Iput doubles logistics portfolio with development land deal
Irish property company Iput Real Estate has bought 118 acres of development land in north Dublin, doubling its logistics portfolio.
The new site at Killamonan is adjacent to the 64-acre Cherryhound land that Iput acquired last year. Master-planning is already underway for that site, where Iput intends to develop the Nexus Distribution Park.
With 100 acres of the new Killamonan site zoned for industrial use, the acquisition will add up to 1.6 million sq ft of logistics assets, doubling the portfolio in size to around 5.5 million sq ft.
Iput also has a further 700,000 sq ft of logistics space under development at Quantum Distribution Park, a 10-minute drive from the new investment, and at Aerodrome Business Park in west Dublin.
“Occupier demand for logistics facilities in Ireland, particularly around the capital, continues to grow and our ambition is to double the scale of our portfolio. Following the acquisition of the land at Killamonan, we now have a substantial landbank to deliver on that objective,” said Michael Clarke, Iput chief investment officer.
“Our intention is to develop the next generation of logistics parks in Ireland, where the majority of stock is more mature and often not fit for the requirements of today’s occupiers. Our new facilities will have market-leading sustainability credentials but also offer an amenity rich environment including parks, activity spaces and features focused on the health and well-being of occupiers.”
