Goodman Group Stakeholder Review 2021


Located at the Port of Gennevilliers, Goodman’s new sustainable urban regeneration project, GREEN DOCK, will showcase best practices in decarbonised logistics.

The 90,000 sqm four-level facility will link directly to the River Seine, allowing urban distribution businesses to provide last mile delivery and develop river based transport into Paris.

GREEN DOCK’s ecologically sensitive design has a façade that will use natural, recycled materials including wood and concrete to integrate into its Seine riverbank surroundings. The project incorporates some of the largest sustainability initiatives in industrial real estate, aiming for BREEAM certification at Outstanding level plus BiodiverCity and low-carbon labels.

Market update

In Continental Europe, urbanisation is expected to exceed 80% by 2050*. It is a fiercely competitive property market with strong demand for industrial space, solid rental growth and few vacancies in certain land-constrained cities. The COVID-19 pandemic fuelled e-commerce growth.

In the United Kingdom, land supply in urban areas such as London is scarce and expensive. There is strong rental growth, particularly in London and the South East, with a national vacancy rate of less than 6% and below 3% in London. The pandemic saw online UK food sales increase by 70% on the previous year.
