Panattoni, the market leader in industrial real estate in Europe, has announced another Warsaw development, which is to be built on a 1.9 ha site next to the S7 junction with the S8 expressway just a few kilometres from Warsaw's Chopin Airport. City Logistics Warsaw Airport II will have an area of 9,000 sqm and construction work is to begin in August.
City Logistics Warsaw Airport II will be situated just 6 km from Warsaw's Chopin Airport next to the Opacz junction of the S8, which connects to the S7 and forms part of Warsaw's southern bypass. Already the 9,000 sqm project has its first two tenants: a distributor of building materials and a producer of aircraft.
The capital pulls like a magnet. Without doubt one of the most attractive features of City Logistics Warsaw Airport II is its location. The new centre will be just next to the administrative limits of the city. “This greatly eases the final stage of distributing goods, or the so-called 'last mile'. The warehouse's location gives it excellent access to the city's roads including to the new arterial routes leading in and out of Warsaw as well as access to the airport and to capital's huge highly qualified labour force,” says Robert Dobrzycki, CEO Panattoni, before adding: “Warsaw is the largest and most attractive logistics market not only in Poland but also across the entire CEE region.” The Warsaw region has a population of 5.6 mln people and the city includes 75 universities and colleges, in which 250,000 students study. The city also has 140,000 registered companies so it is nothing surprising that the Warsaw region contains 35 pct of Poland's modern logistics and industrial space.
City Logistics Warsaw Airport II will be a modern building with 16 loading docks. Just like every one of Panattoni's new projects, it is to be certified with a rating of 'Very Good' under BREEAM. The logistics centre is to be located near Warsaw's Chopin International Airport (app. 6 km). The huge advantage of the site is its proximity to the Opacz junction of the S8, which gives it an ideal connection with Warsaw as well as the rest of the country. The junction is part of Warsaw's southern bypass where it joins with the S7 (the Tricity – Kraków) and the S8 (Wrocław – Białystok).
