BEOS Logistics, member of Swiss Life Asset Managers, has acquired a large commercial site in Polch, west of Koblenz. It comprises a 10 200 square metre office building and a 18 500 square metre warehouse with development space for the immediate construction of another 20 000 square metre logistics facility.
BEOS Logistics has acquired another large plot of land – this is already the third deal since the first acquisi-tion in September 2021. In contrast to the first two acquisitions, the newly acquired 100 000 square metre site in Polch, west of Koblenz, not only offers 20 000 square metres of logistics development space, but also includes existing buildings. The seller of the property is LZP Logistikzentrum Polch GmbH & Co. KG. It has been agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
"Thanks to the financial strength of Swiss Life Asset Managers, this attractive purchase represents the sec-ond property suitable for speculative development. This transaction gives us access to an area that is ex-tremely attractive for logistics use due to its location between the two metropolitan areas Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Main," says Ingo Steves, managing partner of BEOS Logistics. Due to its proximity to these two re-gions, the property is ideally suited for logistics service providers from the parcel and general cargo sectors as well as retail. The immediate location directly on the A48 guarantees a good connection. In addition, the Rhine port Koblenz is the regional logistical hotspot. Together with the Rhine port Andernach, Koblenz offers mul-timodal transport options by water, rail and road.
Alexander Schmid, Head of Development BEOS Logis-tics: "Construction of the new logistics property, for which the building right has already been issued, is expected to start in the spring of 2022. We are already conducting intensive letting negotiations for the rent-al of 100% of the new space, which stands out through its flexibility and sustainable orientation. That is the basis on which we are working towards BREEAM Ex-cellent certification."
Only recently, BEOS Logistics announced the first two acquisitions in its still very young corporate history. In the Rhine-Lippe port of DeltaPort on the lower Rhine in Wesel near Duisburg, an 85 000 square metre logistics property is to be built on a 165 000 square metre plot for an international logistics service provid-er; a 50 000 square metre building will be built on a 100 000 metre site near Düsseldorf and made available to let.
