Castellum held a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a new 26,000m2 logistics facility at the Logistics Park beside the Port of Gothenburg. The facility marks the first stage in Castellum’s investment in the area. Anna Nord at Port of Gothenburg, Cecilia Fasth at Castellum and Anders Bothén at Logstics Contractor opened the construction. It was announced in March that Castellum had entered into an agreement with Logistics Contractor regarding the construction of the facility. It is due to be completed during the first quarter of 2018 and Castellum is building the facility speculatively with no tenant lined up. “This is a prime location beside the largest port in Scandinavia and we are confident about building without having a tenant lined up. We are constructing an adaptable, ultramodern logistics facility that can be divided into smaller units, ranging from 6,000 square metres upwards. Our offer is flexible and there’s the opportunity to adapt the space based on the needs of each tenant,” said Stefan Vilhelmsson, Letting Manager at Castellum. The facility will be environmentally certified and prepared for the fitting of solar panels on the roof. It marks the first phase in the Castellum investment at the Logistics Park. Of the 127,000m2 of land, around 60,000 is planned to used for construction. The Logistics Park is just 10 minutes from the quayside, immediately beside the Port of Gothenburg. The park has one million square metres of land, of which around half can be transformed into warehousing space. Apart from Gothenburg Port Authority – which owns the largest parcel of land – Bockasjö, Eklandia, NCC and Prologis are also developing properties in the park.
