The new projects respond to expectations from the market, including from the dynamically developing e-commerce sector, which, as it continues to strengthen its position and to expand even further, needs well located warehouses, also such which are situated within the administrative borders of the largest agglomerations, so as to be able to deliver orders to the end customers as quickly as possible.
Bartłomiej Hofman, Managing Director P3 Logistic Parks in Poland says: “We see a huge potential of the warehouse market in the Mazowieckie region. Market analysts say that nearly ¼ of the warehouse space for the logistics industry is already located here1. The decision to expand our portfolio with the grounds for city logistics has been taken because we are aware of the growing popularity of online orders and the increasing consumer demands regarding delivery times. In this context, it is important to place distribution centres as close to the end customers as possible. The central location of the plots which P3 has purchased, very good infrastructure in their vicinity, and the possibility of reaching over 2.6 million potential end customers residing in the Warsaw agglomeration provide the answer to the needs of the increasing number of our tenants.”
The plots of land which have been added to P3's portfolio are strategically located. The facilities planned there will enable a number of companies to improve the last stage of their supply chains, which increasingly often becomes a decisive factor of their competitive advantage. Locating the investment on two opposite parts of the city will enable serving the entire area of the Warsaw agglomeration and its surroundings. The first of the two parks, P3 Warsaw I, will be built at the southern edge of Warsaw, in the municipality of Lesznowola, about 13 km from the ring road and 8 km from the S8 expressway. The project involves construction of two BTS buildings with a total area of over 80,000 sq m. The buildings will have an above-standard clear height of 12 m and an increased floor load capacity of 7.5 t/sq m.
The area where the P3 Warsaw II park will be built is at ul. Faradaya in Warsaw. This particular area is very well connected to other parts of Warsaw thanks to bus and tram lines and the S8 expressway. The two BTS facilities will have a total area of 24,000 sq m. Their clear height will be 10 m and the floor load capacity will be 5t/sq m. The minimum size of the units available for leasing will be 1,350 sq m.
Both P3 Warsaw I and Warsaw II warehouses will rely on energy-saving solutions, such as LED lighting with DALI automatic control system, water taps with infrared aerators, and charging stations for electric vehicles. All warehouses will have certification in the BREEAM system at the “Very Good” level.
The current portfolio of P3 in the Mazowieckie region already includes properties in such locations as Błonie, Mszczonów, and Grodzisk Mazowiecki.
