The Lidl project going up in the Poniente de Granada (Escúzar) is anything but little, on its 130,000 sq/m plot.
The building complex itself will occupy 48,000 sq/m and tower some 17 metres in height and it will be slap, bang, at the entrance to the trading estate, where you can’t miss it.
The installations are not a supermarket but rather a distribution hub – Lidl has two more such hubs in Andalucía: Málaga and Dos Hermanas (Sevilla). The Escúzar one will open up eastern Andalucía to its expansion plans within the region.
The plot originally belonged to two construction companies which were unable to develop their project for it.
“We chose this municipality because of its strategic location, its good communication with nearby provinces [Jaén/Almería]. In future it will allow us to optimise out logistic routes all over Andalucía, explained a Lidl Spokesperson. The manager of the trading estate added that this logisitics hub will serve all Lidl’s supermarkets in Eastern Andalucía.
Lidl has 16 supermarkets in the province of Granada, employing some 300 personnel.
Finally, work will begin on the distribution hub at the beginning of next year.
