Mrec Investment Management and Slättö are developing an advanced logistics center in Tuusula
Mrec Investment Management Oy, together with its partner Slättö, through its logistics platform Evolv, are developing a modern logistics property of 6,000m² in Tuusula’s attractive Sula industrial area, with easy access to the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and main highways.
The new project is guided by ambitious ESG goals from planning to completion. The property is also implemented in accordance with the EU taxonomy, energy class A and is targeted for BREEAM Excellent certification. The long lease agreement signed for the property is also in line with the Green Lease goals.
The AutoStore™ automated storage and collection system (ASRS) will be implemented in the property. The system guarantees the user a flexible and modular solution, which makes collecting more efficient. Element Logic Oy will deliver the system for the new project.
“Tuusula municipality’s investment in the land use planning has brought new investors to Tuusula. The location of the Sula area is logistically excellent, and has for example, a short distance to the airport. This under-construction logistics center is a proof of the attractiveness and strong development of the Sula region. More commercial plots are becoming available in the area. We welcome the new company to Tuusula”, states Kalle Ikkelä, the mayor of Tuusula
“We are very excited to break ground for this sustainable and automated logistics center in Tuusula and look forward to welcome our new tenant into the premises next summer”, says Lars Axelsson, Partner at Slättö and Head of Evolv.
“We are very satisfied that the project we have developed has reached the implementation phase and that we are able to offer energy-efficient and modern solutions for our tenant. We have chosen modern logistics as a central focus area and our goal is to build a high-quality logistics real estate portfolio over the next five years. We have new projects on our planning table all the time, and hopefully will soon be able to tell you more about the next steps,” says Ilmo Jäntti, CEO of Mrec Investment Management Oy.
Construction began in Fall 2023 with an estimated completion Summer 2024. Mrec Investment Management is responsible for project development throughout the lifecycle of the new project. The contractor is Tekova Etelä-Suomi Oy.
