Panattoni City Dock Törökbálint, the brand new logistics centre is located just 12 kilometres from Budapest. The complex of four warehouses has been developed to the latest environmental standards and regulations.
At the opening of the 17,300 sqm Panattoni City Dock Törökbálint, which includes four modern logistics halls László Kemenes, Managing Director of Panattoni Hungary said that in just 9 months a state-of-the-art, BREEAM Excellent certified, energy and environmentally conscious business park was built in a challenging period. The project was designed by Value4Real and constructed by Market Zrt. and Aston Construction Zrt.
Panattoni is tailoring each of the four buildings to the needs of the tenants, the first tenant will move in at the beginning of Summer: pharmaceutical products manufacturer Pharma Pack - a wholly owned Hungarian subsidiary of Extrovis AG - will build a warehouse base and packaging plant, including a specially designed cold storage, all this on 3,000 square metres.
The complex is a so-called last-mile warehouse centre, which could be a good solution for companies that want to improve their delivery efficiency and inventory management processes, as well as reduce their costs and environmental impact.
As with all its projects, Panattoni has paid particular attention to sustainability: half of the site is covered with trees and shrubs, plants and wild flowers are watered by an automatic irrigation system, and the site aims to create and preserve biodiversity. The car park has been equipped with several electric charging stations and car-sharing spaces, as well as bike and scooter storage. The buildings have been equipped with sanitary fittings and taps with reduced water consumption, leak detection systems and intelligent energy management systems in line with BREEAM guidelines. In an effort to increase natural lighting, large windows were built in the offices and the acoustics of the office spaces were also designed according to the BREEAM guidelines.
At the opening ceremony, where guests planted a sapling instead of a ribbon cutting in the spirit of environmental protection, Sándor Elek, Mayor of Törökbálint, said that the town is proud to be a "Business Friendly Municipality" and that Panattoni's stability and professionalism are a perfect match for the values of Törökbálint.
Today's first step in Panattoni's expansion in Hungary is closely followed by the second. It was recently announced that the developer will build a 64,000 sqm warehouse center in Gyál, the investment will start this year.
