European industrial real estate market leader Panattoni has leased 42,000 sqm to Japanese logistics operator Nissin in Panattoni Park Bydgoszcz IV. The logistics park, which came into use this year, is the first to be developed in the western part of the city and will ultimately comprise three buildings with a total area of 110,000 sqm.
Over a quarter of a million sqm by Panattoni in Bydgoszcz. The Kuyavian-Pomeranian province has been experiencing a huge surge in the demand for industrial space over the last few years. Panattoni has been active on this market for some time – in Bydgoszcz alone the company has provided more than 250,000 sqm to tenants and currently has another 230,000 sqm under construction. Panattoni Park Bydgoszcz IV is the developer's latest project in the region, but the first in the western part of this city. In this new location, the list of tenants already includes companies from the food and production industries as well as logistics operators. In addition to these, 42,000 sqm has now been leased by global logistics operator Nissin Logistics, which is already using a section of the space and will be fully operational in the park in Q3 2023. The company is part of Nissin Corporation – one of the leading Japanese companies in the TSL sector, which has over 100 offices in Asia, North America and Europe.
“We have been cooperating with Nissin for over three years. The first lease agreement was for space at Panattoni Park Bydgoszcz II. However, due to the growth in the scale of its logistics operations, the company decided to relocate to larger premises at Panattoni Park Bydgoszcz IV. In its new location, it will have an entire hall at its disposal, separated from the park and with its own entrance. For Nissin, an additional advantage of our latest development is its location in the western part of the city,” explains Andrzej Spiesz, a development director at Panattoni.
Nissin will provide operations for customers from the food packaging and electronics industries in its newly-leased space, where it will be able to handle up to 50,000 pallets a month. “We have been serving leading producers in Bydgoszcz for a long time. In response to their logistics needs, we have taken the initiative by offering logistics solutions that allow both our customers and ourselves to continue to grow,” insists Sebastian Muziński, the general manager and a management board member of Nissin Logistics Polska. “We want to grow further in this region. At the moment, we are in talks with both current and potential customers regarding increasing the scale of our operations in Bydgoszcz. Our goal is further expansion,” he adds.
Panattoni Park Bydgoszcz IV is situated 12 km from the city centre. The logistics centre, which consists of three halls, will eventually comprise 110,000 sqm of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified space. The park offers high-quality warehouse and office space for lease, which allows for flexible interior designs according to tenants’ requirements, as well as the adaptation of the space for specific production activities. Other additional features of the complex include a strengthened roof for the installation of photovoltaic panels and chargers for electric vehicles.
Bydgoszcz attractive to the biggest. Panattoni is not only developing new parks in Bydgoszcz. One of key investments for the entire region’s is the Zalando logistics centre, which is being built by the developer. At the end of September 2022, the topping out ceremony took place, signalling the completion of the latest stage of the project. The facility will have a total area of 140,000 sqm and provide employment for about 3,500 people. Once completed, it will be used to serve the growing number of Zalando Lounge customers, as the shopping club continues to experience surging demand and popularity.
