GROUND IS BROKEN AT ARLANDASTAD FOR BOCKASJÖ’S SEK 500 MILLION INVESTMENT IN TWO LOGISTICS PROPERTIES

Ground has now been broken for the two logistics properties totaling 60,000 m² which Bockasjö AB will build in Arlandastad. The investment amounts to SEK 500 million, which confirms the area’s continued expansion.

Bockasjö AB specializes in building, owning and managing large logistics properties. The company has signed a long-term lease for the 31,000 m² property with Schenker Logistics AB, which is already established in the area.

Negotiations are underway with tenants regarding the other property of 30,000 m², which is planned to be built simultaneously. The buildings are expected to be move-in ready in autumn 2013.

The buildings will be environmentally certified according to Green Building, which means energy consumption will be 25% lower than the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning’s building regulations (BBR). The facilities will be built to reduce consumption of electricity and heat.

The properties will be owned by Bockasjö AB.

“We’re happy about Schenker Logistics AB’s expansion and need for more space. It’s inspiring to get to work with such a professional player,” says Joakim Hedin, CEO of Bockasjö AB. “Interest in setting up operations in the area is high; therefore, we’re choosing to build both of the properties at once and thus achieve economies of scale.” Negotiations are underway with several potential tenants.

“Stockholm is a very interesting logistics area with major potential and many business opportunities,” says Mats Olsson, CEO of Schenker Logistics AB. “The property will have a strategic location on the E4 and near Arlanda Airport, which suits us and our customers brilliantly,” adds Mats Olsson. “Bockasjö is doing an incredibly good job and our collaboration is exemplary; we therefore look forward to expanding our partnership.
