GLP has announced the lease of G-Park Villaverde warehouse in Madrid to a US e-commerce company.
On a 70,000 sq m plot of land, GLP will develop a state-of-the-art building totalling approximately 17,000 sq m. Given its proximity to the city of Madrid, G-Park Villaverde is said to be ideally located for last-mile distribution. In addition, it is well-connected to the M-40, without passing through residential areas. GLP claims it offers the possibility of a 100.0% 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 centre of Madrid).
GLP states the logistics centre has state-of-the-art sustainability features. The logistics platform is BREEAM Very Good certified, which the company says reflects its 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, it is said that this project will have measures compatible with wellness certifications for employee wellbeing. These include improved lighting and acoustics, water fountains and pleasant recreational environments. The measures aim to help to attract employees and improve employee productivity.
