P3 Logistic Parks, a long-term investor and developer of high-quality European warehouse facilities, has started construction of the final warehouse – comprising 77,630 sqm – at its Poznań park, located in a prime location between Berlin in Germany, and Warsaw in Poland. Almost a third of the new space, 25,507 sqm, has already been leased to the logistics company Kurier, owned by the VAN group.
Magda Twarowska, Head of Leasing P3 Logistic Parks in Poland, said: “For many years, Park P3 Poznań has been very popular with tenants from a variety of sectors. In the last year alone, we commissioned and leased over 120,000 sqm of modern warehouse space in this location. Once this final facility is completed, the total area of all warehouses on the site will stand at approximately 405,000 sqm, making it one of the largest logistic parks in the Wielkopolska region. We are delighted that our long-standing client VAN group, also recognises the potential of this location and has decided to develop its business in one of our parks.”
The new building is being constructed by the requirements of a BREEAM certification at the ‘Excellent’ level. Panels with a PIR core will provide effective insulation from environmental effects, while a reinforced roof will allow for the installation of solar panels in future. Energy-saving LED lighting will be installed throughout the warehouse, along with an automatic DALI control system. Taps with water-saving aerators in the bathrooms will be activated by motion sensors, which also provides a hygiene benefit. The building will be equipped with greywater recovery facilities and an astronomical clock which provides pinpoint accuracy. The greenery around the building will not require watering. The facility will also include two electric car charging stations, as well as parking spaces for bicycles. The general contractor is Atlas Ward Polska.
Leszek Stasiński, Contract Logistics Development Manager at VAN group, said: “We have been successfully cooperating with P3 Logistic Parks for many years, as one of our warehouses operates in the P3 Błonie park, near Warsaw. We think favourably of our relationship to date and that is why, when we were looking for a new suitable location in western Poland, we decided upon P3 and the Poznań park. I am sure our ongoing collaboration will continue to be successful and allow us to effectively provide contract logistics services for our partners.”
The P3 Poznań park is located 16 km from downtown Poznań, close to the S11 expressway. The A2 motorway runs nearby, providing a convenient connection eastward to Warsaw and westward to Berlin. The excellent location of the park attracts customers in e-commerce, manufacturing companies, and those distributing products to western European markets.
