MLP Group has begun the construction of MLP Business Park Berlin I, a city logistics project located south of Berlin, with the smallest lettable units starting from 700m². The general contractor on the project is Koster GmbH.
"We are comfortable building speculative space in Germany. Given low vacancy rates, the country’s demand for warehouse space is constantly growing, with e-commerce and logistics companies as the key growth drivers. Therefore, I am confident that the present situation will not prevent us from winning tenants quickly. A powerful advantage of MLP Business Park Berlin I is its location, only 20 km from the Berlin city centre," said Patrick Kurowski, Country Manager at MLP Group S.A. for Germany and Austria.
MLP Business Park Berlin I will be built in line with the latest trends in the warehouse property market. This logistics and business park will feature city logistics facilities, which are small warehouse modules with cutting-edge modern office space finished to a very high standard. The modules are intended primarily for e-commerce, courier and light manufacturing companies. In line with the standard practices applied by MLP Group, MLP Business Park Berlin I is fully BREEAM certified. Also, solar photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roofs to enable MLP Group to offer its tenants much lower electricity bills compared with competitors.
"We are very pleased that despite uncertainty associated with the coronavirus epidemic, we have been able to secure all required administrative decisions and can proceed to build the project as planned. I hope the second wave of the epidemic expected this autumn will not delay construction works, and the finished facility will be delivered on schedule at the beginning of the second quarter of 2021," said Radosław T. Krochta, President of the Management Board of MLP Group.
