TCC Secures Building Permit on First German Site  Completes Acquisition of Second

Trammell Crow Company (TCC), a leading global developer and investor in commercial real estate, has secured the building permit on its first site in Germany and completed the acquisition of its second, both in Neuruppin, Brandenburg, near Berlin.

Having entered an exclusive agreement with Entwicklungsgesellschaft Temnitz (EGT Temnitzpark) earlier this year to acquire Neuruppin BF36, a greenfield site of 132,185 sq m, TCC has now completed the transaction. It plans to develop a 51,624 sq m GLA facility with the ability to accommodate multiple occupiers, with construction commencing in Q1 2023.

Completion of the deal coincides with TCC securing the building permit on its first German site, the neighbouring Neuruppin BF33. This 80,159 sq m site will be transformed into a 41,173 sq m GLA logistics warehouse to accommodate multiple occupiers, with construction scheduled to begin this month and complete in Q3 2023.

Located in proximity to the A24 motorway junction, which connects Berlin to Hamburg, the third largest container port in Europe, the sites are well situated in the centre of Europe.

TCC’s prime logistics developments across Europe are designed and constructed to the same standard. This includes a BREEAM Very Good or Excellent rating, an EPC A certification, and construction that enables full photovoltaic rooftop installations. TCC also designs its assets to reduce the embodied carbon footprint of its warehouses per sq m year-on-year, and provides multi-modal electric vehicle charging facilities for cars, motorbikes, cycles, scooters and HGVs.

Having launched in Europe in 2021, the US-based global developer now has teams operating out of Hamburg, Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Paris, Barcelona and Prague, and in addition to its German developments has acquired sites in the UK, Spain and the Czech Republic.

Mario Sander, Head of Germany and Austria Logistics at Trammell Crow Company, said: “With the building permit secured on our first site and completion on the acquisition of our second, Trammell Crow Company’s rapid growth in Germany continues at pace. With an excellent location near Berlin at the heart of Europe, these Grade A logistics assets will be appealing to a range of occupiers. Developed to the same high standards as our assets across Europe, occupiers will take space knowing the premium quality to which we develop our warehouses and in full understanding that not only do they feature excellent environmental credentials for today, but that they are built in anticipation of future regulatory requirements that will ensure they remain attractive for years to come.”
