One of the leading online e-commerce players, offering in excess of 250 000 products from more than a thousand different brands, will take up 32 500 sqm of space in the P3 Błonie logistics park near Warsaw. BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland advisors supported the company on an exclusivity basis in the search for a suitable location and throughout the lease process. The transaction brought the share of lease transactions finalized by the agency in the total number of transactions completed on Warsaw’s market to 52%, thus putting BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland in the position of regional leader. The total volume of space leased with the involvement of the Logistics and Industrial Department in Q3 only has increased to 120 000 sqm.
The growth of our business in Poland led to increased demand for warehouse space. We were looking for a new scheme that would have the capacity to handle the operations of the entire online store. Our close collaboration with BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland enabled us to choose the best option to facilitate further dynamic growth of our organization. It additionally meant that the entire process was carried out in an extremely efficient manner with a focus on the merits of the project, from an analysis of our needs and potential locations through to support in lease negotiations. As a result, we were able to proceed with the change of location within the timeframe set by us
Tomasz Habigier, Operations Manager at eMAG
We are actively monitoring the direction in which the market is expanding, and are planning our growth in a way that would enable us to best address the needs of clients and the projects that we are involved in. We are investing in people and skills in Poland and the Czech Republic, where over the past few months we have succeeded in establishing a strong team. Our support for eMAG in the search for and move to the new location will enable the company to further grow on the market. The key focus points in the project were coherent collaboration, analysis of needs, potential locations and the growth directions for an organization operating within the rapidly developing, and thus highly competitive, e-commerce sector
