Prologis Breaks Ground on 56 000 Square Metre Building at Moissy-Cramayel (77) for Cultura and Launches Eegle, its Digital Tool
Paris (20 September 2017) – Prologis, the global leader in logistics real estate, today welcomed Line Magne, Mayor of Moissy-Cramayel and Vice-President of Communauté d’agglomération GRAND PARIS SUD – Seine Essonne Sénart and Laurent Geraudie, Logistics Director of Cultura to a groundbreaking event for the 56 000 square metre building it is developing for Cultura, a specialist retailer in the creative and cultural sector, at Prologis Park Moissy 2 Les Chevrons.
The new building will allow Cultura to rationalize its distribution operations at a major logistics hub in the Ile-de-France region and expand its e-commerce activities. The building is scheduled to be completed in early 2018.
At Prologis Park Moissy 2 Les Chevrons, which was acquired in 2012, Prologis has regenerated the former PSA Peugeot manufacturing site at Moissy-Cramayel, improving its biodiversity and attracting new employers to the local area. The redevelopment of Moissy 2 builds upon Prologis’ success in regenerating the former Michelin site at Poitiers and the former Mercedes site at Mitry-Mory.
The groundbreaking also marked the official launch of Eegle, a digital interface developed by Prologis and Resolving. Enabling customers to manage their logistics buildings remotely, Eegle helps users optimize a building’s operations, reduce its running costs and minimize its environmental impact.
Eegle is the first digital tool of its kind in the industrial real estate sector. It is based on a 3D model of the building using the BIM (Building Information Modelling) system. The digital interface is connected to the building by sensors and allows users to monitor energy consumption, manage maintenance deadlines and detect any operational malfunction.
Entrepôts XXL France, subsidiary of Tostain & Laffineur, advised both parties in the Cultura project. Prologis contracted with IDEC for the building construction.
