CTP further expanded its portfolio in Romania and in the vicinity of Bucharest where it owns three properties: CTPark Bucharest West, CTPark Bucharest and CTPark Bucharest Chitila. Also, CTP brought an ambitious Business Development Manager in Transylvania – Emilia Tepes, to double its portfolio in the region.
The most recent purchase finalized is located near the capital, on the A1, at km 13, which was bought with approximately 30 million euro from Forum Serdika, in the beginning of March 2020. Equest Logistic Park covers an area of 11 ha split into 2 plots of land fully developed holding 3 (three) logistics buildings, fully occupied. The project boasts a GLA of 57,000 m2.
“This acquisition represents a significant opportunity to further consolidate CTP’s dominance at km 13, where we boast one of our main hubs in Romania, CTPark Bucharest. I do believe in Romania’s development capabilities in terms of infrastructure and attraction of new investments. The acquisition will enable CTP to access a new range of tenants that prove strong opportunities to grow their operations in Romania,” stated Ana Dumitrache, CTP Romania’s Country Manager. CTP plans to incorporate built-to-suit buildings with specifications matching key occupier requirements. “We are decided to increase our stock of logistics and industrial spaces which is now at 1,200,000 m2 GLA of A-Class warehouses spread throughout Romania”, further explained Ana Dumitrache.
CTP is extending its business development team with Emilia Tepes joining the management department. Emilia will take charge of CTP´s Transylvania business development activity. Emilia’s challenge is to fill up all existing buildings of CTP in Transylvania, but also to grow the local portfolio by 15% at least annually, which is the growth rate of CTP group in general, and actually double Transylvania portfolio until 2023. “I am very happy and proud to have been invited to join CTP team, the largest industrial park developer in Central & Eastern Europe. I hope I will be instrumental in assisting CTP to achieve it’s ambitious targets for Transylvania, as I am convinced that the opportunities in this area are vast and we are only at the beginning of their exploration”, says Emilia Tepes.
