In the first half of this year, Segro purchased a 20-hectare plot in Warsaw’s Młociny district. The company does not disclose the value of the transaction, but at the current prices of industrial land, which within the capital city range between PLN 850-1,200 per sq m, it can be estimated at around PLN 200 million.
The investor plans to build small municipal warehouses here, the so-called SBU, and data centers. In the latter case, it is not a mistake – the company known so far in Poland for warehouse and industrial space also has extensive experience in building space for large server rooms.
The data center segment is such a lucrative niche that both server room operators from the IT industry, specialized developers building such facilities for sale or rent, as well as land developers, i.e. companies preparing land for such unusual investments, can earn money from it. There are already representatives of all these businesses in Poland and when there is a request for proposals from a large operator, the race for contracts begins. Even the outbreak of war in Ukraine only briefly froze investor interest. Currently, they have returned to the market and I have the impression that they are looking for suitable land with redoubled energy – says Aleksandra Wołodźko, CEO of Greenfields
