.
“The agreements on the two lease extensions underscore the quality, flexibility and long-term value of the property solutions and services we provide our customers, even in rapidly evolving sectors such as ecommerce,” Arfi added.
