LIP Invest, leading provider of special real estate funds in the asset class of logistics real estate in Germany, announces the completion of the new logistics building in Dannstadt, Riedstraße 21. Together with the project developer Panattoni, the general contractor Goldbeck Südwest and in the presence of the mayor of Dannstadt-Schauernheim the logistics centre was handed over to the tenant IFCO after a construction phase of less than twelve months.
The 23,300 square metre distribution centre with a hall height of 9 meters and a floor load capacity of 5 tons has high potential for third-party use. During construction, great value was set on a design that is close to nature as well on the well-being of the employees on site: A wildflower meadow, a natural pond with a pavilion and seating were created for a park-like design of the outdoor facilities. Insect hotels as well as several nesting boxes promote the biodiversity of the site.
LIP's sister company AvanLog Solar is also installing a photovoltaic system on half of the roof area, while the remaining roof area is taken up by a green roof. Green roofs can help to bind CO2 and thus make a positive contribution to climate change. Other environmental measures include the infiltrative eco-paving of the parking spaces, e-charging columns, resource-saving heat pumps and underfloor heating in the office areas, so that the property has a DGNB Gold certification.
With the new building, tenant IFCO Systems GmbH moves into its sixth location in Germany. The IFCO Group is a leading provider of reusable containers, supplying worldwide about 18,000 food producers and more than 500 retailers in the fruit, vegetable, meat, fish and baked goods sectors. With the new distribution centre in Dannstadt, the company intends to strengthen its activities in the Rhine-Neckar region.
