Prologis to Build 34,000 Square Meter Warehouse for HEMA in Nieuwegein

21 February 2019

Prologis is going to build a build-to-suit distribution center of 34,000 square meters for HEMA. The premises will be located at business park Het Klooster, in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands. Construction will commence in the first quarter of 2019 and will be completed in mid-March 2020.

High standards The distribution center will be conveniently situated on the A27 and it will be developed to meet high standards, including a free height of 12.2 meters and LED lighting. The premises will also comply with the BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard for sustainability performance. Solar panels will be installed on the building.

Purchase of lot To build the center, Prologis has purchased a 5.7-hectare lot from Nieuwegein council. The contract was signed by Alderman for Economic Affairs, Ellie Eggengoor: “We are delighted that once again we can add an enterprise to Het Klooster. All the big lots have now been sold. This confirms the prominent role Nieuwegein plays as the logistics hotspot of the Netherlands.”

Expanding portfolio Prologis owns several buildings at Prologis Park Nieuwegein. Sander Breugelmans, country manager Prologis Benelux explains: “This development expands our portfolio in the Utrecht region, which is very important for national distribution and e-commerce, to around 137,000 square meters. It has been made possible by the intensive and constructive collaboration with our partners HEMA and the Nieuwegein council.”

Bas van der Kwaak, Manager Real Estate HEMA: “HEMA and Prologis are no strangers to one another. We are bursting with ambition to grow at this central location in the country. Prologis can lend us the perfect support in this ambition, by providing flexibility in our logistics growth. So we are making grateful use of that support.”

Prologis was advised in this transaction by Savills.
