Goodman continues its e-commerce led expansion in North Germany


Prime 1.7 hectare site acquired in the heart of the Port of Hamburg will provide customers with access to over five million consumers
– The 11,300 sqm climate-neutral logistics and distribution facility will be ready for occupation by mid-2021

Goodman has continued its expansion in North Germany with the acquisition of a brownfield site to house a sustainable logistics centre. The facility will incorporate 700 sqm office space and 1,900 sqm of mezzanine and covered storage areas outside. The Port of Hamburg is one of the three busiest ports in Europe and is a dynamic business centre. Combined with the facility’s flexibility, the project opens up opportunities for e-commerce or third-party logistics customers in the sought after Port of Hamburg location.

Due for completion in the middle of 2021, the facility will be five minutes from the container terminals and motorway, 15 minutes from the city centre of Hamburg and 25 minutes from the airport. The site will also have the convenience of a bus service connecting the Airbus factory, Hausbruch Business Park and the central bus station in Altona.

Continuing its expansion in North Germany, Goodman has previously developed and leased more than 40,000 sqm of space in the area to Airbus and Diehl.

Markus Meyer, Head of Northern Germany at Goodman, says: “This site demonstrates Goodman’s technical expertise in transforming brownfield sites into modern spaces, placing our customers closer to their customers and improving their supply chain efficiency and last mile delivery.”

The site was a former port basin that was subject to landfill operations between 2013 and 2015.

In discussing Goodman’s approach to brownfield developments, Markus Meyer said: “While these projects can be challenging, they lead to environmentally friendly and visually attractive sites that often benefit the broader community.”

The property demonstrates Goodman’s focused commitment to sustainability. As well as having roof-top solar and smart metering, the building will have energy-efficient lighting and charging points for electric vehicles. The aim is to achieve DGNB Gold certification. Once completed, the building will be operated in a CO2-neutral manner.
