- Property with guided temperature control to be built on brownfield land in Schweitenkirchen
- Sustainable built-to-own facility to have approx. 12,000 m2 total floor space
- Construction to start in June 2022, with handover planned for June 2023
Panattoni, the leading project developer for industrial and logistics real estate in Europe, is developing a modern logistics facility with the option of multi-temperature use for the Nagel-Group in Schweitenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany. With this new building, the Nagel-Group – a logistics company specialising in food logistics and active throughout Europe – is expanding its presence in Schweitenkirchen with a second premises and is moving its existing business from Garching to the new location.
Within the scope of this built-to-own project, Panattoni is developing around 12,000 m2 of total floor space for the Nagel-Group, who will be both the user and the owner of the property. This space will be divided into approx. 10,000 m2 of hall space, approx. 1,300 m2 of technical space and approx. 700 m2 of office space. The logistics facility will have the option of multi-temperature use, with temperatures in a range from plus 20 degrees Celsius to minus 25 degrees Celsius. This will satisfy the complex usage and temperature demands of the food logistician, who will be using the facility for the storage and handling of foodstuffs.
“With the new and modern multi-temperature hall in Schweitenkirchen, we are laying the groundwork for sustainable growth in the region. We are pleased to have Panattoni as a partner, as they will know how to successfully implement our requirements with regard to food storage and logistics,” explains Michael Hora, Head of Real Estate Projects at the Nagel-Group.
The new building will be constructed on a plot of brownfield land measuring roughly 23,000 m2, which was used by the previous owner as a shipping centre with an attached office. The demolition work for the existing buildings will begin in March 2022, with construction of the new building starting in June. Handover is scheduled for June 2023, with operations starting by the end of that year.
In the spirit of sustainable development, Panattoni and the Nagel-Group are at least aiming for Gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council for the construction of the new facility. In addition to a photovoltaic installation for the power supply and a retention basin for collecting rainwater, e-charging stations for trailers and vehicles will provide a low-emission mobility solution. Noise barriers will ensure that emission levels to the surrounding area are within the prescribed limits.
“The municipality of Schweitenkirchen welcomes this proposition by the Nagel-Group to further expand their regional presence with the construction of a new logistics facility. We are looking forward to the successful and productive cooperation between all those involved now that many of the conditions – including relating to rainwater retention, the installation of solar panels and coordination with the fire department – have been taken into account in the planning work,” says the Mayor of Schweitenkirchen, Josef Heigenhauser.
Fred-Markus Bohne, Managing Partner at Panattoni, commented on the project as follows: “Developing an industrial property of this kind requires a great deal of expertise. The possibility of bringing temperatures down to double-digit minus values must be taken into account as early as during construction. We would like to thank the Nagel-Group for their trust in us to build the new temperature-controlled facility in Schweitenkirchen. We are in open dialogue with the municipality on conditions and the revitalisation of the brownfield land so that we can reach a solution that satisfies everyone.”
