Panattoni has purchased a huge plot in Ruda Śląska in Upper Silesia. The building permit acquired allows for the construction of a park with a total area of 65,000 sqm. The development is to be built in the direct vicinity of the A4 motorway, 15 km from the A1.

“By purchasing more land in the metropolitan area we have demonstrated that we see huge potential in Upper Silesia. The building permit we have acquired shows that the development, which has a superb business location, is going to run smoothly and its access to key transport corridors will allow businesses to operate on a huge scale,” says Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director at Panattoni and he adds: “The pro-business attitude of the local authorities is resulting in a transformation of the region, which is turning from a mining area into a place where such industries as the automotive sector, production and logistics can flourish. By delivering modern industrial space we are trying to further this potential.”.

The development is to undergo BREEAM environmental certification for a rating level of ‘Excellent’. It is to be fitted with energy- and water-saving solutions and the developer is also to ensure that CO2 emissions will be reduced both through optimising the construction process as well as through the technology used within the building. The developer is also to prepare the development with regard to the well-being of the user.
