Isle d’Abeau

A new-build asset located along France’s “logistics backbone” with good access to population centers in three countries.

About the building

Isle d’Abeau is a recently completed 21,248 square meter logistics development. The property was the first of three deliveries in a partnership with French logistics developer JMG. The facility consists of 19,966 square meters of warehouse space, 1,050 square meters of office space and 268 square meters of loading area. Specifications include a 10-meter clear height, 24 loading docks, ESFR (early suppression, fast response) sprinklers, and parking for 110 vehicles and 6 trucks.

Investment rationale

Adhering to LaSalle Encore+’s location-driven investment strategy, the asset is located along the French logistics backbone, 30 kilometres east of Lyon. It benefits from excellent connectivity to French population centers as well as major European markets, particularly in Italy and Switzerland.

Purchasing the building while it was still in a development stage provided an excellent opportunity to add an asset to the fund that had not yet reached its full value.


On completion in 2019, the asset was fully let on a long-term basis with no break clause for eight years, meaning the building is able to offer long-term stable income, while its attractive location and new condition leaves space for rent reversion and capital appreciation.

The property has an insulated double skin on courier areas, a rainwater recovery system and the office areas have a reversible heating and cooling system. It has received a BREEAM “Very Good” environmental certification for new construction. BREEAM certifications are used to assess the design, construction, intended use and futureproofing of new building developments, including the local, natural or human-created environment surrounding the building.

The fund managers are currently (February 2022) exploring the possibility of further reducing the building’s environmental impact by installing solar panels on the roof and automating energy consumption.
