CTP has completed the acquisition of 27.5 hectares of land close to Belgrade city centre and is moving plans forward to deve-lop CTPark Belgrade Centre, which will become Serbia’s largest logistics and technology facility to date with over 130,000m² of gross lettable area. The new CTPark will be strategically located 6 km from Belgrade’s city centre, 2 km from New Belgrade, and 5 km from Airport Belgrade.
Vlatko Djuricek, CTP’s Country Head, who secured the deal and lead the business discussions, confirms that the situation on the Serbian market is similar to other CEE markets where logistics stock is significantly lower than in the West, creating a short supply of warehouse and other industrial space: “Logistics property is in massive demand due to booming e-commerce and there is an undersupply of available space on the Serbian market. Over 80% of CTP's new business is done with our existing 700 clients and several of those are now ready to expand. CTP Belgrade Centre will be constructed in two years, but 40% of the space is already pre-leased to our tenant Tehnomanija.”
Tehnomanija, a leading retail and e-commerce consumer electronics chain and CTP’s long-term tenant at CTPark Belgrade North (currently largest logistics park in Serbia), has preleased 50,000m² in the new park, with CTP starting the construction next year and a handover set for Q1 2023.
