Scannell Properties secures new tenant, Stellantis &You, for central Rome warehouse
Scannell Properties, the international property developer specialising in large-scale logistics developments, has let its Logistic Park Roma Centro to Stellantis &You, the retail division of Stellantis one of the world’s leading automakers and mobility providers. The building will serve as a distribution hub for the Stellantis &You sales and service network.
The 33,140 m² site sits at the centre of a well-established industrial zone and comprises warehouse and office space with a combined GLA of 10,102 m², over 300 parking spaces and a large area for easy manoeuvring of HGVs.
In line with Scannell’s commitment to developing sustainably, the building, which is situated on a brownfield site, has been awarded a BREEAM Very Good certification. Sustainable features include: provision to install 200 electric vehicle charging points, photovoltaic roofing, heat pumps, LED lighting with motion sensors, twilight sensors and a building management system to ensure optimal energy performance.
The warehouse fit-out was complex due to the provision for dedicated lithium-ION battery storage areas, which require high levels of fire protection and bespoke cooling and heating systems. The building also benefits from modern office, social areas and dedicated staff training facilities.
The Grade A logistics warehouse is located in Rome in the East quadrant on Via di Birolli, only 10 km to the city centre and with a consumer pool of 3.5 million people within a 45 minute drive-time. The site is just 2 km from Rome’s major ring road, the Grande Raccordo Anulare (GRA) and a short distance from the A24 "Strada dei Parchi" motorway, which connects Rome to Teramo and the A1.
Cesare Lapenna, Distrigo Director of Stellantis &You Italy, said:
“We are excited to start a new chapter of automotive spare parts distribution in Rome at via Birolli warehouse. The location of the new Stellantis &You warehouse is a strategic choice to be close to the heart of the city and to all customers, authorized and non-authorised workshops, who need a wide availability of spare parts and rapid deliveries several times a day. The new logistics centre, thanks to its innovative features and eco-sustainability, best represents our ambitions for the future and will be the first zero-emission Distrigo warehouse of Stellantis &You. We thank Scannell Properties and the team for the professionalism, availability and dedication demonstrated during this important project.”
Amaury Gariel, Scannell Properties’ Managing Director, Europe, added:
"Our goal at Scannell Properties is to provide facilities that meet high international standards and offer our clients sustainable buildings, aligned to complex business needs. The modern automotive industry requires increasingly sophisticated manufacturing and storage space, and this project is an example of our growing expertise in the sector.
“We thank Stellantis &You, our partners including our general contractor F&R S.r.l. – E2K Facility & Renovation, for the construction and fit-out work; and the local administration for their strong collaboration on this project. We are pleased to officially welcome Stellantis &You to Roma Centro.”
