GLP announced the development of a new 37,000 sqm logistics centre in Upper Silesia, Poland. The 37,000 sqm unit marks the first phase of development and is part of a scheme to develop over 110,000 sqm of warehouse space in Ledziny, each with direct access to the S1 expressway.

The development comes six months since GLP launched its operations in Central Europe. The company has already leased part of the space in the unit that is due to complete in mid-2021.

The buildings in Lędziny will be developed in line with the GLP Design Standard, with a clear height of 12 meters and increased floor loading capacity (7,5 t/ sqm). They will benefit from sustainability features such as solar-ready rooftops, smart metering systems allowing customers to control utility consumption in real-time, and electric vehicle charging stations. Testament to its sustainability credentials, it will receive a BREAAM “Very Good” certification.

The general contractor of the project is CFE, a company that GLP has already worked with on a built-to-suit facility for Valeo in Skawina.

Bruno Lambrecht, General Manager, CFE, said: “I’m happy that we can once again work with GLP on a state-of-the-art logistics centre. This project aligns perfectly with our sustainability strategy Together We Go Green.”

Marcin Żuchniewicz, Business Development Manager, GLP Poland. “Upper Silesia is one of the most significant logistics and industrial markets in Poland. We recognise its potential and as a result of this we are expanding our offering in the region through a series of upcoming developments.”
