Goodman Group has signed a lease extension with Gefco Česká republika s.r.o., on behalf of Goodman European Logistics Fund (GELF) for 8,000 sqm of warehouse, mezzanine and office space at Goodman Jažlovice Logistics Centre, in Prague.
Jakub Pelikan, Country Manager Czech Republic and Slovakia said: “We are delighted to sign this latest leasing agreement with Gefco, a European leader in automotive logistics and a world leader in industrial logistics. The lease extension reflects the customer’s focus on a high quality warehouse, which is a key feature of the assets in the GELF portfolio. We are also pleased to maintain the 100% occupancy of our entire portfolio in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.”
GELF’s high quality portfolio is attractive to customers due to the undersupply of Class A warehouse space in prime locations. GELF’s high quality product is one of the reasons that the portfolio maintains its 98% occupancy rate across continental Europe.
The warehouse is part of Goodman’s Jažlovice Logistics Centre, which comprises a total of 25,000 sqm warehouse space. It is strategically located in a prominent logistics hub at the crossroads of the Prague by-pass and the D1 motorway. The location is ideal for logistics companies requiring good access to Prague, Brno, Bratislava and Vienna, as well as to Pilsen and the northwest of the Czech Republic.
In November 2012, Goodman Czech Republic won the ‘best warehouse/logistics development of the year’ award at the 2012 CIJ Awards for its SAS project in Mlada Boleslav.
Goodman was advised by Cushman & Wakefield in this transaction.
