A new inner city warehouse, Gdynia City Logistics, will be built in Gdynia on Północna Street, just 9 km from the city centre, less than 30 minutes drive from the airport and 10 minutes from Gdynia Port. Torus, as part of the diversification of its operations under the name Torus Logistics and in cooperation with BTV Real Estate, has just received a decision on land development conditions.

Gdynia City Logistics will offer approximately 23,500 square metres of logistics and office space. Torus intends to have the centre certified with a BREEAM certificate with a rating of ‘Excellent’. Pro-ecological solutions will ensure energy efficiency and significantly reduce operating costs.
