MLP Group is embarking on a project to develop its second logistics park within the Łódź urban area. MLP Business Park Łódź will deliver more than 30,000 sqm of city logistics space, some of it designated for light manufacturing. The project will undergo the BREEAM New Construction certification of ‘Excellent’. The first facilities are expected to be available for occupancy by mid-2024.

MLP Group is solidifying its presence in central Poland with the addition of yet another logistics park, MLP Business Park Łódź, to be developed within the Łódź urban area, marking the developer’s second investment in the city. Space offered in the new project will be tailored primarily for urban logistics and light manufacturing operations. The development will begin on a speculative basis, i.e. without pre-lease contracts. The business park will ultimately offer a total of about 30,400 sqm of cutting-edge space, of which 26,600 sqm will accommodate warehouse units, while 3,800 sqm will contain comfortable offices and staff amenity areas. In total, the complex will consist of three warehouse facilities, to be gradually delivered to occupants over the second and third quarters of 2024. The role of the general contractor has been entrusted to BIn - Biuro Inżynierskie.

“MLP Business Park Łódź is our newest project in the City Logistics category. We are attuned to the strong demand for contemporary spaces, strategically located in urban areas to meet the needs of city logistics, e-commerce services, and light manufacturing. While we embark on this project on a speculative basis, we are confident of its rapid commercialisation. The facilities on offer will feature modern warehouse modules, starting at 1,600 sqm, and well-appointed office spaces. This new project will significantly bolster MLP Group’s presence in central Poland as our second development in the city of Łódź. We are committed to incorporating eco-friendly solutions throughout the construction process and optimising occupier comfort through a wide range of functionalities”, said Agnieszka Góźdź, Member of the Management Board, Chief Development Officer, MLP Group S.A.

“The confidence placed in us by MLP Group to serve again as the general contractor is a testament to the successful collaborations we have had in the past. As a construction firm we are always happy to be part of projects to deliver logistics facilities meeting the highest environmental standards. The new development in Łódź is a significant undertaking, to be carried out in three phases. As with all our prior projects, we are focused on meeting every requirement set forth by the project owner and adhering to the established timelines”, said Jacek Rasz, Member of the Management Board, BIn - Biuro Inżynierskie.

MLP Group is committed to achieving the BREEAM New Construction certification of ‘Excellent’ for the facilities. In pursuit of this goal, the developer intends to incorporate a solar photovoltaic system and install charging stations for electric vehicles. Moreover, a substantial portion (approximately 30%) of the land developed with the logistics park will be dedicated to green spaces and a retention pond. To encourage eco-friendly commuting, more than 550 bicycle parking spaces have been planned.

MLP Business Park Łódź is a new logistics park, to be developed on a land plot with an area of 7.6 ha, which will ultimately offer a total of 30,400 sqm of space. Its standout features include an excellent location, with convenient access to public transport stops in close proximity. Situated just 10 km from the Łódź city centre, the park will also enjoy connectivity to major urban areas via an extensive road network. It will be located a mere 4 km from the A1 highway (Łódź East junction), and only 25 km from the A2 highway (Łódź North junction). Additionally, the S14 expressway, running along the western side of the city, is just 15 km away, with the same distance between the park and the local airport.
