October 9 - Antwerp Port Authority has revealed that 96 ha of land have become available at the port of Antwerp.
The port of Antwerp is one of Europe's leading breakbulk and project cargo gateways, and the new location is ideally suited for industrial development, says the port authority.
Approximately 950,000 sq m of space within the Churchill Industrial Zone will enable a new investor to erect new buildings and industrial facilities. Already onsite are three buildings with a floor area spanning 341,000 sq m - including a former assembly hall, warehouses, an administrative building and a press shop. Inspections have shown the most of the buildings are in a reasonable condition, although any investor will have the choice to demolish and reconstruct them, says Antwerp Port Authority.
The site has good connections with all major European cities thanks to an extensive multimodal transport network. The site is located alongside deepsea docks, has its own railway spur and is connected to a dense road network.
Candidates have until January 15, 2015 to submit their proposals to the Antwerp Port Authority. More information can be found here.
