New warehousing centre near Namur

There is another piece of news in the domain of logistics and warehousing – a segment tipped to emerge from the current crisis positively. Developer BVI has announced that it will be opening a new SME business park in Floreffe (Namur), with delivery planned for autumn of this year. The new park will offer 40 SME units intended for storage purposes, says the company, with the possibility of a workshop, a B2B showroom and office space. The business park is located on the N90 (Rue Riverre), a strategic position as this is the main road between Namur and Charleroi. The SME units available are said to offer excellent flexibility and are available in sizes from 144 m² to 1650 m².

BVI has a number of business parks across Belgium, and in a recent interview with L’Echo, Michel Meers, founder and CEO explains the company’s philosophy: “Our country needs well thought-out and sustainable business parks. Our parks are veritable eco-systems where enterprises can work together and mutually inspire each other. Within a single park, we try to find a balance between offices, showrooms, co-working spaces…”.

In terms of the outlook for logistics and semi-industrial real estate, in its recent ‘post-covid’ market analysis, advisor JLL had this to say: ‘Companies which have moved to very lean supply chains (with low inventory cover) may decide they need to increase their inventory levels. This will be reinforced by the likelihood that volatility and risk will also increase long-term due to the climate emergency. This could lead to higher demand for warehousing.'
