Panattoni Europe, a leading project developer of industrial and logistics properties, is constructing a multi-functional and flexible production and logistics property on the former production site of the Reckitt-Benckiser Group in Ladenburg. On the 120,000 m2 site in Dr. Ing. Albert-Reimann-Straße in the industrial district ‘Altwasser’ by the Neckar canal, the group had manufactured dishwasher tablets until mid-2016. In the interplay between the municipality and the project developer, one of the last major development areas in the Rhine-Neckar region will be revitalized and provided with economic reuse. The site is effectively connected to the A5 and A6 motorways via the L597 and the North bypass.
Panattoni will erect three halls with a maximum height of 12.20 m UKB with 20,000, 23,000 and 8,000 m2 warehousing and production space as well as a total of 2,500 m2 of office, social and mezzanine space from the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2018 onwards. The halls will be constructed according to the sustainability requirements of the DGNB Gold Standard (German Sustainable Building Council). Special measures for soil sealing in accordance with the provisions of the WGK (Water Hazard Classes) also make it possible to handle substances hazardous to water.
Panattoni is investing more than € 70 million in the revitalization of the former production site and the construction of the Panattoni Logistic Park in Ladenburg. Completion of the first construction phase is scheduled for the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019. By the end of 2019, the third hall will also be ready for occupancy. Colliers International initiated the project as intermediary and will subsequently take over the marketing of the space.
Thanks to its flexible construction, the Panattoni Logistic Park is ideally designed as a multi-user facility for production and logistics processes. In addition, a local company will expand its production on-site with around 20,000 m2.
Fred-Markus Bohne, Managing Partner of Panattoni Europe, emphasized:
"We are very pleased that with the Logistic Park Ladenburg in one of the top regions, we can provide flexible production and logistics space that is otherwise hardly available. It is in line with our sustainable concept of bringing so-called brownfield properties, which are currently no longer economically viable, to new, high-quality use. "
