Prologis has signed one of the largest leasing transactions in Europe this year. Long-term partner EURO-net will lease 160,000 square meters at Prologis Park Janki.

EURO-net – the owner of the nationwide retail chain RTV EURO AGD – choose this park, located only 15 kilometres from the centre of Warsaw and 14 kilometres from Okęcie Airport, making it the company’s distribution centre for both traditional retail and e-commerce.

This transaction includes the construction of two build-to-suit (BTS) facilities totalling 125,000 square meters and the renewal of the existing warehouse lease agreement.

This investment for EURO-net will be implemented on a 24-hectare plot that is fully owned by Prologis. An area on such a scale will enable the company to grow further within the confines of the same logistics park.

The facility will offer 820 parking spaces for passenger cars, 74 for trucks, four bicycle shelters and four charging stations for electric vehicles.

The loading dock area was designed to make loading and unloading easier: the first row of pillars was moved back and the whole area additionally lit with artificial lighting of 300 lx and 5% daylight. Double entry and exit for trucks and separate points dedicated for passenger cars as well as turnstiles for pedestrians will significantly improve traffic and increase safety for employees.

As with every Prologis facility in Poland, the new buildings will be equipped with the most up-to-date solutions to fully support facility management and maintenance. These include a smart metering system that enables customers to remotely view and monitor utility consumption in the facilities, as well as systems for remote technical support of the buildings and automatic license plate reader systems.
