Goodman Group has been awarded the tender for the exclusive investment in, and development of, the 500,000 m² Pomeranian Logistics Center adjacent to the newly built Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) at Gdansk, Poland. The development will be in partnership with InvestGDA, and will be the largest logistics project undertaken in Northern Poland. Upon completion, the value of the project has the potential to exceed 300 million.
Goodman's Group Chief Executive Officer, Greg Goodman said: "We are very happy to have been awarded the tender for this milestone project and look forward to working closely with the City of Gdansk and all project partners. Goodman will use its worldwide expertise in logistics development, master planning and property management to develop a premier logistics center that will cater for, and support, the future growth of the Deepwater Container Terminal at Gdansk."
Speaking today, Blazej Ciesielczak, Country Manager Goodman Poland said: "We will commence development at the Pomeranian Logistics Center on a pre-committed basis and have the ability to deliver completed facilities within a ten month period. We are excited by the opportunities this prime location offers, given the current undersupply of prime logistics and industrial facilities in northern Poland.
"Goodman will target a diverse portfolio of local, national and international companies, active across a number of sectors including, maritime transport, logistics, distribution, food and fast moving consumer goods. We have the flexibility to develop tailor-made facilities such as warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities and office space that reflect our customers' individual requirements."
Goodman can provide a range of solutions at the Pomeranian Logistics Center including buildings for lease or sale. The logistics park and all property developed by Goodman will be managed by Goodman's in-house Property Services team.
Danny Peeters, Goodman's Chief Executive Officer, Continental Europe, added: "Goodman's financial strength and access to capital sources has facilitated the growth of its development activity across Europe, including Poland. A number of significant projects have been announced in recent months and we have signed contracts for new developments in France, Germany, Poland and Slovakia totaling over 180,000 m². These new pre-committed developments further demonstrate our expertise and ability to deliver tailor-made solutions for our clients in strategic locations across Europe. Today's announcement confirms confidence in Goodman, as
