Amazon in Gliwice – the largest lease of 2017

POLAND The 146,000 sqm lease by Amazon in Panattoni BTS Gliwice was the largest transaction on the Polish industrial market in 2017.

The top five transactions of last year also include Amazon’s 135,000 sqm BTS lease from Panattoni in Sosnowiec, Zalando’s 124,000 sqm BTS lease from Goodman in Łódź, Castorama’s 102,000 sqm BTS lease from Panattoni in Stryków and white consumer goods producer BSH’s 79,000 sqm lease in the Panattoni Central European Logistics Hub in Łódź.

The total space leased on the Polish industrial market in 2017 was over 3.9 mln sqm, which is the highest transactional volume ever recorded, with e-commerce remaining one of the key drivers of demand.

“Retailers and logistics operators continued to drive the market, together accounting for more than 65 pct of net take-up in 2017, including some excellent e-commerce transactions featuring the likes of Amazon and Zalando. A strong third position was retained by the light manufacturing sector contributing 20 pct of net take-up”, commented Tomasz Olszewski, the head of industrial CEE at JLL. The five markets with the highest growth were the Warsaw Suburbs, Upper Silesia, Szczecin, Central Poland and Poznań, which together accounted for almost 75 pct of newly developed space.
