Spanish supermarket chain, Eroski, will open a new logistics platform in 2021 for the storage of perishable products in Vitoria, the capital of the Basque Region. The warehouse will be developed within the industrial estate of Júndiz on Lermandabide Avenue.
The plot has a total area of almost 45,000m2, a large part of which is currently occupied by the city’s former slaughterhouse building. The building has been abandoned since the cessation of the slaughterhouse’s activity years ago and Proequity has advised Krean Development in the re positioning and sale of the project to an institutional investor.
The 18,000m2 warehouse will be «designed with a high level of technical specifications to ensure an uninterrupted cold chain and high energy efficiency,» will be delivered in the second quarter of 2021, according to Proequity. The new logistics centre will receive LEED Gold certification and Eroski explains that the center «will be strategic for their distribution in the province of Gipuzkoa».
Part of the €13 billion Mondragon Corporation, the developer, Krean Industrial Development, has over 30 years of experience in the engineering and architecture sector and was formerly known as LKS Ingenería.
