The positive run for the European logistics and warehouse market continues and will continue. There is potential for further growth over the coming months as confirmed not only by the increasing number of schemes under construction and those fully leased, but also by the extremely stable foundations for expansion of the sector. The trust shown in the domestic market by investors is also of importance here. The above and numerous other factors affecting warehouse property investments were topics for discussion at the “Pan-European Logistics Breakfast” organized by BNP Paribas Real Estate in London.
During my presence on the warehouse market spanning more than 16 years now I was able to witness a significant change as regards perception of Poland: from a location of secondary importance we have become one of the most dynamically growing logistics destinations in Europe. The introduction of sustainable solutions in warehouse properties is a proof that Poland is transforming itself from a location that used to be attractive mainly due to the costs involved to a place where the high technical standard of properties comes first along with the still relatively low operating costs
