Haps 2 February 2024, FootLocker, a leading player in the world of athletic lifestyle and athleisure shoes and clothing, recently entered into a strategic and long-term lease agreement with Nabuurs Beheer for a large-scale European distribution center.
The distribution center, located along the A73 on the Laarakker business park in Haps, is an impressive ‘build to suit’ project consisting of approximately 33,380 m² of warehouse, mezzanine, and office space.
This modern distribution center, designed and constructed by the renowned constructor Heembouw, will be a model of sustainability with a focus on nature conservation. It will be delivered with the BREEAM Very Good label, with completion scheduled for August 2024.
The site, owned by the Nabuurs family since the 1990s and always used for logistical purposes, is currently undergoing a transformation. All old buildings have been demolished, and the construction of the new distribution center has officially begun.
The new distribution center will be connected to an existing distribution center of 13,400 m² through three passageways. The existing center was completed in 2020 and is still in use by Nabuurs Logistiek. This adjacent building will also be utilized by FootLocker.
From this state-of-the-art distribution center, FootLocker will serve its European customers using a fully automated order picking system. This enables FootLocker to efficiently and rapidly distribute its products and meet the growing demand in the market.
In this transaction, FootLocker received legal guidance from BarentsKrans and commercial support from Cushman & Wakefield. Nabuurs received legal support from CMS Advocaten and commercial guidance from INDUSTRIAL Real Estate Partners.
