GSE Italy hands over a temperature-controlled warehouse to Prologis in Milan
Located on a 22,308 m2 site on Via Dione Cassio in Milan, the new warehouse has a total surface area of 13,186 m2. The project is a prime example of local logistics for major retailers, designed to meet the requirements of last-mile deliveries in an efficient and sustainable way.
The building includes 1,620 m² of office space for administration and business management and a 10,920 m² multi-temperature warehouse with seven temperature-controlled units (between 0°C and 4°C) for food preparation and the packaging of fresh and very fresh products, as well as a unit at -18°C for the storage of frozen food products.
The entire building is LEED Silver-certified and stands out by its particularly strong focus on sustainability. For example, the building has a green roof to limit the urban heat island (UHI) effect and increase thermal inertia, as well as a @400 kWp photovoltaic facility to meet the building’s high energy consumption.
The construction of this warehouse is an example of virtuous brownfield operations (decontamination and reconversion of industrial wasteland) that enable the development of new real estate projects without using up new land.
