SEGRO is letting 8,650 square meters of commercial space to five companies in Cologne
SEGRO has let 8,650 square meters of commercial space to five companies in its SEGRO CityPark Cologne in the Ehrenfeld district of the Bickendorf district. Of this, 800 square meters are allocated to Ferchau GmbH, which is now settling in the area.
The existing tenants EmTransit GmbH – known under the e-scooter operator brand Dott – and easyfulfillment have expanded their rental space by 2,300 square meters and 1,000 square meters respectively. The company MEDIAFIX GmbH, which specializes in the digitization of analogue media, also leased 3,150 square meters on a long-term basis. The majority of the 150 employees will work at the new location in Cologne. In addition, 1,400 square meters were rented to an online retailer, who was brokered the space by CBRE.
"We are experiencing unrelenting demand for our modern commercial space from companies from a wide variety of sectors and are therefore very pleased that the area is being further enlivened by the variety of new tenants," says Simon Czerwinski, Associate Director Development Light Industrial at SEGRO.
The SEGRO CityPark Cologne is located on Vitalisstraße in the Bickendorf district of Cologne on the former AkzoNobel factory site. The “technology park” station covers around 43,000 square meters. The site offers connections to the S-Bahn and regional train network. In addition, the district is served by four subway lines, so that the location can be easily reached by public transport. In addition, the district with the A 1 and A 57 is optimally connected to the motorway network. The railway siding on the site of SEGRO CityPark Cologne also offers the potential to shift freight traffic from road to rail. Through the development of further commercial areas, 55,000 square meters of floor space will be available in the future. The area is characterized by its sustainability. It has buildings with green roofs, intelligent systems for determining energy savings, and beehives, insect hotels and nesting boxes to promote biodiversity. In addition, a photovoltaic system is currently being planned and charging stations for electric vehicles are to be put into operation in a few months. In addition, the quality of stay is increased by benches on the outside areas.
The users of the area already include Deutsche Post, Delicato Foodservice, Alvero Büromöbelvermietung, the online retailer Kapten & Son, deintorte.de, the company Shirtee, which specializes in digital printing, and the 0221 Mediagroup.
