Logicenters is currently strengthening its presence, preparing for further expansion in Finland. This time through the acquisition of land at Ilvesvuorenkatu 8 in Ilvesvuori, Nurmijärvi. The site totals 51,000 m2 and Logicenters plans to develop a modern logistics facility on 29,000 m2 of it. The logistics facility is being built on speculation and will be designed to accommodate three tenants at a time. The future facility will have a strong focus on sustainability, with both geothermal energy and solar panel options being available. A first property is scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.
“We are delighted to be continuing our development in the Finnish region. Our presence in Nurmijärvi is an important step in further strengthening Logicenters’ position as a leading logistics player in the Nordic region. The area is also an important strategic location due to its geographical position and good transport links. The newly acquired land gives us the opportunity to meet the needs of our tenants and provide them with a high-quality modern logistics facility. This is an investment that we look forward to developing,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
Nurmijärvi is part of the capital region of Finland, strategically located close to both the Helsinki-Vantaa international airport and the E12 European motorway. The area is already home to companies such as DB Schenker and the location offers good transport links to both Helsinki and Tampere.
At almost the same time, Logicenters is announcing a new top recruitment. Kristoffer Sandberg will take on the role as Head of Transactions and Business Development for Logicenters in Sweden. Kristoffer has extensive experience within business development in the real estate and logistics industry and most recently held the position of Head of Capital Markets at Cushman & Wakefield.
