Paris-based logistics park developer Virtuo has signed an agreement with the Marseille Fos port authority for construction of a multi-user facility of almost 70,000m2 at Distriport, close to the Fos container terminals. 

Due to open in the third quarter of 2019, the project will feature two latest generation Class A warehouses totalling 45,000m2 and built to the BREEAM ‘Very Good’ environmental sustainability standard.

Virtuo has three other logistics developments underway in France and was looking for a platform in the south as part of a network covering the Lille, Paris, Lyon and Marseille range.  The port authority said the choice of Fos underlined the leading French port’s growing attraction as the southern gateway for Europe.

Distriport is the larger of two logistics zones at Fos, with 360,000m2 of warehousing currently operational out of a total building capacity of 575,000m2.  Meanwhile occupancy at the 364,000m2 capacity La Feuillane zone currently represents 149,000m2 of available warehouse space.
