Verdion has started the speculative development of a new logistics asset in Roosendaal in the Southern Netherlands.

From Q4 2022, the 8,8000 sq m Grade A warehouse on the Borchwerf I industrial estate will be available to lease, offering 7,880 sqm of high-quality warehousing plus mezzanine and offices on a 6-ha site.

Designed with logistics sector occupiers in mind, it includes a range of features to enable smooth operations and will meet high standards of energy efficiency throughout, with Verdion targeting BREEAM Very Good sustainability rating on completion and remaining in place as long-term manager for the building.

Located close to the A17 motorway, Borchwerf I offers rapid connections to Bergen op Zoom and Moerdijk, with Breda, Tilburg, Antwerp and Rotterdam all within easy reach. Occupiers would be joining the wide range of businesses already located in the area, including Imperial, Raben, Aldi, Cloetta, DHL, DSV, Jan de Rijk, Lidl, Loendersloot, OHL and Polynorm.

Verdion acquired the site for €17 million in an off-market deal in 2020 – its first asset in the Netherlands.  The site already includes facilities for Imperial Group and Raben – formerly Bas Warehousing – for hazardous goods storage.

Florian Stöbe, Head of Investment – Germany and Benelux, at Verdion, said: “This is a very well-located logistics building with excellent transport links, offering high quality space close a number of major urban centres and ports. Starting development is a further step forward in our investment programme focused on delivering last mile opportunities in Northern Europe and we are expecting significant demand from a range of businesses moving into the region or expanding their current operations.”

De Lobel & Partners is the leasing agent.
