GF Logistikk AS moves into a new building at OAC
GF Logistikk AS has entered into a 10-year lease agreement for a new logistics building that will be centrally located in Oslo Airport City. The company describes the choice of location as obvious.
The new 6,000 m2 building, situated between the World Seafood Center and the Art and Value Storage Facility that is already under construction will meet high standards, with BREEAM environmental certification. District heating will be supplied directly from Statkraft.
“The new building is an obvious choice”
"Designed with forward-looking and flexible solutions, it will be ideal for handling air freight, technical deliveries, and terminal operations," says Thor Thoeneie, CEO of Oslo Airport City.
The new building will serve as GF Logistikk's primary hub for distribution across Norway.
“The choice of Oslo Airport City as the lessor and developer gradually became very clear. Situated in the heart of the new logistics park, the location is highly attractive, and from very early in the process, the developer showed flexibility and willingness to create a building with excellent, innovative solutions tailored to our operations," says Managing Director Ståle Bjørdal of GF Logistikk AS.
“We at Oslo Airport City are very pleased with the agreement. GF Logistikk is an appealing tenant seeking a new, space-efficient building with sustainable solutions tailored to current operations. Furthermore, the building will be designed with the flexibility to adapt to future needs and market demand," says Thoeneie.
GF Logistikk will actively participate in the planning and construction phases, which are scheduled to start in autumn 2023 with completion expected towards the end of 2024. The project will be executed as a turnkey contract with Vedal Construction and Astrup & Hellern as architects, following the same model as the two logistics buildings already under construction on neighbouring plots, totalling 70,000 m2.
Oslo Airport City will have a total of 76,000 m2 of logistics under construction this autumn, potentially establishing it as the largest private developer, not only at Gardermoen but also for Eastern Norway’s entire region.
“We are also working on several exciting new ventures and are currently engaged in discussions and negotiations regarding solutions and agreements with future tenants, users and buyers in logistics, mobility, and hotels," says Thoeneie.
