London, 22 February 2013 – Jones Lang LaSalle confirms that it has advised Tesco on the signing of two lease renewals at the end of 2012, totalling 86,400 square meters in Slovakia

Tesco has renewed lease agreements for two facilities, totaling 64,475 and 21,646 square meters respectively.

The state-of-the-art distribution park includes three fully-occupied logistics facilities totalling 186,000 square meters with additional development potential of 62,000 square meters.

Ben Havery, EMEA Logistics & Industrial at Jones Lang LaSalle, who advised Tesco commented: “Early communication between Tesco and Prologis has enabled both parties to successfully achieve their objectives. This is a significant floor plate and is typical of the type of logistics space retailers commit to throughout mainland Europe.”

With on-going advice from Jones Lang LaSalle’s European Logistics platform, we are well positioned for 2013 in Central Europe.”
