Grégory BLOUIN, President of Virtuo, and Crescent Marault, President of the agglomeration community, signed this afternoon the sale agreements for approximately 142,000 m², i.e. 14 hectares of land in the AuxR_Parc business park. This sale will generate a little over 6 million euros for the community. Virtuo will be developing two logistics parks called V.PARK AUXERRE 1 & 2 by 2024.
Following a memorandum of understanding signed at the end of 2021, this milestone will allow Virtuo Industrial Property to file the required building permits for the construction of two buildings of approximately 37,000 and 25,000 m² each. They will accommodate companies specializing in semi-industrial or distribution logistics activities. These facilities will benefit from the landscape and environmental appeal of the Appoigny site.
Virtuo, which will invest 60 million euros to carry out these operations, will be managing the work as well as providing support to the future users of the buildings and managing the relationship with them.
“We are delighted with the signing of this agreement to sell. Up until now, companies wishing to set up on the site were unable to do so because the business park, as it had been designed, did not allow it. With these first two buildings the objective is to be able to welcome project leaders who are not local who will bring in additional tax revenues, jobs and business for our local companies by setting up here in Auxerre,” emphasizes Crescent Marault.
“This investment fits in with our French investment strategy because we believe in the potential of the area: Auxerre is ideally located on the A6 freeway, the main transit route for goods to France. It is also a very dynamic area capable of attracting companies to the region. The availability and quality of the local workforce is a major asset for the region”, explains Grégory Blouin, founder and president of Virtuo Industrial Property.
