VGP has begun the construction of the fifth hall of VGP Park Plzeň, in an industrial part of the city’s Bručná district.
The tenants of the new warehouse will include DHL Express (1,113 sq m) and Verhoek Europe (2,170 sq m). Building E, which is expected to be completed in September, is to be constructed to obtain BREEAM ‘Very Good’ certification.
"We always strive to choose strategic locations for our parks, and VGP Park Plzeň, situated in an important commercial and industrial part of the Plzeň region, is no exception. The location has an excellent connection to neighbouring Germany and at the same time is easily accessible by public transport from the centre of Plzeň. The close co‑operation with future tenants DHL Express and Verhoek Europe early in the construction phase enables us to build a hall that is truly ‘tailor-made’ and thus ideal for their specific needs," said Petr Kovařík, VGP’s commercial officer.
The park is situated off the E49 road with access to the D5 motorway. On a site of around 10 ha, VGP comprises almost 50,000 sq m of leasable space suitable for light manufacturing, logistics and related commercial activities. Other tenants include Faiveley Transport Czech, Assa Abloy ES Production, Transtechnik CS, Excell Czech, and Copo Téxtil Portugal.
