Panattoni Europe, the leader in the warehouse space sector in Poland, is expanding its Silesian warehouse park portfolio. The new investments, Panattoni Park Gliwice I and Panattoni Park Gliwice II, comprise three buildings totaling approximately 30,600 m². The first tenant of Panattoni Park Gliwice II is Saint-Gobain Glass Polska.
Panattoni Park Gliwice II is made up of one 8,000-m² building. The construction of the park will commence in March this year. The facility is located within the Katowice Special Economic Zone Gliwice Subzone, and as a result its customer is eligible for tax relief due to operating a business in this area. Another company of the Saint-Gobain Group, namely Saint-Gobain Sekurit Hanglas, leases 15,000 m² of warehouse space at Panattoni Park Czeladê.
Panattoni Park Gliwice I is a project designed to comprise two buildings a BTS facility with 11,165 m² of space, dedicated to a logistics company, and a building offering speculative space of nearly 11,500 m². Construction works on this facility are planned to commence in April 2011.
Both parks are situated some 8km from the center of Gliwice, in the vicinity of the Gliwice-Sosnica junction, linking the motorways A1 and A4; in the northwestern part of Upper Silesia which enjoys growing interest from the business community due to the ongoing road investments. Panattoni Park Gliwice II lies closer to the center of Gliwice, at ul. Bojkowska intersecting the city's future bypass. Also in the direct vicinity of the investment is the Gliwice-Trynek Airport. The biggest asset of the distribution centers is their ideal location, next to major transport nodes and near the borders with the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
