Panattoni Europe, industrial real estate leader in Europe, is growing its capital market structures. The team has been joined by Michał Stanisławski, taking on a new position of Director Capital Markets Poland. Among other tasks, he will be responsible for managing investor relations, including raising capital for the developer’s dynamically growing investment projects in the country.
The commercial property market in Poland has been booming for several years. Last year, it broke a new record high, with the volume of investment transactions exceeding EUR 7.2 billion. Spectacular growth was observed particularly in the segment of warehouse and industrial real estate – close to 83 per cent growth year-on-year. The trend remains strong this year. In the first half of 2019, a record-breaking 1.1 million sqm of space was commissioned, of which nearly 0.45 million sqm was delivered by Panattoni Europe. “The strong activity in the warehouse market is a result of significant expansion in the e-commerce sector, which enhances the appeal of that market and attracts increasing attention from investors, including those from abroad. That is why close and successful cooperation between Panattoni and capital partners and investors in logistics real estate in Poland is crucial. Michał Stanisławski’s competence in this area is unquestionable” – says Karina Trojańska, Chief Financing & Operating Officer – Poland, Panattoni Europe.
