Blackbrook Capital (Blackbrook), a specialist European real estate investor focusing on future-proof supply chain infrastructure, announced it has secured a lease with a European leader in contract logistics with expertise in the e-commerce and textile sectors, for its facility in Poznan, Western Poland.
The tenant will use the site to service a contract with one of the world’s largest clothing companies.
Blackbrook speculatively developed the 50,000 sqm Class A logistics facility to address the significant supply-demand imbalance in the Western Polish market. The asset, which was completed in 2023, is prepared for solar energy production and was designed to a BREEAM Excellent standard.
The optimised layout and high specifications of Blackbrook’s standalone facility offer its newest tenant the flexibility to adapt the entire site to its needs and make substantial investments in internal modifications and machinery. Blackbrook has also agreed to make further improvements to the facility to ensure employee satisfaction, including additional natural light and high-end office specifications.
Jon Strang, Managing Director of Blackbrook said: “Our facility in Poznan, one of Poland’s core logistics markets, is well connected for serving both Polish and Western European markets, and has been built to meet the highest industry standards, making it a perfect fit for our new tenant. By taking the opportunity to expand the site during the development phase and make it as operationally efficient as possible, we have secured a quality long-term occupier who in turn will bring fresh employment opportunities to the local area.”
Arvi Luoma, Co-Founder & CEO of Blackbrook added: “This development is a testament to our strategy to bring future-proof supply chain infrastructure assets to Europe’s under-served logistics markets. We are pleased that our newest tenant has recognised the quality, design and location of our facility, and has committed to the full site with long-term occupation in mind.”
