Panattoni has started the construction of Panattoni Park Poznań East II with an area of approximately 35,000 square meters. The project will be financed by Santander Bank, allocating a sum of €18 million.

The Poznań region has been a key logistics hub for years, consistently ranking in the top five markets with the largest volume of industrial space. At the end of 2022, Wielkopolska reached a total of 3.5 million square meters, with over 40% developed by Panattoni. The high demand for warehose space provided by developers in the region drives further investments - Santander Bank will allcoate over 80 million PLN for the implementation of Panattoni Park Poznań East II in Robakowo. Within the planned facility with an area of approximately 35,000 square meters, Geodis, a global player in transportation and logistics, has already leased space and will commence operations in October of this year.

"The excellent location of Poznań, halfway between two key economic centres in Europe - Warsaw and Berlin - attracts dozens of industries, including e-commerce and logistics. There is immense potential for businesses here, as well as a large area for further regional development, which attracts the attention of financial institutions seeking to invest in the region. We thank Santander Bank for their trust and fruitful cooperation. The interest in the new park already demonstrates that it is worthwhile to participate in its development," says Karina Trojańska, Chief Financing & Operating Officer at Panattoni.

Panattoni Park East II has Excellent-level environmental certification from BREEAM. Another advantage of the park is its location, providing good access to the most important areas in Poland. Furthermore, it serves as an distribution point towards Western Europe and Scandinavia. The facility is located near the A2 highway, and in close proximity, the investment site intersects with the S11 expressway (Poznań Krzesiny junction), allowing travel from Silesia to Pomerania, as well as the S5 highway (Poznań Wschód junction) connecting the capital of Wielkopolska with Wrocław in the south and Bydgoszcz in the north.
