7R to invest into SBU segment

POLAND Developer 7R has plans to set up a network of small business unit (SBU) warehouses across Poland under the name of 7R City Flex.

It is to include over a dozen buildings located close to city centres. The developer has bought six sites so far, including one in Siemianowice Śląskie, where it has started construction work. In Szczecin and Łódź it is planning to start building this year. Some pre-leases were signed in Gdańsk just two weeks after the purchase of the plot. The first openings are expected this Autumn. Altogether the network will have locations in Gdańsk, Szczecin, Warsaw, Łódź, Katowice, Kraków, Wrocław, Poznań, Rzeszów, Kielce, Częstochowa, Białystok, Bydgoszcz and Gdynia.

7R is to develop buildings with areas ranging from 8,000 to 15,000 sqm including warehouse space, as well as servicing areas, commercial and exhibition spaces and office space. The new facilities will also allow for light manufacturing. The smallest units available will be 900 sqm. All the warehouses are also to be BREEAM-certified. Tenants will be able to sign a single lease agreement covering several warehouses in different locations as part of the City Flex programme.

“We are the first property development company in Poland to introduce this comprehensive solution for tenants looking for smaller spaces suited to their needs and located in easily accessible urban areas. When tenants decide to cooperate with us in multiple locations, they will get the same high technical standards as in all our facilities, country-wide servicing and one tech team which will always be there to help with any issue at hand. With our latest service, tenants save time and have a guarantee of top-quality service,” says Bartłomiej Krawiecki, a board member of 7R.
