Castellum invests in attractive logistics area just outside Stockholm
Castellum has begun construction of a warehouse and logistics building in Brunna, part of the Kungsängen area, just outside Stockholm. The building constitutes the first element to reinforce large-scale logistics operations, and further support expansion of the Stockholm-West Logistics Area. As calculated, the investment amounts to SEKm 140, including costs of SEKm 41, for previous property acquisition and preliminary groundwork at the site.
Development is currently running hot in Stockholm region’s next mega-area for warehousing and logistics: Stockholm-West, in Brunna. Strategically situated near two major European highways – the E18 and the E4 – the building will be well-placed and conveniently accessible. Several established commercial enterprises and service companies – along with warehousing and logistics – are already established in the area. In order to meet market demand and increase quality in the real estate portfolio, Castellum will begin the first of several newly constructed warehouse and logistics premises in one of Stockholm’s strongest development areas.
Castellum’s logistics facilities comprise 8 800 sq.m, and are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2019. The facilities will be environmentally certified according to the Miljöbyggnad classification system, Silver level.
“Castellum continues to strengthen the quality of our real estate portfolio with a versatile and modern warehouse-and-logistics building in one of Stockholm’s most attractively situated and accessible areas. Added to that, vacancy rates in the vicinity are low, and we carry out the groundwork for continued expansion”, says Castellum CEO, Henrik Saxborn.
Demand for warehouse and logistics facilities is currently massive in the Stockholm area. Backed by solidly based market demand, Castellum has started a new construction, without specific customers, and well-armed with versatile adaptation solutions that can be applied as the project takes shape. With full leasing, the investment is assessed to generate revenues of approx. SEKm 11.
