Panattoni Europe, Poland's leader in the industrial property market, has completed the construction of 246,000 m² for Amazon in Poland and together with the online retail giant officially opened two modern distribution centers in Bielany Wrocławskie and in Sady near Poznań.
Panattoni Europe investments for Amazon constitute the biggest lease contract in Central and Eastern Europe. Apart from the finalized 246,000 m² in Poland, the developer is now building more than 120,000 m² in a distribution center for Amazon in the Czech Republic.
Robert Dobrzycki, Managing Partner Panattoni Europe, comments: "We are proud of the fact that Panattoni Europe has had an opportunity to develop two out of three new distribution centers for Amazon in Poland, as well as the facility in the Czech Republic. All these projects share certain characteristics, first of all the strategic locations from the point of view of Amazon, us as the developer, and also their local logistics markets. That is why we are extremely pleased with the results of our cooperation, giving us unique experience, as well as a chance to contribute to the development of the warehousing and logistics market not just in Poland, but on a European scale."
Each of the Panattoni Europe facilities for Amazon totals in excess of 100,000 m² of space, with the warehousing section of approx. 90,000 m² in each one, and two-story office space taking up more than 8,000 m² per center.
