Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has begun work on pre-built units to cater to an increasing customer demand for ready-to-move facilities.
Small-to-medium light industrial warehousing units will be built during the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the KIZAD Logistics Park and will 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 a new modular, pre-built units in various sizes and configurations.”
He added: “With the availability of options to buy or lease warehouses based upon a business’s individual requirements, investors benefit from our flexible offers for low-cost operations at scale as well as our ability to offer the region’s lowest utility costs.
“This is complemented by the unique location at the industrial heart of the UAE, and its direct access to global markets via our flagship deep-water Khalifa Port.”
New developments in Kizad Logistics Park (KLP) 4 and KLP 5 span an area of approximately 250,000 square meters, and offer a range of mixed-use warehousing and light industrial units.
These are comprised of 26 showroom warehouse units and 88 small-to-medium light-industrial and warehousing units.
KLP 6 and KLP 7 offer dedicated plots spanning an area of 330,000 square meters, housing 20 large terraced units, each with an individual floor space of 2,500 square meters.
Located in KIZAD Area A, all modules will be equipped with raised floors, open loading yard access for trucks and forklifts, ample on-site parking will include their own office area with toilets and kitchenettes.
Earlier this month, KIZAD broke ground on a dedicated truck plaza, the largest in the region, to meet the needs of truckers and the zone’s growing industrial community.
