Currently underway, this €200 million, 38-ha park is being delivered in partnership with Aviva Investors, creating one of the largest hubs of its kind in the country and our largest development in the Nordics to date.
Working closely with a local land promoter, Verdion secured a site on the edge of Solrød, 25 minutes from Central Copenhagen, and collaborated with the local municipality to take the site through the zoning process. Located right between the E20 motorway and a high-speed train line, and close to a local town for public transport and employment, this is an ideal site for businesses wanting to increase their activity in the region.
We identified a clear local need for more modern, more sustainable logistics space, especially for larger footprints. And with the E20 – the main Germany-Sweden road artery – right next to the site, and the Port of Køge just 15 minutes away, the park is an attractive location for businesses looking for a gateway into the wider Nordic region. The park is close enough to the capital for last-mile deliveries to much of the country’s population, and can draw from a strong local workforce.
As well as providing local employment opportunities, the park will provide new footpaths and cycle-paths linking to the town centre and its transport connections, including direct links into Central Copenhagen by the S-Train.
The new buildings will target DGNB Gold certification and energy-efficient design as standard, with high-quality design, materials and workmanship. Health and wellbeing will be an important aspect of the park as it moves forward. Plenty of greenery will be retained onsite, and we’re committing to wildlife areas within the site perimeter.
The site has capacity for up to 150,000 sq m of modern warehousing, logistics and distribution space, ranging from large, specialist built-to-suit units for e-commerce, pharmaceuticals and other specialist businesses, to smaller units for local start-ups. The first two buildings are now complete and the park is establishing itself as some of the highest quality logistics space in the Greater Copenhagen area.
