MOUNTPARK and GSE lay the foundation stone of a logistics platform in the south of Madrid
Mountpark, a leader in the construction of state-of-the-art logistics warehouses throughout Europe, laid the foundation stone of its new warehouse in Illescas with GSE, a global contactor and specialist of turnkey commercial real estate. Mountpark invested €12 million in the development of Illescas III, its future 12,430 m2 facility that will expand the Central Iberum platform in Illescas (Toledo), a prime distribution hub 35 kilometres from Madrid.
Participants at the event included Javier Úbeda, councillor of the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha in Toledo, Julián Martín Alcántara, councillor for the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Employment of Castilla-La Mancha, Luis Noé Sánchez, Director of Castilla-La Mancha promotion agency IPEX, José Manuel Tofiño, Mayor of Illescas, Nigel Rowe, Managing Director of Mountpark for Western Europe, and Ramón Lázaro, Sales Manager of GSE Spain.
Built on a 22,000 m2 plot, the Mountpark Illescas III logistics platform benefits from an excellent location, with quick routes to Spain’s top markets. The warehouse will have direct access to both the A-42 and the new CM-41 motorways, offering great connections with the whole of the Iberian Peninsula.
This new centre will provide the highest standards of quality, wellbeing and comfort to its users, while helping to minimise its carbon footprint, in a natural and sustainable environment. It includes various relaxation and wellness areas, natural lighting and offices with a large glass façade. The project is aiming for BREEAM Very Good certification, which recognises the sustainable construction of the logistics platform, and will also have an A-rated energy performance.
The works are scheduled to be completed in July 2022.
