The Czech based sports goods retailer will be occupying almost half of the space in the 32,000 sqm building, which was previously fully leased by Billa and is now undergoing refurbishment. Europa Capital bought the building in October 2013 and appointed Charnwood as asset manager to implement all aspects of the project. A valid building permit is in place for an additional 55,000 sqm to be built on 15 ha adjacent to the building. “With all of the existing ambie02nt storage space having now been leased, we have the benefit of being able to offer bespoke storage space that can be developed on the surrounding land. We believe this will also attract strong interest from occupiers looking to be in this location and are indeed in discussion with a number of parties,” commented Robert Martin, the head for Central Europe of Europa Capital.
