Damian Kowalczyk, Development Director of Panattoni has stated in comment on the project that: “For us, this is an enormous privilege that another global business has partnered with us when taking an important step in its development. Our leading position in supplying industrial space, which has recently been confirmed by the rankings published by PropertyEU, is paying dividends and the experience we have gained from other technically advanced developments has turned out to be vital for those that partner with us from the other side of the world, including from the US and China.” And he adds: “This is also an exceptional project not only because of what it will do for the region and Poland's image around the world but also and above all for what it will do for the local job market and the entire real estate industry."
The green source of advanced technology
The investment is to be certified under the US-based LEED system for a rating of ‘Gold’. The planned heat and water recovery systems as well as those designed to save energy will have a significant impact on the operations of the centre. Additionally, by applying the latest technology CO2 emissions will be limited to a great extent. The developer is also to look after the comfort of the employees by ensuring adequate natural lighting and appropriate acoustics. A green relaxation area is to be created on the grounds of the project and the users of the building will also have access to cycling facilities and electric vehicle charging stations.
The production plant is being
constructed as a BTO centre within a retail and warehousing area of
Wrocław, known as the Psie Pole district. The interest that the regional
capital of Lower Silesia attracts should be of no surprise. In the
Global Cities of The Future ranking, it was the highest placed Polish
city and was also ranked first in the world among mid-sized and smaller
cities. With its strategic location, Wrocław gives companies convenient
access to urban centres such as Warsaw, Berlin and Prague.
The factory’s location will give it ready access to the S8 expressway (Warsaw-Łódź-Wrocław-Prague) and the A8 motorway (Wrocław’s bypass). It also will have ready access to the centre of the city (15 min by car) and Wrocław Airport (30-min drive). Moreover, bus stops and a PKP train station can be found nearby, which will be a major convenience for the factory’s numerous personnel.
