Generali Real Estate has successfully delivered a prime logistics asset in Corbas, in the immediate surroundings of Lyon, to the international supply chain solutions provider STERNE, specialized in premium transport, including time-critical and tailor-made shipping.
The logistics asset has been acquired on behalf of the pan-European “Generali Real Estate Logistics Fund” (GRELF), reserved for professional investors and managed by Generali Real Estate S.p.A. Società di gestione del risparmio, from the French developer PRD.
The prime, latest-generation logistics building comprises a total area of nearly 13,000 sqm (over 10,500 sqm of storage area and more than 2,000 sqm of office space). It has been designed by the architecture firm SOHO, according to the highest standards in terms of energy efficiency, comfort for occupants and respect for the environment. Thanks to features such as a high-performance building envelope, recovery and reuse of rainwater, attention to greenery, plenty of natural and LED lighting and a photovoltaic power plant of the roof, the building is in line with BREEAM “Very Good” requirements and ISO14001 standard. In addition, at least 80% of construction site waste have been recycled.
This logistics plant benefits from an ideal location near Lyon, the third largest city in France, and easy connections to the Lyon Saint-Exupéry international airport and to the commercial harbour Edouard Herriot on the Rhône river. The municipality of Corbas is part of the ZI Lyon Sud Est, the most important business area in the Lyon conurbation.
