Mall.cz, an online consumer goods and electronics store, will relocate to a new customized facility with mezzanine floors, a gallery and bespoke state-of-the-art technology. Other features include 12.5-metre clear height, a superflat floor, strip skylights, an energy consumption monitoring system, air conditioning and electrically powered exterior sun blinds.
“Prologis is excited to play a key role in the development of e-commerce throughout the region,” said Martin Polak, senior vice president, country manager, Prologis Czech Republic and Slovakia. “This agreement reflects a trend in e-commerce for specialized logistics facilities that can meet the growing demand for online goods and services.”
Prologis Park Prague-Jirny comprises 212,000 square metres with the potential for an additional 120,000 square metres. The park, which is 97-percent leased, is 20 kilometres east of Prague with direct access to the D11 motorway for efficient distribution to local markets and neighboring countries.
“Our decision to move to a new distribution centre was based on driving profitability and serving our customers in a timely manner,” said Oldrich Petranek, International Operations Director, Mall.cz. “We needed a prime location and highly advanced, tailored distribution space. Prologis Park Prague-Jirny offers both.”
DTZ real estate agency facilitated the transaction.
Prologis owns and manages a portfolio of more than 1.2 million square metres of logistics and distribution space in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. With its active engagement in five countries across the region (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania) and a portfolio of more than 4.1 million square metres, Prologis is the leading provider of distribution facilities in Central and Eastern Europe (as of 30 September 2014).
