Paris, November 30th, 2022 – The Intermarché chain has signed a lease with GLP for a floor area of approximately 63,000 SQM (i.e. two thirds of the platform) in the XXL logistics development in Ablaincourt-Pressoir for which FACTOR’INDUSTRY REAL ESTATE (‘FIRE’) and STONEHEDGE have combined their complementary knowledge and common values in the Terre de Picardie region.
With this first lease, the logistics platform of more than 100,000 SQM – developed speculatively by FIRE and STONEHEDGE, independent companies specialising in the development, planning and investment of real estate with a high environmental and social value, for GLP, the leading global investment manager and business builder in logistics, digital infrastructure, renewable energy and related technologies – is already nearly 70% pre-leased.
«We are delighted that Intermarché has signed this agreement, which validates our decision to support FACTOR’INDUSTRY REAL ESTATE and STONEHEDGE as investors,« adds Philippe Graziani, Country Director France, GLP.
An XXL eco-responsible project that reimagines the traditional vision of buildings dedicated to logistics
Developed with the Franc Architectures group, this real estate complex offers a contemporary, uncluttered design and integrates high quality workspaces to provide the best possible comfort for future users. The building will benefit from cutting-edge features such as full LED lighting technology, BREEAM very good certification, and the installation of an 8 MWp photovoltaic plant, which will be the largest rooftop installation in France and will provide green electricity to thousands of homes.
A first lease that illustrates a shared responsible ethical code
This new XXL platform, which today represents one of the major logistics sites in France, illustrates the expertise and ongoing commitment of FIRE, STONEHEDGE and GLP to sustainable development.
Julien Mongoin, co-founder of FIRE, commented: «This project attracted Intermarché because of its strategic location in the heart of the Hauts de France region and its high architectural, landscape and environmental quality. In addition to the expertise and know-how of FIRE and STONEHEDGE, it was our shared ethical code focused on a more sustainable energy future which enabled us to design this large-scale project, as well as the constant attention paid to the comfort and safety of the building’s future occupants.”
The parties were advised in the lease by Arthur Loyd Logistique. FIRE, STONEHEDGE and GLP were advised by DLA and ARCHERS.
This logistics platform will be delivered in the first half of 2023. Several advanced negotiations are already underway regarding the lease of the remaining space, approximately 38,000 SQM.
