Panattoni, the most active industrial real estate developer in the world, finalised the sales of twelve industrial parks across Poland in 2023. The total combined value of the transactions comes to ca. EUR 500 million.
The completion of these transactions proves the high quality of the investment product created by Panattoni as well as the dominant position of the industrial sector in relation to the rest of the real estate market. In 2023, Panattoni dispositions accounted for 50% of the industrial transaction volume in Poland while the total country’s investment volume reached around EUR 2 bn.
“Last year, Panattoni in Poland closed ca. half a billion euro of asset dispositions volume, once again demonstrating the long-term strength of our industry. However, prospects for the coming quarters remain our key focus. Further capital liquidity improvement is relying on stabilising financing cost prognosis and many investors have raised significant amounts of equity that has not yet been deployed yet. The buyers are monitoring the market for the investment product fitting into their strategies. The market in Poland is based on solid fundamentals and is particularly attractive comparing to the rest of Europe. The country’s strategic location, its well-developed infrastructure, its highly skilled workforce and also its modern stock of ESG-compliant centres combine into a long-term growth advantage. This strength is noticed by the international capital.” comments Michał Stanisławski, the Head of Asset Disposition at Panattoni.
