GLP, a leading investor and developer of logistics warehouses and distribution parks, today announces the successful lease of G-Park Villaverde warehouse in Madrid to a US e-commerce company.
On a 70,000 SQM plot of land, GLP will develop a state-of-the-art building totaling approximately 17,000 SQM. Given its proximity to the city of Madrid, G-Park Villaverde is ideally located for last-mile distribution. In addition, it is well-connected to the M-40, without passing through residential areas. It offers the possibility of a 100% sustainable distribution service to the city, using electric vehicles and bicycles (10 minutes by delivery lorry, 40 minutes by conventional bicycle and 20 minutes by electric bicycle from the warehouse to the center of Madrid).
The logistics warehouse will generate a high number of jobs, which will benefit the surrounding urban centers. In addition, the connections with local metro services, buses and Madrid trains will facilitate easy access for staff using public transport to reach G-Park Villaverde.
The logistics center has state-of-the-art sustainability features. The logistics platform is BREEAM Very Good certified, reflecting GLP’s commitment to developing sustainable spaces across its European portfolio. Among the many sustainability and wellness features are an energy production and management system and increased insulation.
In addition, this project will have measures compatible with wellness certifications for employee wellbeing. These include improved lighting and acoustics, water fountains and pleasant recreational environments. All these measures will help to attract employees and improve employee productivity.
Oscar Heras, Country Director of GLP Spain, says: “We are pleased to welcome a new customer to G-Park Villaverde. This logistics project combines cutting-edge design with the most innovative quality and sustainability standards. Furthermore, our ESG commitment reflects our desire to respect the wellbeing of the surrounding communities, ensuring that our presence brings benefits.”
