Prologis continues to support the growth of Agata, a big-box retailer of furniture and interior design accessories, by developing build-to-suit (BTS) logistics facilities centrally located in Poland. The initial 456,000 square foot BTS facility at the former Prologis Park Piotrków II was completed in the fourth quarter of 2016.* A new BTS facility of 112,000 square feet was completed in the third quarter of 2018.
“The building was designed and constructed in line with our guidelines and will serve as our central distribution facility,” said Grzegorz Ćwik, vice president, Agata. “We are also pleased with the above-market-specification fire suppression solution that Prologis proposed.”
The new Class-A building has cutting-edge sustainability features, such as energy-efficient LED lighting fitted to assembly beams to allow a flexible floor plan and the latest smart meter technology, which provides monitoring and analytics that allow the customer to manage and minimize energy costs.
“Demand for high-quality logistics real estate in Central Poland continues to increase,” said Paweł Sapek, senior vice president and country manager, Prologis Poland. “We wish Agata great success at their new facility in Piotrków, a site that allows for future growth.”
The logistics complex currently totals 926,000 square feet. The BTS facilities are on the outskirts of Piotrkow Trybunalski, 40 kilometers from Łódź, the capital of the Central Poland market. The park sits at the intersection of two main roads: the A1/E75 motorway, which links northern and southern Poland, and the 8/E67 expressway, which connects Prague, the Silesian Agglomeration, Warsaw, Bialystok and Vilnius.
With a presence in four Central and Eastern European countries, Prologis is a leading provider of distribution facilities in the region.
