Hines Global Income Trust Expands its Portfolio in Northern Poland

September 24, 2019

(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.”

The logis­tics cen­tre in Pruszcz Gdańs­ki is dis­tin­guished by its excel­lent loca­tion and sta­ble ten­ants. I am very glad this invest­ment marks our pres­ence in the Tri-City logis­tics mar­ket,” said Woj­ciech Rumi­an, Vice Pres­i­dent of the Man­age­ment Board of Hines Polska. 

The sale of the park in Gdańsk is one of the ele­ments of our company’s strat­e­gy focus­ing on major ware­house mar­kets in Poland. We are con­fi­dent that Hines has made a pru­dent invest­ment pur­chase” said
Boże­na Kraw­czyk, Invest­ment Direc­tor for Cen­tral Europe at SEGRO.

Dur­ing the trans­ac­tion Hines was advised by the law firm Lin­klaters, the tax advis­er Cri­do and the tech­ni­cal advis­er DIL Pol­s­ka Bau­man­age­ment Sp. z o.o.
