Panattoni sells three industrial parks in Poland for €100m

Panattoni has sold three fully leased industrial parks in prime locations, totaling 135,000 sqm, in the Silesia, Poznań, and Łódź regions, to an unnamed global property company, for €100 million.

The developer sold Panattoni Park Żory, covering 37,600 sqm; Panattoni Park Poznań XIII, spanning 42,000 sqm; and Panattoni Park Łódź A1, encompassing 56,000 sqm to the investor.

Michał Stanisławski, Head of Asset Disposition at Panattoni, comments on this significant transaction, saying, “Such a substantial transaction executed by a sector specialist investor signals that strong fundamentals of the industrial market make it an attractive target continuously appreciated by international institutional capital. Poland, situated at the center of Europe, is one of the most important logistics and industrial hubs. It presents dynamic rental and occupational growth due to local and global factors.”

The acquired parks are fully leased, housing international players in sectors like logistics, FMCG, electronics, and DIY. Each facility has achieved a high standard of BREEAM certification, offering energy- and water-efficient solutions and promoting employee well-being.

Robert Dobrzycki, Panattoni CEO & Co-Owner Europe, UK, and India, explains, “In a changing investment landscape influenced by factors like inflation, rising interest rates, and construction costs, the industrial real estate segment stands out as a promising option. Growing trends such as nearshoring, reshoring, and the expansion of e-commerce play a significant role in this. Warehouse, logistics, and industrial facilities are becoming critical infrastructure, strategically positioned closer to customers to secure supply chains. Poland, with its excellent location, is a preferred destination for long-term investors appreciating the potential of our developments.”

Panattoni Park Żory offers access to the densely populated Silesian agglomeration and is conveniently located between Czech Ostrava and Katowice, providing efficient access to the A1 and A4 motorways and the S1 expressway.

Panattoni Park Poznań XIII is a mere 15 minutes’ drive from the international airport, which handled over 2.25 million passengers in 2022. Additionally, its proximity to the A2 motorway ensures efficient connections to Warsaw and Berlin.

Panattoni Park Łódź A1 is situated near the A1 motorway, linking the northern and southern borders of Poland. Moreover, the investment is just 30 minutes away from a railway terminal servicing international connections extending to distant destinations, including China.
