Radius Group, the leading warehouse and real estate developer, and Auchan Retail Russia, one of the largest goods retailer announce the lease deal of 53, 000 sq.m. of warehouse space in Class A South Gate Industrial Park that is located in the south of Moscow close to Domodedovo.
Auchan Retail Russia decided to expand its presence at A Class South Gate Industrial Park. The French retailer leased three warehouse buildings at once. The total area of leased space is more than 53, 000 sq.m. By tenant’s request, the racking equipment was installed in the leased space to store the line of consumer goods.
We recall that nowadays adius Group has started the construction of Auchan National Distribution Center which will be located in front of South Gate Industrial Park. The first phase of the distribution center will be commissioned this year and will be more than 100, 000 sq.m. The construction is executed using 5D BIM Radius InSite innovative platform.
“One of the key benefits of the warehouse spaces for the retailer was their proximity to Auchan distribution center under construction, as well as warehouse space technical and utility features that correspond to global energy efficiency standards such as BREEAM, LEED and GRESB” comments Zakhar Valkov, Radius Group COO. I am sure that this solution allows our partner to additionally reduce the goods supply chain in its stores in the Moscow Region and Central Federal District”.
The retailer’s interest in South Gate Industrial Park primarily stems from a strategic location of the facility, which is at the intersection of such federal highways as A-107, M-4 (Don) and TSKAD and with close proximity to the key airport of the capital – Domodedovo airport, and just 20 minutes from one of the largest market places in the country - Moscow. In addition, tenants are attracted to the facility because of the high quality of warehouse space and utility infrastructure. The own management company operates South Gate Industrial Park. To date, in addition to Auchan, South Gate Industrial Park has other large global and Russian retailers such as Alibaba, Leroy Merlin, Decathlon, Next, Gloria Jeans, 36.6, Kimberly Clark and etc.
