ECE starts international development of logistics properties: Market entry with first logistics project in Poland
ECE expands its activities in the development of logistics properties to the international market and realizes a logistics project in Poland for the first time. With this project, ECE expands its well-established retail real estate business in Poland, which has been managed by its local branch for many years, to the logistics real estate sector.
ECE's first international logistics center is being built in Kąty Wrocławskie, around 25 kilometers from Wrocław and conveniently located directly on the A4 freeway in the direction of Dresden. It will offer a logistics area of around 80,000 m² and will be tailor-made to meet the requirements of future users. Construction is scheduled to start in November 2022 and to be completed in fall 2023.
Dr. Jan Röttgers, Director Logistics & International at ECE Work & Live: "With our market entry in Poland, we are now extending our many years of expertise and our range of services in the planning, development and realization of tailor-made logistics properties to the international market, which offers numerous interesting opportunities for us. Both users and investors will benefit from our decades of experience in the realization of logistics real estate from a single source as well as from our financial strength as a family-owned company."
Leszek Sikora, Regional Head and Managing Director of ECE Poland: "Our entire team is highly motivated and pleased to add another chapter to the success story of ECE Polska with this project and to expand our range of services by a new asset class."
Like all logistics properties developed by ECE, the logistics center in Kąty Wrocławskie is planned and realized along numerous sustainable aspects. These include, among others, energy-efficient planning and implementation of the property, the installation of e-charging and car-sharing stations, bicycle parking spaces as well as the creation of insect-friendly green areas and a sustainable irrigation system. BREEAM certification in the "Excellent" category is being sought.
