Düsseldorf (October 26, 2017) – Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, has signed two lease agreements for a total of around 26,400 square meters of existing space in Hanover, Germany. Electrical retail group “expert” will start operations in a facility measuring 16,500 square meters at Prologis Park Hanover-Langenhagen on January 1, 2018. A food retailer has been using a logistics facility measuring 9,900 square meters on the site since September 1, 2017.
“The logistics park in Hanover continues to be fully let thanks to these two signed agreements,” said Philipp Feige, vice president, market officer Germany at Prologis. “The food retailer needed the space at short notice, and the previous tenant was able to release the use of the facility early. This flexibility has been a great help to our new customer.” Prologis will also take care of property management for both companies.
