TwentyTwo Real Estate has acquired an 80,000m2 logistics hub in Bourges, in the town of La Chapelle Saint Ursin and the village of Morthomiers (Centre-Val de Loire region) from the BEG Group. GreenBerry is centrally located in France, close to several motorways and a railway hub. The site will also be connected to the Bourges conurbation by public transport.
With construction starting in September 2022 and delivery scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2023, the complex offered for rent consists of back-to-back cells, including four 1,500m² cells for flammable hazardous products and five 12,000m² cells.
The site, which has BREEAM Very Good certification, will meet the latest requirements in terms of sustainable development, including the commitments of the Afilog Charter. Its roof will be used to develop a photovoltaic power plant generating an annual production of approximately 9,000 MWh, equivalent to the annual energy consumption of 4,500 people.
“We are very pleased with this transaction, which is in line with our strategy of investing in the logistics segment, which still has good fundamentals. In a context of increasing scarcity of supply, amplified on large platforms, this site will offer users a next-generation, rapidly available hub, serving Paris in 2.5 hours, Lyon in 3 hours and 90% of France in 6 hours.
The central location, the proximity of the Bourges employment area and the very good technical and environmental specifications of GreenBerry make this platform a site with many advantages for future users”, says Nicolas Lutgé, Commercial Real Estate Director of TwentyTwo Real Estate.
“ATIC GROUP and the BEG Group were able to mobilise their talents to design this project in the heart of the Bourges conurbation (107,000 inhabitants), in an established business park located right next to the motorway. The gamble paid off thanks to our expertise in logistic real estate. We are pleased with this value creation, which encourages us to position ourselves in operations that contribute to the development of our investor and user clients”, says Grégory CROIXMARIE, Managing Director of ATIC GROUP, and Deputy Managing Director of BEG INGENIERIE.
