A new point on the map of warehouse investments

Kielce has become a new key point on the map of warehouse investments. Experts praise its convenient location at the intersection of the S7 and S74 expressways.

“In Kielce, we have sole ownership of land intended for logistics, warehouse and industrial purposes. The land was formerly occupied by a brewery belonging to Kompania Piwowarska,” says Artur Hajderwoicz, the Director for Urban Development and Regeneration in the City of Kielce, interviewed by Propertynews.pl.

Hajderowicz explains that because of its advantages and good transport connections, the 100 ha land is very attractive to businesses. The city is currently looking for an investor.

Kielce’s potential

JLL experts list Kielce among the most promising cities. What attracts investors there? “Its location, obviously. Kielce is situated near the intersection of the S7 and S74 expressways,” says Tomasz Mika, National Director, JLL, in an interview with warehousefinder.pl.

The expert emphasises that logistics and manufacturing companies are increasingly taking into account the availability of skilled workforce. “A huge advantage of cities such as Kielce is the large number of people who are ready to take up work, which, combined with the limited competition from other players, gives employers better access to potential employees,” says Mika.

As announced by Panattoni Europe in March 2017, Kielce is one of five new markets to which the developer intends to expand in 2017 and 2018.

According to Gazeta Wyborcza, the mayor of Kielce has already launched the environmental permit procedure for the construction of a “warehouse and production complex with ancillary facilities” at Malików Street. Panattoni Park Kielce, which will be built there, will comprise three industrial and warehouse buildings with a total area of over 75,000 sqm.
