The 39,000-square-meter last-mile logis­tics facil­i­ty is sit­u­at­ed in an estab­lished indus­tri­al zone sur­round­ing Průmyslová (“Indus­tri­al”) street in Štěr­bo­holy – a well-known and sought-after indus­tri­al area with­in the Prague metro area. East­gate Park’s pre­mier last mile loca­tion ben­e­fits from excel­lent links to the motor­way net­work, allow­ing it to ser­vice 95% of Prague’s pop­u­la­tion with­in a 30-minute dri­ve and mak­ing this project attrac­tive for last-mile logis­tics, e‑commerce and par­cel deliv­ery occupiers.

The Czech Repub­lic is prov­ing to be an impor­tant and grow­ing mar­ket for indus­tri­al ten­ants,” said Mietek Godzisz, senior man­ag­ing direc­tor in the Hines Prague Office. We have strong con­vic­tion about future growth here. East­gate Park is a best-in-class busi­ness park in one of the Czech Republic’s most robust markets.”

David Bouck, direc­tor of the Charn­wood Com­pa­ny and the sell­er of the East­gate Park added, After sev­er­al years of tar­get­ed invest­ment and upgrades, as well as the recent con­struc­tion of over 7,000 square meters of new stor­age and flex build­ings, we have con­vert­ed the project into an excep­tion­al­ly well locat­ed last-mile prop­er­ty. I am pleased that Hines Glob­al has cho­sen this asset to be their invest­ment into the grow­ing Czech indus­tri­al market.”

Omar Thowfeek, man­ag­ing direc­tor, invest­ments of Hines Glob­al, con­clud­ed, The area’s siz­able labor pool for flex and dis­tri­b­u­tion-focused ware­house space, com­bined with the prime loca­tion, make East­gate Park a strong long-term last-mile dis­tri­b­u­tion loca­tion and sol­id addi­tion to the exist­ing Hines Glob­al portfolio.”
