European Logistics Investment (ELI), a dynamically developing logistics platform, has commenced constructing a modern logistics centre in Błonie near Warsaw. The Park Warsaw West X project by ELI and its partner Panattoni is planned as a multi-let facility offering nearly 49,000 sqm of modern warehouse space. The investment is planned to be delivered in Q2 2022.
European Logistics Investment (ELI) has completed the purchase of a plot of land for the construction of a new logistics centre in Błonie near Warsaw. Park Warsaw West X, which is scheduled to be completed in Q2 2022, will offer a total of 48,600 sqm of modern space, with 46,900 sqm of warehouse and 1,700 sqm of office space. The Park will also provide 238 parking lots for cars, 14 for lorries, a modern ESFR sprinkler system, 88 loading ramps for lorries and 24h/7 security. ELI will execute the project together with its strategic partner Panattoni, a leading developer of logistics facilities in Europe.
Another advantage of the park is its location close to Warsaw (35 minutes drive from the city centre), which will allow transporting goods both within the capital as well as the entire Warsaw agglomeration. The plot on which Warsaw West X will be constructed ensures convenient access to the A2 motorway (connecting Warsaw with Poznań and Berlin). The project is also conveniently located near two international airports (Warsaw-Modlin Airport and Chopin Airport in Warsaw). The infrastructure of the area where the ELI park is located is developing rapidly. The Central Transport Hub is to be located in the nearby Baranów municipality and will become an important hub including, among all, a new airport.
“Warsaw continues to be one the leaders of the warehouse market with the highest demand. Facilities that are tailored to meet the needs of tenants from the logistics and e-commerce sectors remain the most popular. The convenient location of our project and the chosen technological solutions create great development opportunities for companies from these industries. Tenants are looking for modern and ‘green’ facilities that will offer not only convenient access but also comfort at work. That is why we are considering the latest environmental solutions and sustainable development certification for the park already at the planning stage,” said Łukasz Toczek, Senior Vice President Investments at Griffin Real Estate responsible for the development of the ELI platform.
The building is to undergo the BREEAM certification process with the expectation to obtain an Excellent rating. Green solutions have been planned in the facility, including systems reducing the consumption of water, energy and heat, and significantly cutting CO2 emissions. Future employees will also have access to green relaxation zones, bicycle rooms and electric vehicle charging stations.
