GLP has closed an acquisition contract for a 22.3 ha plot in Szigetszentmiklós, next to its existing Sziget Logistics Centre, the larger part of which has already been let to Fiege Group. GLP has simultaneously obtained an occupancy permit for the first building, while two further units are under construction. The two phases of the project will comprise more than 150,000 sq m of warehouse space.
Less than one year since construction commenced, the first 23,000 sq m facility of Sziget Logistics Centre has obtained its occupancy permit. This building, along with a 22,000 sq m extension, was previously let to one single client, Fiege Group, a leading European logistics company specialising in efficient supply chain solutions.
The second phase of the first building is set to be completed by March, whilst the construction of a separate building is expected to be completed by September 2022. On completion, Sziget will comprise approximately 70,000 sq m of logistics space.
Sziget Logistics Centre is GLP’s first development in Hungary and introduces the GLP Design Standard to the Hungarian market. This is said to comprise a technical specification focused on efficient use of storage space, enhanced layouts, and cost savings through lower energy consumption. An increased clear height of 12 m offers more efficient storage, while an improved floor load capacity allows the use of heavy vehicles or machinery.
GLP’s Design Standard also aims to put significant emphasis on ESG matters, primarily sustainability, CO2 reduction, wellbeing, and biodiversity. These goals are said to be achieved via improved thermal insulation, LED lighting, energy efficient heating systems, extended use of natural light, and smart metering, amongst others. The facilities aim to be easily accessed by public transport, while e-car users can charge their vehicles at EV chargers.
