Last year, approximately 600,000 sqm of logistics and industrial spaces were built. And, as usual, Bucharest holds the leading place in developments, totaling over 450,000 square meters of newly delivered spaces. With these new deliveries, the stock of industrial spaces in Romania has exceeded the threshold of 5 million sqm, reaching 5.05 million sqm, compared to 4.46 million sqm in 2019. Of this stock, half is owned by the 3 major developers: CTP, WDP and P3. “This is also because 2020 was a better year in terms of traded industrial spaces than 2019, respectively there were larger areas by 37.93% (654,904 sqm vs. 474,800 sqm). Construction did not stop, but on the contrary continued throughout 2020, with adaptation to the conditions imposed by the pandemic. Almost all the construction sites that were underway at the beginning of the year continued and / or completed their works ", said Marian Orzu, Dunwell Managing Partner at the request of Forbes Romania.
Regarding the current year, it seems that, according to Marian Orzu, the industrial market is on an upward trend. "From what we see from the activity of our company, 2021 started very well, there is a very good pipeline of leads, there are still quite a lot of requests. What we are very happy about is that we have more and more requests from production, a field that has not been very active in recent years. We hope that during this year we will complete at least 3 transactions for production spaces, with areas of over 10,000 sqm each, in addition to the classic storage", added Marian Orzu, Dunwell Managing Partner.
