- The first stone ceremony of G-Park Masquefa has brought together the Mayor of Masquefa, Xavier Boquet, and the Director of Territorial Services of Business and Labor of Central Catalonia, Maria Teresa Clotet.
Barcelona, 29 March 2023 – GLP, the leading global business builder, owner, developer and operator of logistics real estate, data centers, renewable energy and related technologies, announces its fourth investment in Catalonia, situated within the region of L’Anoia in Barcelona. The 29,000 SQM development, G-Park Masquefa, was built by GSE España, a construction company specialising in the development of logistics projects.
Built on a 55,452 SQM plot of land, G-Park Masquefa will be the first GLP project in Spain to shift from its traditional blue colour scheme to green. Inspired by biophilic architecture, the shift from blue to green tones ensures that the project is integrated into the natural environment, featuring an avant-garde design complemented by the surrounding vineyards.
Located just over half an hour from El Prat Airport and 40 kilometres from the Catalan capital, the logistics platform is ideal for local and national distribution from Barcelona. With an unbeatable location in the L’Anoia region, the project has 37 loading bays and 12.2 metres of storage height that will provide services to the 2.9 million people within a 45-minute radius and generate employment, wealth and opportunities for local communities.
With an emphasis on sustainability and BREEAM Excellent certification, the park demonstrates GLP’s commitment to taking care for the community and the surrounding environment to the next level. It will have a photovoltaic panel installation along with other clean energy measures such as bicycle and electric vehicle chargers.
Óscar Heras, Director of GLP Spain, remarked: “G-Park Masquefa will become a benchmark for the promotion of sustainable logistics, demonstrating that warehouses are capable of placing the environment and the community at the centre of value creation for customers. It is a pleasure to be working with GSE on this exciting project and expanding our footprint in Catalonia.”
Xavier Boquete, Mayor of Masquefa, commented: “This project is the continuity of a commitment that we started many years ago to industrialize the municipality of Masquefa, create industrial land and generate employment, wealth and economic activity. The arrival of GLP will allow us to generate new qualified jobs in the logistics sector to benefit the residents of Masquefa. It is a very unique project that will create value for Masquefa.”
Maria Teresa Clotet, Director of Territorial Services of Business and Labor of Central Catalonia, said: “This is a forward-looking project. G-Park Masquefa brings together social and environmental values in a single project. Projects like this boost the economic activity of the Anoia region.”
Ramón Lázaro, Commercial Director of GSE, commented: “We are pleased to be working with GLP, a long-standing customer for us in Spain and the rest of Europe. We will contribute to the development of G-Park Masquefa with an excellent project that will adhere to GLP’s ambitious efficiency and sustainability standards – values which we fully share.”
The transaction has been advised by CBRE, which has been entrusted with the marketing of the entire logistics park.
