The transactions include a lease renewal for 22,510 square metres and a new lease for 8,325 square metres of additional distribution space.

“Our partnership with arvato Polska began 12 years ago, when the company leased 4,100 square metres of industrial space at Prologis Park Błonie,” said Zbigniew Smyczyński, leasing manager, Prologis Poland. “We are glad that our long-term customer appreciates the strengths of this park, which ensures an easier distribution of goods across the entire Warsaw metropolitan area and access to the nearby ring roads, which connect the north and south regions of the country."

“Due to a dynamic development of current projects as well as acquiring new customers, we have taken a decision to expand within Prologis Park Błonie. Important to us is the quality of the buildings and the location, which, with its easy access, offers proximity to the local workforce”, said Lidia Ratajczak-Kluck, SCM SG Director, arvato Polska.
