The area between Mstětice, Nehvizdy, and Jirny is a strategic location due to its proximity to Prague, the D11 highway and the 611 road. Over the past six years, P3 Prague D11 industrial park has grown there and now the final building has been handed over for use by new occupier, QSL.
A landmark has been achieved at P3 Prague D11, with the leasing of the final premises on the park which began its existence seven years ago as a construction site, in November 2015. The DC1 was the first – and largest – of its eight buildings. As well as serving occupiers, P3 Prague D11 also helps the local community, as its presence acts as a natural barrier which protects nearby residential areas from further construction activity.
Prague D11 is located near exit 8 of the D11 highway, connecting Prague and Hradec Králové in Poland. It is only 4 km from the D10 highway, which leads to Mladá Boleslav and Liberec. The total area of the park comprises 154,523 m2, with large halls ranging from 5,069 m2 to 39,124 m2 in size. An outstanding advantage of the park is its optimal location, only a 20 minute-long drive from the center of Prague and with a train station within walking distance. In addition to being connected to the most important transport routes in East Bohemia, this industrial park offers excellent synergies with the neighboring park, P3 Prague Horní Počernice, situated only a 13-minute drive away.
The first tenant to move into P3 Prague D11 was the logistics company, FM Česká. It uses the premises in the DC1 hall primarily for storing food products, for which it employs refrigeration equipment which P3 installed. The retail chain, LIDL, also occupies an area of 5,000 m² for its operating facilities in the DC1 hall. Only slightly smaller premises of 4,700 m² are leased by the Saint-Gobain company with its automotive business, focused on car glass.
Jan Andrus, Head of Leasing of P3 Logistic Parks in the Czech Republic, said: „The portfolio of tenants in P3 Prague D11 is diverse. In addition to the historic first, we also have the first historic tenant, which is the company ČKD Howden. It moved production to the custom-built sDC7 hall from a plant in Prague’s Vysočany, where it had been based almost since the beginning of the First Czechoslovak Republic in 1918“.
The P3 Prague D11 industrial park is full of innovations designed to exactly fit the needs of clients. For example, the DC4 hall is designed with an focus upon safety for the handling of chemicals and dangerous goods for the tenant, PPG, an American supplier of paints, coatings, and special materials. Nearby in hall DC5, the last free space was filled this year by QLS, which deals with food logistics. It started trial operation in mid-July and began using the premises in earnest during August.
The greenest park in P3’s portfolio
P3 Prague D11 possesses impeccable sustainability credentials, points out Jan Andrus. He said: „P3 Prague D11 is one of our greenest parks in the Czech Republic. As part of the development, we deployed a concept for greenery, selecting the right trees, bushes, and other flora for planting. We also support green facades on the walls of the halls and have planted a butterfly meadow. A local energy distribution system is also installed in the area, thanks to which we can more or less immediately increase the power supply for individual tenants upon request“.
Meanwhile, in hall DC5 is cooling and freezing technology which functions as sustainable heating. The heat generated during the operation of refrigerators and freezers is recycled to heat the concrete floors of the hall, dry storage and administrative areas. Thanks to thermal self-sufficiency, the hall does not need to be connected to a gas source. Among other things, the building aims for the highest level of sustainable building certification, BREEAM Outstanding.
As part of sustainable water management, the park is served by several retention tanks. Waterlogging is also supported by the maintenance concept, which involves meadows and grasses being planted around the park to promote water retention.
P3 Prague D11 industrial park is now at full capacity and is a new and modern environment for the businesses which use its premises. P3 currently owns and manages 16 such sites in the Czech Republic, and is developing three more, in Ostrava, Lovosice, and Myslinca near Pilsen.
