Prologis has begun construction of two build-to-suit (BTS) facilities totalling 40,000 square meters in Prologis Park Wrocław IV.

The developments comprise:

  • 20,300 square meters for Jotul Polska, a new subsidiary of Norwegian company Jøtul AS, one of the world’s oldest manufacturers of stoves and fireplaces. The building’s above-average depth of over 130 meters will optimize the processes and layout of the production line for assembling, painting and enamelling of fireplaces. In addition to the singular layout, the building will feature compressors, a special ventilation system and additional lighting. Completion of the project is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019. The transaction was facilitated by CBRE.
  • 18,300 square meters for long-term Prologis customer Yusen Logistics, a global logistics company offering complete end-to-end supply chain solutions. Their scope covers all modes of transportation, including international freight forwarding, warehousing, origin cargo management, project cargo and tailored supply chain solution development and management. The building is specifically designed to accommodate the customer’s processes, especially in terms of effective use of space for racking which has been completely optimised for their operation. Improvements include above-average building depth of over 130 meters; additional lighting in the loading area; LED lighting throughout the entire building; a battery room and shelter for pallets; as well as a truck weighbridge. Completion of the project is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019. JLL brokered the lease expansion.

Like all the other Prologis facilities, the new buildings will be equipped with online solutions that support the management and servicing of the property. These include smart metering system which will allow the customers to remotely access and monitor all utility meters in the buildings.

Prologis Park Wrocław IV is located in Kąty Wrocławskie, 35 kilometres from downtown Wrocław and 13 kilometres from the Bielany junction. Wrocław’s western ring road also passes by the distribution centre. Upon completion of the two developments, the park – consisting of three buildings totalling 50,000 square meters – will be fully developed.
