The green logistics complex VisionPark in Bratislava received the permit for construction at the end of August. The permit is for three halls with 16,000 sqm area. The developer of the new logistics park based on sustainable principles is DOAS and the leasing agent is 108 Agency Slovakia.

At the end of August 2022, the construction permit for the VisionPark Bratislava project was issued. A timeless logistics park with a green vision, advanced technologies, and sustainable principles is growing in Bratislava. Warehouses, light industrial production, and administrative premises will be located in modern halls near the centre.

The VisionPark project combines ecology, sustainability and, above all, a "green" future. Logistics parks are mostly a thorn in the side of the local community because they do not correspond aesthetically with the surroundings. VisionPark crosses the threshold of the industrial stereotype and enters the era of green logistics parks that not only serve investors but also help fulfil the goals of customers and employees. The result is to create a prosperous community under one roof, which improves the surroundings and takes care of the environment with its activity.

"We want to be an inspiration for the reconstruction of the surrounding parks, which today show a significant stage of wear and tear. The transformation of classic industrial buildings into healthy projects full of life and the effective use of solar energy and rainwater will lighten our planet and at the same time enrich the world of industrial buildings with new innovative solutions," adds Tomáš Šesták, executive director of DOAS.

VisionPark transforms solar energy through photovoltaics into electrical energy, and through the distributor, green energy reaches back to the customers. Retained rainwater that remains in the environment is also used. The use of wind is in the process of being solved, it can contribute to energy self-sufficiency. With a suitable combination of these technologies, the park's carbon footprint can be close to 0.

Behind this interesting project is the development company DOAS with a long tradition of successfully implementing constructions. A building permit was issued for the construction of three halls A, B, and C with an area of more than 16,000 sqm. The units are flexible and the smallest of them for lease starting from 780 sqm up to 8,000 sqm. The park is located in Žabí Majer, with good accessibility to the city centre and near the D1 and D4 highway exits.

"In the last quarter, we noticed a higher demand for smaller storage units from 500 up to 1,000 sqm in Bratislava and its surroundings. Small units have been in short supply on the commercial real estate market for a long time. The response to this type of demand is the trend of building halls suitable for city logistics, such as VisionPark. After Bratislava, similar projects will soon be constructed in other cities such as Senec, Trnava and Nitra," adds Dominika Ukropcová, Research Analyst from the real estate consulting company 108 AGENCY Slovakia, which leases the park exclusively.
