Industrial real estate giant Prologis has announced developments across the globe. Its commitment to China has been highlighted by an $882 million increase in equity commitment to its China projects, with $132 million of that money coming from Prologis itself. The company also announced the signing of six lease agreements totalling 2.1 million square feet (196,000 square metres) with three new and three repeat customers in the north, west and east regions of China.
In the Netherlands, the company has signed a 36,000 square metre agreement at Prologis Park Tilburg with Coolblue, one of the largest online retailers in the Benelux countries and a current Prologis Park Tilburg customer. The new agreement represents a second expansion at the park and will increase Coolblues total space there to more than 60,000 square metres.
Meanwhile four new lease agreements totalling nearly 98,000 square metres have been agreed at five parks in Hungary.
The transactions in Hungary include:
