Wing, a major player on the Budapest logistics market, is launching the second phase of its highly popular East Gate Business Park project. The development of East Gate PRO will start with the construction of two new halls with an area of over 20,000 sqm. Wing, the owner and developer of the park, has been active on the Hungarian industrial property market for more than 20 years and has unique expertise in customized and complex hall solutions.
The construction of the new warehouse complex, on a plot on the opposite side of Fóti út, follows the great success of East Gate Business Park and Login Business Park and responds to growing market demand. Several international corporations have their Hungarian or regional center in East Gate Industrial Park, and five of the 50 largest Hungarian companies also have facilities here. The first two halls of East Gate PRO are scheduled to be completed in Q2 2022; three additional halls are planned on the site.
Occupants have flexibility when selecting hall type and size, which allows for customized arrangements in the buildings. Future tenants are engaged in the project from the design phase, participating in the creation of custom architectural and interior design solutions, so meeting rooms and community spaces can be created according to their needs, and their corporate visual identity can also be displayed.
In addition to hall developments for logistics, warehousing, and production purposes, there will be office and service functions available, too. The new halls will offer spaces of various sizes, with several loading options in the units and a possibility of expansion. The high-quality, modern buildings at East Gate PRO will provide engineering services such as an ESFR sprinkler system, access control with license plate recognition, a security camera system, and a cross-docking function in buildings C1 and C2.
“Recently there has been a massive surge in e-commerce, followed by an increasing demand for industrial and logistics properties, as we have seen it at East Gate and Login Business Park, which led us to start the East Gate PRO development,” says György Mucsi, Wing’s deputy CEO for industrial properties. “Wing has been present on the industrial real estate market for more than 20 years. It has collected unique professional know-how in the field of custom-made warehouse logistics and production/assembly hall solutions,” Mucsi adds.
East Gate PRO, situated at the junction of the M0 and M3 motorways in a livable, people-oriented, landscaped environment, is a mere 20 minutes from the city center and has a bus stop at the entrance. In addition to the great location, the development has many other benefits and offers customized, complex solutions. The modern buildings can be used for storage and production and are also suitable for quality offices, customized head offices, and headquarters.
The protection of the environment is a priority for Wing, so the halls at East Gate PRO will have BREEAM certification and will offer eco-friendly and health-conscious solutions and smart services. Eco-friendly, easy-to-clean building materials with no harmful components will be used in the hall development project. To facilitate sustainable operation, selective waste management and energy-efficient solutions will be available in the industrial park.
Wing is committed to health promotion, so contactless switches will be installed in the common bathrooms in the buildings of the development. Every part of the office will have windows that open, which will allow for a continuous flow of fresh air, and the office spaces can be divided in several ways according to the tenants’ needs, with one-person workstations or areas for 50-person meetings.
