White Star Logistics will build an industrial and logistics park in Toruń

The new industrial and logistics center will be built in the eastern part of Toruń in the immediate vicinity of the S10 expressway, which is being gradually modernized. The investment will be carried out in two stages: the first hall will have an area of 27,186 m2, and hall B – 21,426 m2, i.e. almost 50,000 sqm in total. Sqm.

“Toruń is currently developing very quickly, and the advantage of the city is certainly the access to qualified employees. The town hall has created the Toruń-Wschód investment and logistics zone there, where several large logistics operators are already operating and production projects are being developed. When creating our projects, we want to focus on both mature markets and those with the greatest development prospects, hence the decision to invest in Toruń. This region has a chance to soon become one of the key business locations, especially since cooperation with the local administration makes the region an attractive place for such initiatives,” says Bartosz Szewczyk, Managing Partner at White Star Real Estate.

The advantage of the investment is its excellent location, which provides employees with efficient access to the site, which is crucial for tenants of similar facilities. The area is well connected with the city – there are tram and bus stops nearby, as well as production facilities for many industries. In turn, the A1 motorway junction is located approx. 4 km from the park.

Toruń is a link between Northern and Central Poland. In addition, the most important assets of the city and the region include strong industrialization, a large number of highly qualified employees, a significant supply of graduates and students, as well as high economic activity. Toruń, along with the oldest, largest and best public university in northern Poland, i.e. the Nicolaus Copernicus University, place the city among the top academic centers, which translates into one of the highest rates in Poland in terms of the number of students and graduates supplying the labor market. Toruń has 176.7 thousand inhabitants. inhabitants, and almost 30% of Toruń’s inhabitants aged 25-29, have higher education.

As in the case of the investments in Raszyn and Nowy Konik, the logistics park in Toruń will combine BIG BOX areas and small modules typical for logistics and urban production (SBU – Small Business Unit), in which an important part will be office facilities.

“We are seeing a constantly growing demand for warehouse and production space, especially in urban and suburban locations. We want the White Star Logistics platform to be distinguished by well-thought-out locations that are well connected to expressways and motorways, but which can also be easily reached by employees by public transport. We also focus on ecological solutions: photovoltaic panels, systems that allow for the reuse of water and reduction of electricity consumption, as well as charging stations for electric vehicles,” adds Bartosz Szewczyk.

The White Star Logistics strategy assumes the creation of a network of modern logistics centers in the most desirable places in Poland. All buildings that are being built as part of the project will have environmental certificates in the BREEAM system at the level of at least very good. In the first 3 years, White Star Logistics intends to implement eight warehouse projects in Poland with a total target area of over 500,000 sqm. m2. The budget of these projects is to amount to 350 million EUR.
