Goodman, the global property expert in logistics and business space, has launched its flagship development project in Poland, the Pomeranian Logistics Centre (PLC).
The Pomeranian Logistics Centre is the largest logistics hub of its kind in northern Poland.
Located adjacent to the Gdansk Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT), it is the largest logistics hub of its kind in northern Poland. When completed, it will feature approximately 500,000 m² of high quality warehouse and light industrial space. Construction of the first facility, a 14,000 m² warehouse, commenced in September 2012, with delivery planned for the end of Q1 2013. The total value of the project is estimated to exceed 300 million on completion.
"Due to its excellent location, we are convinced that our Pomeranian Logistics Centre in Gdansk will meet with considerable customer interest, particularly as northern Poland still lacks well-located logistics and industrial areas," said Blazej Ciesielczak, Regional Director Goodman Poland.
"Development of the logistics centre has significance for Gdansk as a city aiming to become the main gateway to countries in central and eastern Europe. We are pleased that construction has begun," said Boris Wenzel, CEO DCT Gdansk.
"The last few years have seen billions of euros invested in Poland's transport infrastructure by both public and private sector entities. The on-going investment process is a window of opportunity for ports and local authorities in Gdansk to create one of the largest intermodal logistics hubs on the Baltic Sea.
"The investment has the potential to become one of Poland's main economic drivers, creating new jobs and, as in the examples of Hamburg and Rotterdam, generating significant revenue for local communities and the state. Goodman's logistics centre project at Gdansk's northern port is an integral part of this vision," said Alan Aleksandrowicz, CEO Gdansk Economic Development Agency.
The Pomeranian Logistics Centre in Gdansk is Goodman's flagship development project in Poland. The PLC provides a highly flexible opportunity to develop up to 500,000 m² of logistics warehousing and production facilities with integrated office space. Built-to-suit warehouses are available from 3,500 m² at this strategic location. Both the entire logistics park as well as individual facilities will be managed by Goodman's in-house team of property managers.
"The potential customers we are targeting with this development include companies operating locally, domestically and internationally, across industry sectors including sea transport, logistics, distribution, food and FMCG. Our flexible approach allows us to offer built-to-suit warehouses, production facilities, distribution centers and office areas," Ciesielczak added.
A unique location on Poland's warehousing map
The rapidly expanding infrastructure of the Tri-City area (Gdansk, Gdynia, and Sopot) provides the Pomeranian Logistics Centre with excellent access to national and international road, rail, air and sea transportation routes. Its location next to the DCT provides
