Panattoni Park Łódź East – cornerstone laid
Panattoni Europe is now developing building five at Panattoni Park Łódź East. The new facility will offer 24,000 sqm, of which 16,200 sqm has already been taken up. The first tenants are: BSH Sprzęt Gospodarstwa Domowego, which has leased 11,000 sqm, and GEFCO Polska with 5,500 sqm. At full build-out the complex will comprise as much as 187,000 sqm. The ceremony to lay the cornerstone for the new investment took place at the park on 24 July.
"The acquisition of a larger warehouse space is due to the consolidation of our logistics operations in the Łódź region, which in turn was caused by BSH's integration with Zelmer and the development of our export production,” commented Paweł Trojanowski, Logistics Director at BSH Sprzęt Gospodarstwa Domowego.
Aleksander Zacirka, Transport and Warehousing Director at GEFCO Polska, commented: "The launch of our logistics platform in Łódź is an important step in our development strategy for general cargo, domestic and international. The Łódź platform will serve as the central hub of our network in Poland and consolidation point for consignments to Russia and Eastern Europe. Moreover, the enhanced fire resistance of the building will enable us to offer dedicated solutions in contract logistics."
Upon completion of construction works, planned for the end of this year, Panattoni Park Łódź East will comprise as much as 187,000 sqm. The general contractor for the present stage of the project is Kajima Poland. The park itself lies in the direct vicinity of the Łódź East interchange of the A1 motorway (Gdańsk-Cieszyn), as little as 10 km from the city centre.
