Panattoni Europe, Poland’s leader in the industrial real estate market, is to build another facility for DSV Solutions. The 25,000-square-metre logistics centre will be erected in Pęcice, as part of Panattoni Park Janki II. The cornerstone ceremony initiating the project took place on 23 March, and completion of the investment is scheduled for July 2017.
Panattoni Europe is to develop another project for DSV Solutions, a company specialising in comprehensive warehouse logistics solutions. This time, a new logistics centre will be built in Pęcice, Michałowice commune (Warsaw region), as part of Panattoni Park Janki II. The facility will be erected on a 7.17 ha site and will total 25,000 sqm, including 1,100 sqm of office space. The project will feature LED lighting, an intelligent secure system, as well as a mezzanine and an above-standard number of parking spaces for both cars and trucks. The tenant will be able to launch operations from the new venue as early as July 2017. The lease was mediated by experts from JLL, and the general contractor of the investment is Kajima Poland.
“In the last few years DSV Solutions has been growing dynamically, which has created a need for new warehouse space. The investment in Pęcice is a modern logistics centre which will enable us to provide for all logistics processes: from planning and warehouse operations to stock management and distribution. The new facility will take over operations from our site in Warszawa Włochy and will also be the home of the DSV Solutions management office” – says Maciej Walenda, CEO of DSV Solutions.
The project in Pęcice is another lease transaction between Panattoni Europe and DSV Group, bringing the total space covered by these transactions to 127,000 sqm once it is completed. The other significant investments in the Warsaw area are based in Teresin, where the company occupies 36,300 sqm, Janki – 25,000 sqm and in Pruszków – 11,200 sqm. Moreover, DSV Group leases space in Łódź, Krakow, Gdańsk, Wrocław and Czeladź, and outside of Poland – in the Czech Republic, where Panattoni Europe delivered 36,424 sqm. Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director at Panattoni Europe comments: “DSV Group is a key client for us. Such a large number of investments delivered for a global leader in transport and logistics services is definitely something to be proud of. Our first transaction together was more than 10 years ago. Since then our relationship has continued to develop, confirming the quality of our services, flexibility and collaborative approach. Such a long-term relationship gives us exceptional insight into DSV’s needs, which in turn enables us to identify the best solutions for their business.”
The facility in Pęcice, part of Panattoni Park Janki II, will add another point on the map of contract logistics locations in Poland, and at the same time, another one in the Warsaw area. The new logistics centre will be situated near the intersection of ul. Sokołowska and ul. Piachy, which guarantees a fast and convenient connection to the national road S8, linking up with the A2 motorway. Such a location will facilitate the logistics processes carried out by DSV Solutions: with the optimal conditions for distribution to the Warsaw market, Central Poland and all of Europe.
