Panattoni is continuing to attract business to Poland’s Kujawy province. Three big players have already leased space in Panattoni Park Toruń II: global logistics operators Dachser and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Polska as well as a wholesale distributor of FMCG products. The companies will be moving into the complex in Q3 this year. Panattoni has now delivered more than 300,000 sqm in the region.
The developer has to date delivered more than 300,000 sqm in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian voivodeship. The company has also been attracting to the region leading players in many sectors, such as e-commerce, logistics (including the courier segment) and retail. This is also true for its latest park in the region. Two global logistics companies – Dachser and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Polska – as well as one of the largest companies specialising in the wholesale distribution of FMCG products, will be moving into Panattoni Park Toruń II, which is currently under construction, in the third quarter of 2022. The tenants are to occupy a hall that will eventually have an area of 20,000 sqm.
“We are continuing to expand our portfolio in Toruń and Bydgoszcz, as the potential of the Kuyavian market just continues to grow. The region benefits from its attractive location and convenient access to the rest of Pomerania and the continent from nearby key seaports, as well as to the western border and the Polish capital. Therefore, it is not surprising that in 2021 the greatest demand for industrial space outside Poland’s ‘Big Five’ markets occurred here, where it exceeded 400,000 sqm. We are pleased that we can actively participate in this and are confident that over the next few years the region will prosper even further,” says Andrzej Spiesz, Development Director, Panattoni.
Panattoni’s new park is being built in the Toruń-East Investment and Logistics zone, which has the advantage of being close to two national roads: the DK 10 – running between the Warsaw area and Szczecin and the Germany border – and the DK 15, which connects Masuria with Lower Silesia. The routes, which run in four directions, allow for efficient domestic transportation, while the location near the border is highly convenient for international activities.
Panattoni Park Toruń II will consist of one building with a target area of 19,910 sqm, which is scheduled for completion in Q3 2022. It will feature flexible modules and space that can be adapted for activities carried out by both e-commerce and logistics operators, or for light production. The project will be developed in a sustainable manner, while the developer will also ensure that biodiversity is maintained on the site. Around 70 trees are to be planted and an area of 800 sqm will be populated with native shrubs. In addition to this, 250 sqm of ecological flower meadows are to be created that do not require frequent mowing. Insect houses will also be set up on the grounds of the park.
