Nikolskoye Logistics Centre will be built in Moscow Region

Moscow, August 13, 2012 – National Energy company (National Energy, a limited liability company, a joint venture of EASTWARD Capital and NATIONAL Consulting) has obtained a permission for the construction of Nikolskoye, a new class А logistics complex with a total area of 106,000 sq. m. Intensive works on the facility erection will commence as early as August 2012, putting the facility into operation is scheduled for September 2013. Two international consultants, Jones Lang LaSalle and Knight Frank, have been appointed co-exclusive leasing agents.

The Nikolskoye logistics complex is located on a plot of 20 ha, in the vicinity of Nikolskoye village, near Iksha urban-type settlement in the Dmitrov district of the Moscow region, 600 m from А-107 road (“Moscow Small Ring”).

The plot has convenient transport links. The distance from the MRR is about 35 km, the distance from Leningradskoye shosse (the main route for importing vehicles from Europe) – 17 km, to Dmitrovskoyoe shosse – 7 км, to Rogachevskoye shosse – 5 km. The distance to a junction with a new Leningradskoye shosse  will be 14 km.

In the nearest future, the transport importance of this plot will increase as the Central Ring Road (CRR) will go directly along its eastern frontier. Along the plot’s northern frontier, the existing Hyundai MOBIS logistics complex, with the area of nearly 40 thousand sq. m, is located.

The Nikolskoye LC project has been developed by TEBODIN, a Dutch company specializing in designing logistics and industrial facilities. The facility will be equipped with the up-to-date fire-fighting, security, alarm and video surveillance systems, as well as with other modern  engineering systems. The complex infrastructure will include a parking lot for trucks and cars with 120 and 160 parking spaces respectively.

Alexey Labzin, Director of Investment Department of EASTWARD Capital, a Shareholder of the Nikolskoye LC project, noted: “At present, Nikolskoye is one of the few logistics complexes being constructed in the north-west of the Moscow region. Our strategic goal is to implement a  highly liquid investment product at the international level.”

Petr Zaritsky, National Director, Head of Industrial Agency of Jones Lang LaSalle, commented: “The vacancy rate in the Moscow region  remains low: in the past six months, it was less than two percent. Besides, the market participants have not actually declared any truly new projects, in general, the later phases of the well-known  logistics complexes are realized in the market. Against this background, the construction of the Nikolskoye LC seems to be a timely and well thought-out investment decision. We feel confident about the success of the project and anticipate a high interest from large Russian and international tenants.”

Anton Repin, Deputy Director of Warehouse and Industrial Real Estate and Land Department of Knight Frank, added: “Taking into account the current situation with the demand in the warehouse real estate market of, we expect that the project will be attractive for the leading Russian and western companies that plan their development in the northern part of the Moscow region. Its good location, effective modern design approaches and wide application of energy-saving technologies that enable the tenants to reduce service charges will play the key role in taking a decision on a lease of space in the Nikolskoye project.”

The Nikolskoye project development and financing is performed by EASTWARD Capital and NATIONAL Consulting, operating in the market for more than 10 years. The companies already have to their credit more than 500 thousand sq. m of the realized logistics, industrial and commercial floor space.
