The transactions include the development of an 85,000 sqm built-to-suit facility at Goodman Hannan Logistics Park in Wuhan, Hubei Province and a 72,000 sqm built-to-suit facility at Goodman Hunnan Logistics Centre in Shenyang, Liaoning Province.

In March, Goodman announced the signing of a 40,000 sqm logistics facility in San Esteve Sesrovires, near Barcelona. The total site area is just under 60,000 sqm and includes extensive manoeuvring areas and parking spaces for cars and trucks. Guillermo Ravell, Country Manager of Goodman in Spain, said, “We are delighted to be under development the largest project in the Barcelona area in the last 6 years”  

Philip Pearce, Goodman Executive Director said, “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Decathlon and to be their logistics solutions partner of choice as they continue to expand their business. The new leases with Decathlon reflect Goodman’s proactive, ongoing engagement with our customers, through design and development of built-to-suit logistics facilities.”

Goodman has a strong relationship with Decathlon in China, having signed three previous pre-lease agreements totally more than 169,000 sqm.
