Panattoni is expanding in Upper Silesia. The developer has started the construction of Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska III, which will eventually have an area of 70,000 sqm. The project is in the middle of the Silesian conurbation near the A1 and A2 motorways, which will give it excellent connections to the most important towns and cities of both the region and the country.

Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska III is the company's next complex to be built in Upper Silesia. This time, two buildings are to be constructed of 46,561 sqm and 24,489 sqm. The first stage of the construction will include around 50,000 sqm out of over 70,000 that has been planned. The complex is being developed in the very heart of the Silesian conurbation, 5 km from the centre of Ruda Śląska and 16 km from the centre of Katowice.

"The region has a strong local economy, a large population giving it ready access to labour and above all a huge need for more warehousing space. In the first half of 2020 alone, the demand was almost as high as 200,000 sqm and a further 400,000 sqm remained under construction at the start of the second half. We at Panattoni leased out over 85,000 sqm in the first six months,” explains commented Aurelia Rachtan, Senior Development Manager at Panattoni.

The park's design allows for the flexible arrangement of both warehouse and office modules to meet individual needs. The park is to be certified under BREEAM with a rating of 'Very Good'.
