Panattoni Europe will increase the supply of warehouse space in Silesia, the key industrial hub of Central and Eastern Europe. The developer has just bought land for its new investment – Panattoni Park Czeladź III. The construction of the 68,000 sqm complex will commence this quarter, creating new jobs in the region.
Panattoni has invested a total of PLN 260 million in Czeladź. Panattoni Europe has recognised the potential of Silesia for years, developing industrial facilities in Gliwice, Sosnowiec, Katowice, Mysłowice, Bielsko-Biała, Ruda Śląska and Czeladź. The company has acquired land with 12,5 ha within city limits, at ul. Gdańska, in the vicinity of the M1 shopping centre, right next to two already existing facilities – Panattoni Park Czeladź I (46,700 sqm), where Saint-Gobain Sekurit HanGlas Polska Sp. z o.o. occupies approx. 20,000 sqm, and Panattoni Park Czeladź II (with approx. 15,800 sqm).
Silesia, and by the same token Czeladź, is one of the most important beneficiaries of new trends in European supply chains and light industry. Apart from access to very good transport infrastructure, the region boasts its supply of skilled labour. Access to human resources, and consequently filling positions, are set to be the greatest challenges in the industrial property business in the next 10 years. “Thanks to projects like Panattoni Park Czeladź III, located within the city next to its largest shopping centre, we will create new jobs. We are prepared to face the growing needs of not only tenants, but also their customers” – says Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director Panattoni Europe.
Silesia is the most industrialised and urbanised region of Poland, with very well developed road and rail transport facilities and a sophisticated telecommunications infrastructure. More than 4.54 million people live here, which makes it the most densely populated region, with 369 people per km2, compared to Poland’s average 123 people per km2, and 118,5 people per km2 across the European Union. Such a high population in a single area creates not only an enormous market for consumer goods, but also one of the best industrial regions in Central and Eastern Europe.
Panattoni Park Czeladź III will be located in the strategic eastern part of the city, at ul. Gdańska, in the vicinity of the junction of national roads no 94 (Wrocław-Kraków) and no 86 (Katowice-Łódź). The A4 motorway runs some 12 km south, and the A1 motorway – 15 km west of the park. The logistics centre is accessible by public transport.
