Polfa Warszawa with new R&D center in 7R City Park warehouse
The global pandemic has clearly shown how important it is to secure drug supplies. With properly strengthened and planned logistics operations and drug manufacturing processes in Poland, we have an opportunity to ensure continuity in supplies for patients. Warehouse and industrial developers are tackling this issue by creating specialized buildings adapted to the needs of pharmaceutical companies. An example of such cooperation will be the space for a new research and development center for Polfa Warszawa, one of the Poland’s largest pharmaceutical companies, which will be prepared by 7R in the developer’s 7R City Park Warsaw Airport III investment on Osmańska Street.
The planned investment will be a complex of two buildings with a total area of 24,000 sqm, which will offer both warehouse and production space as well as high standard office space. The first tenant of the new City Park is Polfa Warszawa, which has decided to lease 5,500 sqm of modern warehouse and production space with support facilities.
The space for Polfa Warszawa will be built to the rigorous standards demanded by the pharmaceutical industry with the company being able to develop, produce, and store products on the premises. In order to achieve satisfactory noise reduction levels, the production hall and offices will be equipped with triple-glazed windows and façade panels with a higher acoustic coefficient than found in typical warehouses.
For the purposes of Polfa Warszawa’s operations planned for the location, a special mezzanine will also be installed over the tenant’s entire warehouse and production area. The mezzanine will house elements of the technology that Polfa will install in its new R&D center to ensure the space maintains top pharmaceutical standards.
We started our talks with Polfa Warszawa at an early stage of investment planning, thanks to which we were able to plan the layout of the R&D center in such a way as to match what our client needed. We have experience in preparing specialized facilities for the pharmaceutical industry, so we are able to use all our best practices to ensure the building meets the highest standards, says Bartlomiej Krawiecki, Member of the Board, Head of Development at 7R.
7R City Park Warsaw Airport III is another 7R warehouse which has pharmaceutical tenants. The developer has previously provided space for two brands from the Pelion Group - Medezin and Pharmalink, as well as for Cefea and Marrodent.
The building on Osmańska Street is scheduled for completion in Q4 2021. Kwadrat architectural studio is responsible for the architectural design. The general contractor is Goldbeck. The project will receive a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certificate and will offer eco-friendly solutions such as photovoltaics, a grey water system, LED lighting and green amenities for employees.
