Santander Bank Polska S.A. finances Newport Logistics Fund’s the in Zgierz

Newport Logistics Fund, a fund that invests in warehouse real estate, has secured bank financing for an ongoing logistics centre project in Lućmierz near Zgierz. Santander Bank Polska S.A. has supported the development of the two-building complex with a total area of 33,500 sqm.

Newport Logistics Fund is completing the constructions of first of two buildings within the logistics park in Zgierz. Later this quarter, the 6,300 sq m hall will be used by DPD, one of the largest courier companies in Europe. The cross-dock building will be one of the company’s largest and most modern sorters in the country. Office and staff facilities will also be available to the tenant. The hall will be equipped with a number of sustainable solutions – including a photovoltaic installation and charging stations for electric cars – and will be BREEAM-certified at the Excellent level. Another warehouse developed as part of the complex will occupy more than 27,000 sq m.

– “The logistics park in Zgierz has already attracted DPD, one of the leaders in the courier industry, confirming the huge potential of this location – close to the A2 motorway and the Emilia junction. We are pleased that the attractiveness is also recognised by Santander Bank Polska S.A., which granted a loan for the realisation of this important investment for the region. The support of financial institutions indicates the continuing very strong position of the industrial property market, which is the speciality of the Newport Logistics Fund. This draws favourable prospects for further development in Poland and Europe,” – says Szymon Ostrowski, managing director of the Fund.

Newport Logistics Fund is a Luxembourg-registered fund that operates throughout Europe. It finances, among other things, the development of a 23,400 sq m distribution centre in Almere, near Amsterdam, as well as the construction of a warehouse in the West London region (near London Heathrow), which will occupy 7,500 sq m of space.
