The following details the new lease agreements.

  • 42,000 sq m (452,000 sq ft) to three retailers in China. With these leases, GLP establishes new customer relationships with Aeon and Metro.
  • 27,000 sq m (291,000 sq ft) to Maruni Business Logistics, a 3PL provider in Japan, to support growing demand from apparel companies. With this lease, GLP Neyagawa is fully pre-leased. The JPY5bn (US$44m) development project is expected to be completed in Q1 FY19.

In Japan, we expect absorption to remain strong and we will continue to focus on the core markets of Tokyo and Osaka. In China, consumers continue moving toward organized retail channels and we will continue to provide well-located logistics facilities and value-added solutions to support these growth trends.”
