The 12th Annual NAIOP Real Estate Awards is the premier commercial real estate event recognizing outstanding development projects and brokerage professionals for industrial, office and mixed-use properties in Indiana completed in 2019. The honoree this year is Bob Scannell, founder and President of Scannell Properties, a national commercial real estate company with roots in Indianapolis since its inception 30 years ago.
Construction is currently underway for a sprawling 421,000 SF bulk distribution center for the nation’s largest home-improvement retailer that is expanding into Connecticut this year. The $50 million build-to-suit project is being developed by Scannell Properties in South Windsor on behalf of Home Depot and Scannell will hold a long-term lease on the building when it’s complete in Q4, 2020.
Scannell Properties has appointed Andrea Amoretti as Client Solutions Director, Europe. Andrea is the second Pan-European hire in recent weeks and joins the company from P3 Logistic Parks.
Andrea will manage European Occupier Solutions and have responsibility for initiating and managing long-term strategic relationships with industrial, transport and retail tenants. He will also oversee all multi-site acquisition programs with specific focus on XXL logistic buildings, retail, e-commerce logistic facilities and cross-dock warehouses.
Andrea brings 14 years’ experience in the engineering and construction sector. In his most recent position as Head of Construction for Western Europe at P3 Logistic Parks, he led the construction teams and managed all large-scale logistic projects in Italy, Germany, France and Spain. Andrea coordinated all areas of projects from initial set up to final building handover and acted as the primary point of liaison for clients. Prior to this he held senior project management positions at international engineering and construction companies Arcadis and F&M Ingegneria.
During his career, he has delivered over 7.5 million sq ft of warehouse developments, including large-scale facilities in the key regions of Bavaria and Ruhr in Germany, in north-eastern Italy and Madrid.

Amaury Gariel, Managing Director, Europe commented:
“Over the last 30 years Scannell Properties has built a reputation for deep focus on tenants with half of its development volumes to date, delivered on Built-to-Suit projects, including more than 135 buildings specifically for FedEx. Andrea’s role will be pivotal in providing customers with a consistently high level of service in Europe.
“Andrea’s experience perfectly complements the skills of our growing team in Europe. His background in engineering and managing major international logistics construction projects will assist us in upscaling our operations and serving a broader group of clients.”
