June 20, 2019 – On Friday June 14, SEGRO welcomed Mr. Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor of London in charge of economic and industrial revitalization projects and infrastructure for the City of London, and Mr. Jean-Philippe Dugoin-Clément, Vice-President of the Ile-de-France Region. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the challenges of urbanization, its impact on the economy and industry, and to share good practices.

In order to provide a successful illustration of the reconversion of industrial wasteland near Paris, the meeting was followed by a visit to Paris Air2 Logistique in Gennevilliers: developed by SEGRO, this double-storey site of 63,000 m2 is occupied by IKEA and Leroy Merlin.

“Because of our presence in both cities, we know that London and Paris face similar issues such as the scarcity of land and brownfield sites. It therefore seemed necessary to us to organize a visit to our new Paris Air2 Logistique site, which allows IKEA & Leroy Merlin to meet the growing demand of their customers in the Ile-de-France region, this model being able to be transposed to London. We hope that after this day, MM. Pipe and Dugoin-Clément will continue to share knowledge and best practices. » Andy Gulliford, Director of Operations SEGRO

In 2017, SEGRO launched its Keep London Working study on the importance of brownfields and land in London and their essential role in the growth of the economy and the population of the British capital. Conducted in close collaboration with the Greater London Authority, London First and the British Property Federation and SEGRO's clients, the study focuses on ways to maintain the exchange and flow of goods and services between businesses and consumers so that London retains its place as a metropolis.

“We were aware of the Keep London Working study carried out by SEGRO and noted the existence of many similarities between Paris and London. As in London, the challenges to be met in Paris concern urbanization, new uses resulting from technologies and the scarcity of land. We are delighted to have met Mr. Pipe and hope to be able to collaborate and share good practices for the future of our two cities. » Mr. Jean-Philippe Dugoin-Clement

London's population is expected to grow by 1.5 million over the next fifteen years. Added to this are the latest technologies, new uses and modes of consumption and the development of e-commerce, generating growing demand for land and sites to ensure deliveries to consumers.

“The review of the Mayor of London's strategic plan – The London Plan – was carried out by an independent firm over five months; the conclusions of the report and this visit to Paris are therefore an opportunity to analyze certain challenges facing London and to discuss the measures that the Mayor wishes to put in place. This meeting with Jean-Philippe and the visit to the platform carried out by SEGRO were extremely useful: we will be able to draw inspiration from them to optimize London land, create new commercial spaces, and develop our housing offer in London. »
