Phase 2 Underway for Abu Dhabi Ports ‘KLP’ Project


Abu Dhabi Ports has announced the launch of the second phase of Kizad Logistics Park (KLP) – Non Free Zone warehousing.

KLP is comprised of warehouses in Kizad’s logistics cluster and is set to become one of the leading warehousing centres in the region.

Following the success of KLP Phase 1, Kizad has started construction on the second phase of the project.

64 high-quality modular warehouse units are set to be handed over to tenants by Q3, 2016, bringing the total number of units to 105 covering an area of 118,965 square metres.

Mana Mohammed Saeed Al Mulla, COO of Kizad, said: “Kizad’s development follows a demand-driven approach; responding to the needs of the market and designing flexible solutions accordingly.

“The 41 warehouses in phase 1 were 83% leased prior to construction being completed and 100% leased a few months after that.

“Since then the need for more high-quality warehousing units has encouraged us to start building Phase 2 of KLP.

“In a challenging leasing environment, superior pre-built offerings support businesses with their logistics requirements and the success of KLP’s phase 1 only proves that Kizad is the ideal solution offering an exceptional location, world-class infrastructure and dedicated investor support in a competitive operating environment.”

KLP warehouses are each equipped with 7-metre clear height to eaves on a 1.3-metre raised floor level, dedicated loading areas, ramp access and designated on-site parking.

Each unit has an area of 1,133 square metres with a mezzanine office (shell and core) and larger units can be created by removing internal walls – up to 9,064 square metres.

Ample power for air conditioning is provided in all warehouses and cold storage options in selected units.

It is worth noting that the next phase of development within Kizad will be the free zone pre-built warehouses (Free Zone KLP) currently under design.

Established in 2006, Abu Dhabi Ports celebrates ten years of innovation, growth and partnership embarking on another decade of facilitating economic diversification through enabling maritime and trade development. This is done by delivering high quality maritime services, supporting partners’ infrastructure projects and setting up new companies and joint ventures in the ports and logistics sectors.
