Panattoni Europe investments for Amazon constitute the biggest lease contract in Central and Eastern Europe. Apart from the finalised 246,000 sqm in Poland, the developer is now building more than 120,000 sqm in a distribution centre 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 centres 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 sqm of space, with the warehousing section of approx. 90,000 sqm in each one, and two-storey office space taking up more than 8,000 sqm per centre.
The Amazon facilities are undergoing the final stage of assessment for a BREEAM Interim rating of 'Very Good'. They have been equipped with an intelligent building management system (BMS) which integrates all installations in the facility. (Source: cijjournal.com)
