European independent real estate investment firm Blackbrook Capital is funding the development of a 45,000sqm logistics facility in Western Poland.

The latest facility will be available for occupation in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Jon Strang, managing director of Blackbrook Capital said: “This is an exciting and rare opportunity for Blackbrook to secure a significant asset in an area that demonstrates compelling fundamentals as a strategic logistics hub.

“In recent years, the industrial market in Poland has seen significant development, with the Wielkopolska region being one of the major contributors. There is a huge supply-demand imbalance in the area, and we look forward to bringing a fresh facility to the market equipped with a highly optimised layout and industry-leading specifications.”

Arvi Luoma, co-founder and CEO of Blackbrook Capital, said: “This project perfectly aligns with our core strategy of investing in future-proof supply chain infrastructure to meet the growing demand across Europe.

”We look forward to continually expanding our portfolio with high-quality assets, located along strategic logistics corridors, creating stock for the future of global eCommerce, and strengthening European supply chain resilience.”

The project in Poznan marks Blackbrook’s second investment in Poland, following the acquisition of a nearby logistics facility in November 2020.
