A site measuring 93,000 m² has changed hands in Winsen (Luhe). The previous owner, a real estate company, had awarded Hamburg-based provider of property services Grossmann & Berger, a member of German Property Partners, an exclusive contract to broker the sale. The site consists of two parts: an industrial area with halls and offices at Tönnhäuser Weg 100-106 and an undeveloped commercial site on Boschstrasse. The property is located between Winsen (Luhe) town centre and the River Ilmenau in the business park called Osterwiesen/Boschstrasse.
A private investor from Hamburg has purchased the built-up industrial site on Tönnhäuser Weg. A veneer works used to operate on the site. This brownfield location is 57,731 m² in size and the buildings on it offer some 18,447 m² of rentable space. These premises consist mainly of industrial halls and offices. Today, some 20 firms rent space here.
The 35,740 m² “greenfield” site on Boschstrasse is now owned by Winsen (Luhe) town council. The town plans to invite small commercial firms to settle here.
The parties involved agreed not to disclose the prices paid.
In view of the variety of transport options available - motorway, rail and waterway - plus its location just outside Hamburg, Winsen (Luhe) has become a sought-after location for commercial enterprises; in 2016 Amazon, an online trader, built its new logistics centre in the town.
