MDC2 – a developer of sustainable warehouse and logistics space operating on the Polish market, together with the investor, Invesco Real Estate, has finalized a lease of 10,784 sqm in MDC2 Park Gliwice. The tenant is an international manufacturer providing comprehensive IT solutions for energy markets, service providers, enterprises and industrial markets.
MDC2 Park Gliwice consists of three warehouse buildings with a total area of 57,000 sqm. The park is located at the junction of two highways: A4, which runs across Poland from east to west, starting from Ukraine, through Germany to Spain, and A1, running north to south, connecting the Baltic ports with the Mediterranean Sea. The surrounding communication routes also include a network of national roads, including the local Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa (central highway) – extremely popular in the Upper Silesian Agglomeration.
“We are delighted to welcome another tenant (a global leader in information technology) who chose MDC2 Park Gliwice thanks to its low carbon dioxide emissions, as well as reduced electricity consumption. By using the best, environmentally sustainable storage solutions, together we can meet the high demands of the modern world,” says Katarzyna Dudzik, Development Director, MDC 2.
MDC2 Park Gliwice is being developed to BREEAM New Construction Outstanding. Such a high rating is possible thanks to the use of a number of solutions that increase the energy efficiency of buildings, as well as thanks to a well-thought-out environment rich in biodiversity and prepared with the well-being of employees in mind.
“I’m glad that I could advise together with Filip Deleżyński in the client’s localization process. The project had a very short time horizon, but thanks to the excellent cooperation with MDC2, we managed to successfully complete it. The choice of the MDC2 park was influenced by factors such as its location in the immediate vicinity of the A4 and A1 highways, access to a skilled workforce, support from the Katowice Special Economic Zone (the project received a decision on support), and ESG factors. In the near future, the building will receive the BREEAM New Construction Outstanding certificate, which held significant importance as the client paid strong attention to this matter. It’s worth adding that it would be the client’s flagship project in Europe,” says Łukasz Ciepły, Senior Associate, Industrial and Logistics Agency, Colliers.
MDC 2 Park Gliwice will start its operations this fall.
The investor of the project is a German fund whose assets are managed by Invesco Real Estate. Colliers advised on the lease transaction.
