Panattoni to develop new logistics and industrial site to the south of Saarbrücken

  • Panattoni Park Saarbrücken is available for prospective tenants with a total rentable area of approx. 10,400 m2
  • Completion scheduled for June 2020

Panattoni, the leading project developer for industrial and logistics properties in Europe, is developing 25,000 sqm of logistics and industrial space in Kleinblittersdorf, Saarland. Two construction phases are being developed on former factory premises in the Saar-Blies business park in Rilchingen-Hanweiler. In 2019, automotive supplier HBPO secured the first construction phase, where front sections for a new Mercedes-Benz model being manufactured in Hambach, France starting in autumn this year will be produced.

The second construction phase, with a total rentable area of approx. 10,400 m2, is still available to prospective tenants, with the smallest unit being around 4,800 m2 in size. Interested tenants can contact property consulting firm Colliers International for more information. The second construction phase is set to be completed in June 2020.

The site is located to the south of Saarbrücken on the French-German border and enjoys excellent traffic connections, with the B51 federal road reaching the A6 and A620 federal autobahns in just a few minutes. And there are also superb public transport connections thanks to the proximity of Saarbrücken airport and the local train network.

The new logistics centre has generated a positive response from the municipal and village council of Rilchingen-Hanweiler. The arrival of the company HBPO alone is creating 120 new jobs, and more are expected once the second construction has also been let. Furthermore, in the interests of sustainable construction, every effort will be made to meet the Gold Standard of the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) during construction of the premises.

“Both the municipality and the region will profit from this new property. During the project’s development, the issue of sustainability was a particularly important topic for us, and we would like to express our thanks to our municipal partners especially for the productive collaboration during the project,” says Fred-Markus Bohne, Managing Partner of Panattoni.

Yunus Erciyas, a representative from Colliers International and responsible for marketing the Panattoni sites, comments: “We are delighted that there are already initial talks with potential users underway so that from the middle of the year onwards life can return to the former wasteland.”
