The largest speculative warehouse in Prologis' history - is under construction at Prologis Park Wroclaw III
The building under construction in Wroclaw is a state-of-the-art warehouse and production facility. The investor stresses that it will be the speculative warehouse of the year, and the largest speculative warehouse in the history of the US company Prologis. The giant hall will be built at Prologis Park Wrocław III near the airport and the Wroclaw Motorway Bypass (AOW).
- A speculative warehouse is one that has no pre-signed leases and is built for general market demand. Its opposite are so-called 'tailor-made' warehouse developments (BTS - build to suit), i.e. built to meet the needs of a specific customer.
The newest Prologis warehouse will be 12 meters high, with reinforced floor bearing capacity and increased insulation of the hall's walls and roof. Like all newly constructed Prologis buildings, it will be BREEAM accredited (this is the leading standard for assessing sustainable construction). Construction is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023.
Our new investment confirms that nothing is impossible for Prologis, and that limitations do not exist. Like all industrial parks, Prologis Park Wroclaw III meets the needs of today's supply chains. To meet the needs of customers and their employees, we create our parks to operate as vibrant, highly functional office and warehouse facilities. When we build our logistics centers, we design them with the entire community in mind, matching them to the area and the local landscape
Marcin Czerniewski, Development Manager at Prologis.
Currently, Prologis Park Wrocław III consists of five buildings with a total area of 137,000 sqm. Customers of this logistics park include companies such as: Acer, Deichmann, DSV, Farutex, Max Fliz, Neuca, Selena and Truvant.
Huge demand for powerful warehouses and logistics parks in Wroclaw
More than 600,000 square meters of modern warehouses are currently under construction in Lower Silesia. Almost two-thirds of them, developers are building in Wroclaw and the immediate vicinity. Lower Silesian halls are primarily awaited by tenants from the e-commerce and logistics sectors. Powerful warehouses in the region are being built by Panattoni, Hillwood and GLP. And it doesn't stop there, as more developers are already lining up with new investments. New investments, means a lot of new jobs.
Powerful warehouses in the region are being built by such giants as - Panattoni, Hillwood and GLP. Most projects currently under construction will be completed in the second half of this year or early 2023.
The completion of the first building within GLP Wrocław V Logistics Centre was announced in June 2022. Another 41,000-square-meter hall is already under construction, and ultimately, GLP plans to deliver 230,000 square meters to the market through this development.
At the same time, expansions of the existing parks Panattoni Wroclaw Campus 39 (another 44.5 thousand sqm) and Panattoni Park Wroclaw West Gate (30 thousand sqm) are underway in the region. In addition, Panattoni has announced a new project in Lower Silesia in Magnice - Wroclaw Logistics South Hub, with a total area of 247 thousand sqm. The developer will build 120 thousand sqm of space in the first phase.
The largest and most warehouses in Lower Silesia are being built in Wroclaw
Nearly two-thirds of the warehouse space under construction in the province is concentrated in Wroclaw and the surrounding area. Developers are also building warehouses in Walbrzych, Jelenia Gora, Legnica, Boleslawiec or Zgorzelec.
One of the more interesting investments is a joint project by Hillwood Polska and Develia in Malin near Wroclaw. The investment will be carried out in at least four stages and will deliver a minimum of 400,000 sqm to the market. According to the announcement, it will be the largest logistics park in the region. Another freshly announced investment is a P3 project to be built in Katy Wrocławskie - the developer plans to build warehouses with a total area of almost 175 thousand sqm.

It doesn't stop there. Developers 7R, DL Invest, LCube, PROPCO and MLP Group have also secured land in the province for new investments and expansions.
Wroclaw and the Wroclaw agglomeration is a powerful logistics and warehouse hub
The Lower Silesia region is the fourth warehouse market in Poland, with a total stock of nearly 3.15 million sqm, or more than 12 percent of the country's total modern industrial and warehouse space.
Who employers are most often looking for in the warehouse industry
Due to the rapid growth of the industrial-warehouse market in Wroclaw and the Wroclaw agglomeration, employers are most in need of candidates for so-called "grey-collar" positions, i.e. skilled production workers who have a "specific trade in hand" but are not engineers.
Welders, mechanics, electricians and electro-mechanics, among others, are on the list of the most sought-after workers. At the same time, these are the roles that pose the greatest recruitment difficulties due to the shortage of these workers in the market.
