Prologis is developing a tailor-made sustainable logistics facility with 19,391 square meters of high-quality warehouse and office space on an old industrial site in the Lichtenberg district of northeast Berlin. A pharmaceutical wholesaler signed a 10-year lease for two units, a total of 13,674 square meters. The remaining 5,717 square meters are still available.

Prologis acquired the brownfield site in 2021. Demolition of the old buildings began in January and will be completed soon. Recently, Prologis received the building permit and plans to complete the new building in early 2025. “The realisation of the project in Berlin Lichtenberg is an important milestone for our growth in Germany,” says Björn Thiemann, senior vice president, regional head Northern Europe at Prologis. “The city has great potential for the logistics industry in Europe. Our strategic focus on markets as Berlin is supported by a historically low supply of modern, sustainable buildings.”

Prologis Park Berlin DC2 will be heated without fossil fuels, in line with Prologis’ strategy to develop gas-independent real estate (all-electric buildings). Future users will obtain electricity from a 1.2-megawatt peak photovoltaic system on the roof. Prologis aims to attain DGNB Platinum certification for the building. The facility will also include an elevated parking deck with 140 parking spaces, all of which can be equipped with charging stations for electric vehicles. The ramp to the parking deck is accessible for vans, and the dock ramps for trucks and vans will be under the parking deck.

“We are delighted to further strengthen our presence in the Berlin market with our second urban development project, including an innovative parking deck concept, and support our client in their activities in the capital,” says Vincent Lampe, manager, capital deployment at Prologis. “The modern and innovative brownfield development is in line with our sustainability strategy and will minimize the environmental impact of operations.”

The client will benefit from the site’s location near the A10 motorway and the B1 and B2 federal highways. In accordance with Prologis’ Parklife™ concept, which enriches a logistics park beyond storage space, there will be green space around the building, a pingpong table, a pavilion for breaks, and a maintenance and repair station for bicycles. Prologis will plant approximately 45 trees on the property and green the noise barrier facing the neighboring housing estate.
