Panattoni Europe commenced the construction of a large-scale logistics centre for BSH Sprzęt Gospodarstwa Domowego. The BTS (built-to-suit) facility with 79,000 sqm and its own railway siding will be delivered in Łódź. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on 30 May, and construction works are scheduled for completion in spring 2018.
The large-scale BTS (built-to-suit) facility is set to total 79,000 sqm, which will be divided into the warehousing section of 77,000 sqm and the office section which will take up 1,700 sqm. The investment will feature its own railway siding which will make it possible to rail freight the majority of production earmarked for exports. The railway station comprising a platform running the entire length of the facility (590 m) will be put inside the building. Moreover, the building will feature a special ramp system, LED lighting, as well as additional skylights and facade windows, to maximise access to natural light.
The new investment will become part of BSH BTS, located at ul. Jędrzejowska. The facility will stand right next to the A1 – the only Polish motorway running north-south. It will be just 30 km away from the Łódź Północ junction, where the A1 and A2 motorways intersect.
