The Hungarian branch of the global developer Panattoni is going to build a 64,000 sqm logistics complex near the Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport at the junction of the M0/M5 motorways. The facility, planned to be delivered in two phases is scheduled to open next year.

The new logistics complex is expected to obtain the BREEAM "Excellent" certification, so it meets the highest sustainability standards. The company is committed to achieving net zero operational carbon emissions from all new developments by 2025. This commitment includes the project of Gyál.

Sustainability is already at the heart of the construction process: with land extraction and filling – some 103,000 m3 of land – being optimised to minimise the amount of land taken in and out, reducing the associated emissions. Runner plants will be planted on the southern façade of the building. Inside, large windows will be installed and smart energy management systems (electricity, water) will be introduced by the developer, while trees and shrubs will be planted on 50 per cent of the site with wildflower grassing among them. 

The green area of the complex will be around 34,000 sqm with the explicit aim of achieving biodiversity and protecting the ecosystem. Green transport solutions are also favoured with electric vehicle charging stations and bicycle storage.
