Goodman has begun construction of a modern warehouse of over 32,000 sqm for BMW Group in Świecko, Poland. The facility will be a logistics centre for replacement parts to serve the Polish and East German market. It will be Goodman’s first development for BMW Group in Poland, and its fourth project for the automotive giant in Continental Europe.
BMW Group will relocate and expand its spare parts business to Świecko, a strategic location from which to access the Polish and East German market. The new, expanded facility is located 6 km from the Polish-German border and only 110 km from Berlin, where the BMW Group production plant is located. BMW Group is scheduled to take occupancy in Q2 2018.
The warehouse answers to the needs of a modern automotive logistics facility: it will be built in compliance with FM Global fire protection standards, feature LED lighting in both the office and warehouse space, offer hazardous goods and heavily secured storage as well as ample canopy space.
JLL experts advised on the lease transaction. The development also received support from the Kostrzyn-Slubice special economic Zone (K-S SSE), which offered a prime real estate location for the facility.
