Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has broken ground on a project to provide additional pre-built warehousing facilities to meet growing demand. The range of small-to-medium light-industrial warehousing units, available to buy or rent, comprise the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the KIZAD Logistics Park (KLP) and are set to be introduced to the market starting from the end of the year.
Abdullah Al Hameli, Acting Head of Industrial Zones Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “Industrial activity and warehousing demand has been quite resilient, and we are confident that launching these ultra-modern units will propel tremendous growth in Abu Dhabi’s manufacturing base. Customers are looking for flexible and asset-light options, and we are expanding our portfolio to address these needs through the launching of new modular, pre-built units in various sizes and configurations.”
The new developments in KLP 4 and KLP 5 will provide a total plot area of around 250,000 m2 and include a range of mixed-use warehousing and light industrial units. In addition, KLP 6 and KLP 7 will offer dedicated plots covering a total of 330,000 m2, housing 20 large terraced units, each with an individual floor space of 2,500 m2, while KLP 7 will feature 56 medium light-industrial and warehousing units. Located in KIZAD Area A, all modules will be equipped with raised floors, open loading yard access for trucks and forklifts, and on-site parking.
