The expansion of the modern park in Zielona Góra is part of the strategic development of Accolade along the western border of Poland, where we are also present in Goleniów, Szczecin, Gorzów Wielkopolski and Legnica. The total amount of investment into the development of the Zielona Góra complex is worth more than EUR 94 million and to this date offers around 1 000 jobs. The current expansion will add about 650 more and will bring another strengthening to the local economic development.
“The construction of the warehouse complex in Zielona Góra started in 2017 and it was one of the first Accolade investments in Poland and the first A-class multi-let park in the city. Over the next years, it developed dynamically, offering space for tenants from the light production, logistic, and e-commerce industry. At present, the park in Zielona Góra, with a planned target area of over 138,000 sq m, is the second-largest park in our portfolio in Poland, and it is 100% leased,” comments Michał Białas, Country Head of Accolade Poland
“DHL Supply Chain develops dynamically in Poland - Zielona Góra is another location, after Szczecin that we gain thanks to cooperation with Accolade, thus increasing our share in the warehouse space offered by the company in Poland to nearly 80,000 sq m. The rapid development of the logistics industry means that we are looking for modern, high-quality projects in good locations, with guaranteed access to developed infrastructure and growth potential in the future. The park in Zielona Góra meets these criteria,” says Monika Duda, Managing Director Poland DHL Supply Chain.
Lubuskie is a relatively young warehouse market in Poland. In recent years, the region has experienced increased interest from investors and tenants who are looking for a convenient location to serve customers from CEE and Western Europe. *Total stocks of the warehouse market in the Lubuskie Voivodeship at the end of 2020 increased by 47,000 sq m and amounted to 386,500 sq m (+ 13,84% y / y) *.
The main advantage of the park is the great location on the city bypass connected to the S3 expressway leading through the whole of Poland and towards other European markets. The area also offers an excellent background of support for investors and further business growth through the Kostrzyn - Słubice Special Economic Zone, which is the fastest developing polish special economic zone, both financially and territorially. Last but not least, tenants can draw on a sufficiently qualified workforce thanks to a direct connection to the scientific and technical campus of the Zielona Góra University
“The new building aspirates to high BREEAM certification of sustainability level and will have several ecological solutions mainly focused on high-saving energy systems and great water management. We also focus on developing green areas around the premises. In this case represented by landscaping with trees, shrubs, and wildflower meadows to enrich the ecosystem surrounding the facility,” added Michał Białas.
“Accolade Holding, a.s. provides top-of-the-class infrastructure for business in Europe. Most of its clients are global tenants in the sectors of e-commerce, processing and logistics. In the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany and Slovakia it owns a network of 29 industrial parks with BREEAM certification, which is a guarantee of a sustainable and environmentally-friendly approach. In the future it is planning to build a test site for the development and certification of self-driving vehicles. In more than nine years of its existence the company has created a portfolio of commercial real estates with an area exceeding 1.8 million m², worth almost EUR 1.219 billion. It does not only invest in the development of new projects but also in the redevelopment of neglected brownfields. In 2020 their share in our portfolio has grown to 37%. The total area of redeveloped sites is approximately 670,000 m2. In 2014 the Group set up a fund of leading industrial real estates called Accolade Fund Sicav, open to investments by qualified investors who can therefore participate in the development of modern industry. In 2017 the Group bought the operator of the second busiest airport in the Czech Republic, Brno-Tuřany. Accolade’s priorities are dynamic growth and sustainable development. These are some of the reasons why the Group became the fastest-growing company in the Czech Republic in 2019, according to the prestigious ranking of Financial Times. In 2020 the Group was awarded the BREEAM sustainability certification at the “Outstanding” level for investments into new environmentally-friendly solutions in the sector of industrial real estates. One of the buildings in the redeveloped site of the Cheb engineering plant received a record-high score and became the most environmentally-friendly industrial building in the world. In the future Accolade is planning to build a test site for the development and certification of self-driving vehicles, which would be used as a research and development centre and would attract the biggest talent in the field. For several years the Group has supported sheltered housing and social therapy workshops of the non-profit organization Mela as well as projects in science (Neuron Awards), culture (Karlovy Vary International Film Festival) and sports (Česká spořitelna-Accolade Cycling Team), and participates in the development of its communities in cooperation with regional governments.
