VGP rents out both of its parks in Madrid and acquires new land
- In the last 5 years, the European logistics and industrial real estate company VGP has built 9 buildings with a total of 158,780 m² divided over the parks VGP Park San Fernando de Henares and VGP Park Fuenlabrada, and has rented them completely
- VGP advances with its expansion plan in the Spanish territory through the acquisition of 50,576 m² of land for the construction of a new park in Fuenlabrada
- The new acquisition strengthens VGP’s logistics and industrial business model, based on the construction and leasing of sustainable and energy-efficient business parks
VGP has fully leased its two parks in Madrid, VGP Park San Fernando de Henares and VGP Park Fuenlabrada, 5 years after the construction works began. The total leased area amounts to 158,780 m², on a total area of more than 300,000 m². VGP has also acquired 50,576 m² of land in El Bañuelo, in the municipality of Fuenlabrada, for the construction of a new park, which will be fully operational from the first half of 2024.
In the summer of 2017 construction works began at VGP Park San Fernando de Henares, the logistics and industrial park located in the strategic town of San Fernando de Henares, just 15 km northeast of Madrid. It has 117,035 m² of built surface (on a plot of 222,712 square meters) and 8 state-of-the-art buildings, certified with the BREEAM Very Good energy efficiency label.
Currently, VGP Park San Fernando de Henares houses the companies ThyssenKrupp, Rhenus, Noatum, Logwin Solutions, Huawei, DIGI, Paack, DSV and, recently, Picking Farma, which has plans to settle in the park from 2023. The facility for Picking Farma will be the largest logistics asset of the pharmaceutical logistics operator in Spain.
For its part, the logistics and industrial park VGP Park Fuenlabrada is located about 20 km southwest of the center of Madrid, in a strategically privileged location, at the intersection between the M-50 and the R-5. The park has 41,745 square meters of built surface suitable for industrial and logistics use, on an area of 80,223 m² of land. The building is energy certified with the BREEAM Very Good label. The companies Futurbaño and Logista Pharma operate in VGP Park Fuenlabrada.
New park VGP Park Fuenlabrada II
The new park, which will be named VGP Park Fuenlabrada II, will be VGP’s second park in Fuenlabrada, specifically in El Bañuelo, and the third that the company has in Madrid. With an area of 32,300 m² of leasable area – on a plot of land with a total area of 50,576 m² –, the new VGP site in Madrid will be sustainable and energy efficient and will be operational from the second half of 2023 (it is expected to be completed during the first half of 2024).
Among other measures, the new park will have photovoltaic panels and cutting-edge energy technologies, such as the generation of hot water in offices through green solar collection systems, LED technology lighting, air conditioning using highly efficient equipment and thermal modeling of the building, among many others. In addition, the building will be built using sustainable construction practices.
The new park will be suitable for logistics, e-commerce or industrial activities.
In the words of Joan Lacosta, Country Manager of VGP in Spain: “The acquisition of new land in Madrid strengthens VGP’s expansion plan in Spanish territory and our commitment to strategic locations. In addition, VGP has a benchmark industrial logistics model, based on the construction and leasing of sustainable and energy-efficient business parks. Now, more than ever, there is a need to have a strong focus on sustainability, a key driver for long-term business succes.“
