Thriving amid the strife

Cemented into Pole position

The total warehouse take-up in the first half of the year in the Polish industrial market hit 3.8 mln sqm, of which 2.2 mln sqm was leased in the second quarter. Cushman & Wakefield publishes its key findings on the current warehouse market in Poland in its latest report, as well as some predictions for the future.


Value Beyond Real Estate

As the logistics market looks forward to continued growth, analysts are forecasting a rosy future. ‘Eurobuild CEE’ spoke to Paweł Sapek, the head of Prologis for Central Europe, about the warehouses of the future.


A holistic approach to ESG

As one of the world’s largest logistics real estate companies, Prologis understands its responsibility to customers, the environment, and local communities. A drive to meet ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals comes both from teams of dedicated professionals running its operations around the world, as well as from customers, for whom ESG targets are a vital consideration. Its refusal to rest on its laurels has seen Prologis set new ESG goals this year which will bring benefits to customers, employees and communities alike.

Warehouse & industrial

A booming market, an increase in occupier activity

The industrial market has been transforming at a tremendous rate. Although development activity appears to have slowed down somewhat, occupier demand remains strong. All this is set against a background of very low vacancy rates, which are likely to result in a temporary undersupply for some regions. Meanwhile, some developers are ready to take the plunge and build speculatively – according to Jakub Kurek, the industrial and warehouse head of Newmark Polska.


The way, the shape and the form

Segro was one of the pioneers of urban warehousing and in the introduction of sustainability certificates to the sector in Poland. Since it entered the Polish market, much has changed – and is still changing. We spoke to Magdalena Szulc, Segro managing director, Central Europe, on how formats have evolved, where they are going next, and how warehouses should be designed to weather whatever the macroeconomic and geopolitical spheres might have in store for us next.

A carbon-zero plant? It’s possible!

A strong push for energy efficiency, modern heat recovery systems and the use of renewable energy sources, plus a partner that shares Panattoni’s environmental principles and has equally ambitious goals in terms of sustainable development and climate neutrality. And the result of such cooperation could only be the first zero-emission factory for Danfoss Poland, built by Panattoni in Grodzisk Mazowiecki. It is also Danfoss’ first such facility in the world.
