VGP acquires three plots of land near Frankfurt Airport

European logistics real estate company VGP NV has purchased three plots of land in Rüsselsheim am Main, strategically located at less than a 15 minutes’ drive from Frankfurt Airport.

With a total area exceeding 700,000 m², these plots were acquired from Stellantis, a globally recognized automotive group and mobility provider.

Stellantis is in the process of optimising its historic Opel production site in Rüsselsheim, a site with over a century of history. Initially, Stellantis will lease back the properties, gradually releasing them for redevelopment.

VGP plans to build a business park of approximately 350,000 m2 for industrial companies and small and medium-sized value-added businesses.

This prime location offers unparalleled advantages, with Frankfurt Airport accessible within a 15-minute drive and through a direct connection from the railway station on the site. Furthermore the international finance centre of Frankfurt, Wiesbaden or Mainz can be reached within 20 minutes (direct connections from the railway station or by motorway), offering links to ICE railway stations. The site’s strategic location is further enhanced by direct access to the State-B43 through road and convenient proximity to four national motorways (A3, A60, A67, A671). Additionally, with direct harbour access to the river Main, the site boasts tri-modality transport potential.

VGP aims for an ambitious environmental approach for the park, committing to achieving a minimum DGNB Gold certification for all buildings. The new park will be largely independent from the grid as it will benefit from existing electricity facilities and water treatment and recycling services. Rooftops are expected to be equipped with photovoltaic panels and a geothermal system is projected to contribute to the facility’s energy and heating needs by 2025.

This marks VGP’s second significant brownfield acquisition this month, following the purchase of a 194,000 m2 land plot in Vélizy, Paris region, France.
