Thanks to its functionality, which has been studied in detail, it will be a perfect tool for its user for last mile logistics activities:


9.400 sqm

8,200 sqm of partly automated messaging system

1,200 sqm of office space, half of which is on a mezzanine floor

10 dock doors

A 3,000 sqm exterior canopy housing the 10 loading access doors for vans

Internalisation of flows with 130 parking and waiting spaces for vans


Its elegant architecture is characterised by the combination of modern and local materials, including the use of 100,000 local bricks on the façade.


The development, which is BREEAM Very Good certified, highlights the landscaping, which cover more than 25% of the land area and allow for the total infiltration of rainwater. The roof is pv solar ready. There are also 8 e-charging stations and 20% of the car parks are pre-equipped to meet changing needs as they arise.


In addition to its sustainable qualities, this is the first Goodman development in France to participate in CO2 offsetting via the planting of 9,000 trees in the Pas-de-Calais (i.e. almost one tree per square metre of built area) and the financing of a biodiversity project to requalify the natural environment in Normandy.
