Logistics BusinessRealogis connects landlords and tenants for more than 8,000 m? in Hamburg’s former “Freihafen“ port area – still a popular location

Realogis – Germany’s leading consulting firm for logistics properties, industrial properties, and commercial parks – has arranged two leases in Hamburg’s former “Freihafen” area. One was for a leading wholesaler based in Hamburg, which will relocate its new headquarters to the core location within the “Kleiner Grasbrook” port area. The company, a large distributor and processor of dried herb and fruit tea mixes for the tea industry, signed a long-term lease for the property. The newly completed warehouse complex offers a total of about 3,700 sqm, of which 2,965 sqm is warehouse space, 200 sqm is office space, and 500 sqm are outdoors. An owner-occupied company based in the Port of Hamburg is the lessor and the property has excellent access to the A252, A255, and A1 Autobahns as well as to the port’s terminals.

In addition, the H. D. Cotterell warehousing operation is leasing 4,420 sqm in the listed “Schuppen 52” building located on Australiastra?e. The space offers only basic appointments, but is close to port operations and comes with a more affordable lease than newer, high-end logistics buildings. The traditional company has been doing business in the Port of Hamburg for more than 120 years and specializes in warehousing and distributing cocoa beans, coffee, dried fruit, nuts, spices, and natural rubber. A foundation is the lessor of the unheated warehouse building.
