ROOSENDAAL and LONDON

JLL and CBRE appointed to lease Campus A58, the largest warehouse development in the Netherlands


  • 21-hectare development site is located in Roosendaal, one of Europe's leading logistics hotspots
  • Logistics Capital Partners and Dietz AG will develop the site for  XXL warehouses 

JLL and CBRE have been jointly appointed to lease Campus A58, a unique XXL warehouse development in Roosendaal, the Netherlands, one of Europe's leading logistics hotspots.

A rarity in the market and the only project of its size ready to start development in the Netherlands within the next 18 months, Campus A58 is capable of accommodating a wide range of built-to-suit logistics facilities. It offers a unique opportunity for internationally focused companies to gain a strategic foothold in the heart of Europe, and is ideal for newcomers to the European market who want quick delivery of a large-scale, high-capacity, flexible logistics solution in Europe's most strategically important logistics location. It also provides a very attractive alternative logistics location for companies that have existing European operations, especially in the neighbouring countries of Belgium, France and Germany, which have higher labour costs.

Thijs van de Meulengraaf, Advisor Industrial & Logistics Agency JLL Netherlands, said: "Land plots of this size are exceedingly scarce throughout Europe, especially in areas such as Roosendaal. The site is just 50 kilometres from Europe's two largest ports in Rotterdam and Antwerp, is well-connected to mainland Europe by road and has a local pool of highly skilled, lower-cost labour. The plot size in combination with zoning plan, labour availability and location offers and ideal solution for an e-commerce operation.

"Campus A58 offers an excellent opportunity for the prospective occupier to help shape the development of a bespoke logistics facility that will meet their business objectives and stand the test of time as technology and workplace experience become increasingly important in the logistics and industrial sector."

Dr Wolfgang Dietz, Chairman of Dietz AG, added: "Campus A58 marks our second project outside Germany, and we specifically chose to involve ourselves with this development because of its overall quality, unique scale benefits and unrivalled location.

"While we remain committed to the German real estate market, we view this as a chance to strategically expand into other European markets while retaining access to our core market and widening our offer to potential German expanding occupiers. Viewing this from a wider perspective, we feel that Campus A58 presents a unique opportunity for a multinational company at the right stage of growth to establish a foothold in a strategically important location."

Kristof Verstraeten, Managing Director, Logistics Capital Partners, said: "As a company with a pan-European scope and outlook, we were immediately drawn to the Campus A58 project because of the possibilities it offers. Campus A58 provides a truly unique opportunity for a prospective occupier to be involved in the decision-making process, from design to construction to operation, enabling the creation of a customised, world-class logistics facility in the heart of what is arguably one of the world's best logistics locations."

Campus A58 will be jointly developed by Logistics Capital Partners, a developer and asset manager specialising in logistics real estate across Europe, and Dietz AG, a leading German real estate group. It will be ready for construction in January 2017, with expected occupancy later in the year.

  • Campus A58 offers the possibility of a single warehouse of up to 120,000 square metres, multiple large-scale buildings or other customisable configurations.
  • The site's expansive footprint also allows for parking for up to 790 cars and 119 lorries depending on the selected layout, as well as associated infrastructure.
  • Current zoning allows for a building height of up to 20 metres, offering a wide variety of solutions on customer requirements.
  • Strategically located near the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp and at the crossroads of two major motorways that connect to the rest of mainland Europe, Campus A58 offers easy access to markets across the continent and around the globe.
  • In the surrounding 500-kilometre radius alone, there are 300 million consumers located in Benelux, France and Germany.
  • A recently completed bypass road gives truck traffic direct access to Campus A58 from the nearby A17 motorway and the A58 motorway, the main east–west transport axis across The Netherlands.
  • Already home to a substantial logistics cluster comprising four major industrial parks, Roosendaal is well equipped to provide related structural and human resources support to Campus A58.
  • Logistics labour costs in the Netherlands are relatively low compared to neighbouring countries.
  • As of June 2015, there were more than 20,000 people with capacity to work living both in Roosendaal and within a 30-minute drive from Campus A58. This is in addition to the potential labour force of 25,000 people who live within commuting distance of Campus A58 in the western region of North Brabant province. They are linked via convenient public transport options, including intercity train service to Roosendaal city centre and three connecting public bus routes to Campus A58.
