1st HelloParks Halls Already Fully Occupied
The first two warehouses of the industrial real estate developer HelloParks have become 100% occupied over a few months, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
In January, the first 46,000 sqm building of HelloParks Maglód (MG1) received the occupancy permit, which was followed by the handover of the first 46,000 sqm phase of HelloParks Fót (FT1) in June. The Fót hall has reached maximum occupancy in less than two months after its handover, therefore both warehouses operate at 100% occupancy rate by now.
The facilities are operated by sustainable, smart BMS (Building Management System) and IoT technology solutions. The first building of the Maglód megapark has been chosen by market players such as FoxPost, Bútor1, Quehenberger, Karzol-Trans, and Esdwork, while the FT1 hall has also been taken by high-profile tenants including HTNS, Expert, K&V and Seojin Auto Hungary.
Both halls have been designed, built, and operated to meet the criteria of the BREEAM New Construction Excellent rating.
There are smart-ready lights in common areas, expandable solar panels on the rooftops, electric car chargers in the parking lots of the warehouses, and energy-efficient mechanical systems in the buildings. Tenants can also manage their energy consumption via the HelloParks app. They can monitor their utility consumption, adjust heating, ventilation, and lighting settings from anywhere by the mobile app. They can also create time schedules and check whether all lights are turned off.
"There is still a strong market demand for environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and smart industrial and warehouse centers, which is confirmed by the significant demand for HelloParks Maglód and HelloParks Fót. Our projects are being developed at full capacity, which enables our megaparks to meet a wider range of needs and requirements. The upcoming phases, that will be handed over this year, are also going to be ground-breaking in the industry," emphasized Rudolf Nemes, CEO of HelloParks.
Preparations are currently underway for the second 45,000 sqm hall (MG3) at HelloParks Maglód, and it is expected to be ready for occupation in the last quarter of 2022. With the new facility, HelloParks is already aiming to achieve the highest BREEAM New Construction rating, "Outstanding", which is achieved by less than 3% of buildings worldwide. HelloParks is currently the only developer in Hungary to develop an industrial building in line with the requirements of this rating. The entire Maglód development is planned to be built on a 46-hectare site, with the potential for more than 200,000 sqm of warehouse and industrial space.
Construction work on the next 26,000 sqm hall (FT6), also aiming for BREEAM New Construction "Outstanding" certification, started in April on the 76-hectare HelloParks Fót site. The building reached structural completion at the beginning of July and the first tenants will be able to move in at the end of the year. This will be HelloParks' first City Flex warehouse, which will have a minimum leasable unit of 1,000 sqm instead of the previous 3,400 sqm. The hall, with drive-in doors on one side as well as docking and ramp drive-in doors on the other, will be better suited to urban logistics, light manufacturing, and assembly businesses due to its lower ceiling height and smaller size.
At the same time, the final phase of earthworks, soil stabilization, and bedding preparation is currently underway at the first HelloParks Páty building, but structural works will also start soon. The first building on the more than 100 hectares of land in Páty will be 58,000 sqm, and in total 400,000 sqm of gross leasable area will be available for modern warehousing and manufacturing.
