(WARSAW, POLAND) Hines, the international real estate firm, is pleased to announce Hines Global Income Trust, Inc. (“Hines Global”) has acquired a modern logistics park with an area of over 30,000 square meters near Gdańsk. The property, purchased on September 24, 2019 from the investment platform The SEGRO European Logistics Partnership (“SELP”), will be managed by Hines Polska.
The logistics centre consists of two high-class warehouse buildings with a total area of 32,237 square meters. The buildings were constructed in 2013 and 2015, and are fully leased to two tenants, which utilize the location to service the Tri-City area. Żabka Polska, the largest chain of small convenience stores in Poland, occupies 25,500 square meters of building space. The remaining area is leased to DB Schenker, a German global leading logistics provider specialising in comprehensive supply chain management offering not only warehousing, but also freight forwarding and transport solutions.
The investment is located in Pruszcz Gdański, in the vicinity of the Rusocin junction, providing direct access to the Tri-City ring road and A1 Motorway. The property is only 11 km away from the Gdańsk city center.
Sherri Schugart, Chief Executive Officer of Hines Global, added: “Hines Global Income Trust is excited about entering the Polish logistics market, gaining access to a strategic distribution node, and expanding our Pan-European warehouse portfolio.”
