European Logistics Investment (ELI), a dynamically developing logistics platform, has started construction works on the second phase of its warehouse scheme in one of the key logistics regions in Poland – Silesia. Park Tychy II, a 43 000 sqm project is planned as a mixed-use property with a BREEAM certificate at the Excellent level. The building is already leased in almost 100 percent to two tenants – Tiberina Group subsidiary U-Form, a leading supplier of components for the automotive sector in the EMEA region and Nodium Group, the owner of two online platforms.
European Logistics Investment’s (ELI) most recent warehouse project in the Silesia region has now entered a new phase. Park Tychy II, upon completion planned for Q4 2021, will offer 43,000 sqm of green warehouse space. The project is developed as a mixed-use property.
ELI has already leased 23,150 sqm on a long-term agreement to Tiberina Group and U-Form – the manufacturer of automotive parts, implementing a strategy aimed at the reduction of energy consumption in their production. The second tenant of the Park is Nodium Group that will take up 15,400 sqm. The company is to consolidate its operations and is expanding into more warehouse space due to the growth of its two online platforms: sport.shop.pl – one of the largest online sports stores in Poland – and nodik.pl with a range of children’s goods.
The project is to be BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified and will be equipped with a range of sustainability and well-being features. These will include systems for limiting the water, energy and heat consumption, and others for significantly reducing CO2 emissions; while those employed in the park will have access to green relaxation zones, bicycle facilities and electric car charging stations.
“Implementing green solutions in line with BREEAM certification does not only save the natural resources but – what we find is crucial for production companies – is also aimed at reducing operational costs and at better management of energy consumption. We are pleased to announce the successful progress of our investment equipped with the newest green solutions, located in the booming warehouse cluster in Upper Silesia,” says Hubert Rossa, Senior Vice President Investments at Griffin Real Estate responsible for ELI platform development.
The whole complex will comprise two buildings and provide a total GLA of 100,000 sqm. Building 1, with 58,000 sqm of warehouse space and 2,500 sqm of integral office area, has been 100 percent let on a long-term lease. The Park is located in a popular warehouse cluster of Tychy, known for automobile production, with such brands as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group. The location guarantees access to a highly qualified workforce and great connectivity within the Silesia and the CEE regions.
