Prologis announced that it has begun development of a 21,000 square metre speculative facility at Prologis Park Budapest-Sziget. This will be the first speculative logistics building in the Hungarian market since 2008. Completion is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
The new facility, Building 7, will include a pioneering docking system with 46 docks and three drive–in gates. It will reflect Prologis’ commitment to environmental stewardship by guaranteeing energy efficiency and cost-effective operations.
“In addition to the increasing rents at Prologis Park Budapest-Sziget, 98 percent occupancy of our Hungarian portfolio and high customer retention rate together give us the confidence to carry out this development”, said László Kemenes, senior vice president and country manager, Prologis Hungary.
Prologis Park Budapest-Sziget currently comprises six buildings totalling 128,000 square metres of industrial space with the capacity for 15,000 square metres of additional development. The park is located in the industrial zone of Szigetszentmiklós, in a submarket of Budapest, which provides direct access to the national and international road network via the M0 Budapest ring road.
