Panattoni Europe gets going with a park in Legnica

Panattoni Europe, industrial real estate leader in Europe, returns to Legnica with a new project. The developer has commenced works on the first modern distribution centre in the Legnica area, planned to total in excess of 100,000 sqm. The platform has already secured its first tenant, for whom 23,300 sqm is being delivered in a single building.

Legnica has now officially made it to the warehousing map of Poland. To date, the region was chosen mainly as a location for production facilities, as evidenced by some of Panattoni Europe’s spectacular projects, e.g. for Lear Corporation (30,000 sqm), Faurecia (13,600 sqm) or the upcoming factory for Voss Fluid (10,000 sqm). With the latest investment – Panattoni Park Legnica, planned to total in excess of 100,000 sqm – the region is changing its image, and Legnica now officially claims its place on the warehousing map of Poland with modern class A facilities.

The first facility to be erected at Panattoni Park Legnica is a modern 23,300-square-metre logistics centre for a supplier of solutions used in industrial, hydraulic and automotive applications. Panattoni Europe will adapt the facility to the tenant’s requirements, including customised picking line solutions, with comprehensive structured cabling and infrastructure for compressed air installations. Some of the space will be dedicated to round-the-clock operations. Additionally, the facility will feature a large office section – approx. 2,500 sqm. The project will undergo the BREEAM In-Use environmental certification process aiming for a Very Good rating, and will be completed in August 2019.

“Legnica, which belongs to the Wrocław region – one of the top logistics locations in Poland – will gain its first modern distribution platform dedicated to multiple tenants. The park will comprise four facilities, planned to total in excess of 100,000 sqm, situated just 6 km from a motorway entrance to the A4 and 3 km from the S3 route,” says Maciej Madejak, Managing Director Panattoni Europe.

Legnica is one of the best locations in the heart of Lower Silesia, at the intersection of major transport routes – the A4 motorway leading from Western Europe to Ukraine, and the upcoming S3 expressway along the western border of Poland. The latter runs north-south and provides the shortest route from the Scania region of Sweden to the north of the Czech Republic and ports on the Mediterranean Sea. The city itself lies 75 km from Wrocław in a straight line, 170 km from Dresden and Prague, and 200 km from Berlin.
