Revitalization to Counter a Scarcity of Suitable Land
Logistics is indispensable when it comes to supplying people with their daily necessities, and logistics in close proximity to consumers helps avoid unnecessary traffic and ensure the flow of goods. As the logistics sector grows, the demand for quality logistics facilities increases, but in some regions—such as Hamburg, Rhine-Ruhr, Rhine-Main and Munich—suitable land is limited, especially when businesses in the e-commerce sector require facilities in excess of 20,000 square meters.
Revitalizing brownfields is often the only way to build modern logistics facilities in the right locations. At the same time, using industrial wasteland is a sustainable solution that conserves resources. Consequently, in the era of booming e-commerce and the related demand for logistics facilities, we are focused on revitalizing former industrial sites. In addition, we evaluate whether we can convert existing properties and whether they meet our requirements for the logistics buildings of the future after the conversion measures. In order to identify suitable brownfields and existing properties with potential, we look at locations from a completely different perspective. We follow our vision of sustainability not only in Germany, but worldwide with our expertise and local knowledge about brownfield development.
