Swarzędz, KMC, Rent New Space
Poland's leading furniture manufacturer Swarzędz Meble SA and logistics operator KMC Services have signed lease contracts for new warehouse space. They were both represented by the industrial and warehouse space section of Colliers International Poland. Swarzędz has rented almost 5,500 sq m of modern warehouse space at ProLogis Park Poznań I as of this May. PPP I is a modern logistics park comprising four buildings with total storage and office space of 43,000 sq m. The park offers clients a strategic location, spacious parking lots, wide yards for maneuvering and round-the-clock security. PPP I lies about 15 km west of Poznań city center on the E30 road. This strategic location allows the park to serve the Poznań area as well as the rest of Poland and also Western Europe.

KMC Services chose ProLogis Park Będzin II, renting almost 3,500 sq m of warehouse space. The company will start operating from the new site this October. ProLogis Park Będzin II is a modern distribution center with three buildings offering a total space of 45,000 sq m in Silesia near the A4 freeway (Katowice-Cracow) and the E75 expressway.

Panattoni Builds ŁódĽ Graniczna Park
Panattoni Europe, one of the largest developers of industrial space in Poland and Central Europe, recently officially laid the cornerstone for its new project-Panattoni Park ŁódĽ Graniczna in ŁódĽ, in a ceremony attended by the company's officials, the main tenant and the city authorities.

Though the center is still under construction, most of it (20,000 sq m) has been pre-leased to Recticel, a Belgian corporation that is a leading European producer of polyurethane foam, mattresses and bed frames, with over 100 factories in 26 countries. Polish subsidiary Recticel Komfort Snu Sp. z o.o. will start using the premises as of Nov. 1.

This is Panattoni Europe's second project in ŁódĽ, after Panattoni Park ŁódĽ. Located at 60 Graniczna St., it will be close to the A1 freeway to Piotrków Trybunalski. The location will allow tenants to take advantage of ŁódĽ central location in the country.

"Since we entered the Polish market, the company has implemented a dynamic expansion policy," says Robert Dobrzycki, regional partner for Central and Eastern Europe at Panattoni Europe. "We have finalized many projects and more are under construction. The first quarter was a record one, when we signed Poland's largest contract, for 56,000 sq m at Panattoni Park Stryków and won 30 percent of the market in terms of leased space. We are convinced that the coming months will be just as good."

ProLogis Signs New Lease Contracts
ProLogis, the world's biggest owner, administrator and developer of distribution facilities, has signed lease contracts for over 100,000 sq m of warehouse space in the Warsaw area since the start of the year. Space rented out in the Warsaw area alone accounts for about half the total rented out by the company so far in 2008. Clients holding lease contracts with ProLogis include DHL (22,400 sq m), Gepol PPHU (5,800 sq m), Iron Mountain (10,500 sq m), Overbruck Polska (5,130 sq m), Rhenus Fastrack (12,900 sq m), SigmaKalon Deco (5,200 sq m) and Stalgast (12,700 sq m). ProLogis' portfolio in the area includes nine distribution centers: three in Warsaw, two in Błonie as well as parks in Nadarzyn, Teresin, Sochaczew and Janki; after expansion, together they will offer over 1 million sq m of warehouse space.

"The Warsaw area is Poland's biggest industrial real estate market," says Maciej Madejak, vice-president of ProLogis, "as well as being the country's most important business and logistics center. In response to market demand, we are expanding our parks. Before the end of this year, new buildings with 40,200 sq m of space will be available at ProLogis Park Warsaw II on Staniewicka Street, another 55,000 sq m at ProLogis Park Janki and 121,900 sq m at ProLogis Park Sochaczew. In addition, at the start of 2009 we will complete the first two buildings of a new distribution center called ProLogis Park Błonie II."
