JLL assists Maracana to become tenant at MLP Bucharest West

One of the leading European logistics companies has just become a tenant at MLP Bucharest West. MLP Group was assisted in completing the transaction by JLL, a real estate services company responsible for commercialising the entire project in Romania.

Maracana is a logistics company present on the Romanian market for over 30 years. It operates a vast fleet of vehicles and offers fast transport services in all transport modes and to all destinations. Its key values are safety, professionalism and tailor-made solutions. The company is constantly focused on developing safety measures to eliminate any risks that may get in the way of smooth cargo transport. The Group’s priority is to ensure safe and efficient transport services for customers.

In January 2021, Maracana signed a contract with MLP Group to lease more than 5,000 m2 of modern warehouse space. The facility is scheduled for handover in February 2021.

”The new lease contract is another brick to the partnership that JLL have both with the landlord, MLP Group, and the tenant, Maracana. We are very happy that we succeeded again to put together two important companies and creating a synergy between their businesses. This is only the beginning of the partnership involving MLP Group and Maracana, considering that the tenant intends to expend its activities in MLP Bucharest West with an additional spaces of 5,000 m²”, comments Ionuț Grigoraș, consultant Industrial Department JLL Romania. 

Phase one of the MLP Bucharest West logistics park has an area of 22,000 m2, of which 15,000 m2 has already been leased out.

“I am very pleased with our cooperation with JLL, which made it possible to finalize the lease so quickly in such a difficult period. The project in Romania was built on a speculative basis, therefore were able to meet the expectations of the customer, who needed warehouse space immediately. Moreover, the location of our project is undoubtedly its great advantage for prospective customers,” said Agnieszka Góźdź, Sales Director at MLP Group S.A.

MLP Bucharest West is a logistics and manufacturing park with a target area of 99,000 m2. The logistics centre is located in Romania’s key region, only 15 km from the capital city, and has a direct access to the ring road and the A1 motorway. The perfect location of the distribution centre is undoubtedly one of its key advantages, supporting fast and efficient logistics operations.

2021 started very well for the industrial market, continuing the extraordinary evolution that this segment had in 2020. We saw at this beginning of the year more activity on the demand side than last year, and this makes us optimistic about the market performance in 2021”, comments Mihai Escu, senior consultant JLL România.

Commissioner Cretu, at the presentation conference of the Country Report for Romania: Not all Romanians benefit from economic growth. Poverty remains an important problem for Romania and regional inequalities increase. FinMin Teodorovici: EU officials only feign interest in citizens, everyone for themselves The Country Report presented by the European Commission that includes Romania in the imbalanced states’ category was drafted based on media-provided information and placed in a wrong context, and the European officials often only feign interest in the EU citizens, while seeing to their own interest, Romanian Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici on Friday told an event organised by the European Commission, on the launch of the Country Report. “Romania was parked in the category of the states with imbalances although only one indicator in the scoreboard related to the analysis exceeds the specific reference criterion, namely the GDP percentage of the net international investment position. Since 2012, the value of this indicator has improved by 19.7pct, up to 47.7pct of GDP in 2017. It is a more than favourable evolution, yet the Commission has chosen to place Romania in the category of the states with imbalances, even if the thresholds associated with this indicator are currently exceeded by 13 EU Member States,” the minister said. According to Teodorovici, out of the 15 countries that are not facing imbalances, none is observing the ceilings specific to all of the indicators in the scoreboard. He added that the officials at the helm of the European Commission are concerned with the citizens’ welfare only at a declarative level. “Speaking of equality at European level, I try to recall or read in fact on my papers what the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was saying in his speech on the state of the country in 2017: ‘I will not accept that food of lower quality be sold in certain parts of Europe than in other countries, although the packaging and branding are identical. We must offer the national authorities increased competencies in order to eliminate any illegal practices.’ What is the outcome today? It is the end of the current EC mandate and these competencies have not been granted. So, in terms of double standard, we are witnessing some positive statements, unaccompanied by regulations, though. The EU only seems concerned with the issue of the food’s double standard,” the Finance minister asserted. Teodorovici highlighted that European Commissioner Corina Cretu, attending the event, is running for the European Parliament which in his opinion, does not make her a representative dialogue partner at EU level. He recommended that the European officials never use in their reports misleading articles from the national media which in his opinion, are totally incorrect and irresponsible. Upon leaving, the minister was asked by the journalists what is it with this anti-European message. “My message is not anti-European, I’m a pro-European person, this is me my entire life, I was also involved in the negotiation concerning Romania’s accession to the EU and in attracting EU funds, and not only. Am I criticising? I’ll criticise anyone who has an unfair approach with regard to Romania, if this is an anti-European message, then so be it. If one calls a spade a spade that doesn’t mean he-she is anti-European. All the small countries should be treated in the same way as the other countries,” Teodorovici stressed.
