Verdion secures Malmö brownfield opportunity for urban logistics

 Verdion has secured a further site for its growing programme of logistics development in Sweden.

Located within the Fosie industrial area of southeastern Malmö, this new acquisition offers an infill development opportunity on a 50,000 sq m site close to the E6/E65 interchange.

Verdion will speculatively develop 28,000 sqm of high-quality urban logistics warehousing in a single building, which could be divided into four units, with completion anticipated for Q2/3 2026. The new facilities will include warehousing, office, welfare and mezzanine areas, with high levels of sustainability throughout and the BREEAM Excellent certification targeted.

In the last three years Verdion has secured new sites in Rosersberg and Södertälje (north and south of Stockholm), Gothenburg and Jӧnkӧping. Its first project in Southern Sweden was the development of a specialist built to suit facility for BMW supporting the distribution of automotive parts across Swedish markets. The company’s Nordics portfolio also includes assets in Greater Copenhagen and Jutland.

Fredrik Salman, Investment Manager at Verdion, said: “Securing brownfield assets for urban logistics is a key part of our growth strategy in the Nordics, and this was an attractive opportunity close to Malmö’s consumers and transport network. The Öresund Region is the largest consumer market in the Nordics and given the established location and current levels of demand, we expect good interest ahead of completion.”

Linklaters and PWC advised Verdion.
