Panattoni, the world’s most active industrial real estate developer, has finalised another large transaction. A specialist real estate investor has purchased the Panattoni Park Poznań XI for EUR 92.5 million. The centre is one of the main logistics hubs for an e-commerce company.

“The recent sale of Panattoni Park Poznań XI, along with the earlier sale of Panattoni Park Wrocław West Gate in March, highlights our ability to swiftly finalize major transactions in a very short period of time. These deals reflect the high quality of Panattoni’s industrial parks and their attractiveness to international investors. The increasing activity of specialized investors demonstrates the strong fundamentals of the Polish market, enabling implementation of sector-oriented growth strategies. The investors aim at well-positioning themselves within the current phase of the cycle and accessing top-quality assets – driving demand for Panattoni’s properties.” – comments Michał Stanisławski, the Head of Asset Dispositions at Panattoni.

Panattoni Park Poznań XI is a fully commercialised complex in Żerniki just outside Poznań comprising two buildings. The tenants are DHL Supply Chain and Arvato, two international supply chain management companies.

A BTS development for a giant of e-commerce. The larger of the two buildings is a BTS development constructed for DHL Supply Chain to provide logistics services for a major e-commerce player. The operations include the distribution of goods to many European markets including Poland and Germany. The opening of the logistics centre resulted in the creation of around 800 new jobs.

A green investment. Sustainable development is important to the strategies of DHL Supply Chain and Panattoni, and for this reason the Poznań facility stands out in this regard. It has been certified under BREEAM with a rating of Excellent, but for three of the assessment categories – Water, Waste as well as Health & Wellbeing – it received the highest rating of Outstanding. Thanks to the solutions used, water use was reduced by over 60% and power usage was down by 18% on the average baseline model. The buildings and their surroundings have been prepared for the coming long-term changes to the climate. The selection of the materials and the solutions applied are to protect them from severe weather. A Centre Adaption Strategy has also been drawn up for possible changes in usage and the Building Life Cycle Analysis confirms that reductions to power usage, emissions and harm to the environment have been maximised over the entire life cycle of the building.

Twelve parks for EUR 500 mln. Last year, Panattoni finalised the sales of twelve parks in Poland for a total combined price of around EUR 500 mln. This means that the developer’s share of the total transaction volume for the industrial market in Poland came to over 50%.
