“Wrocław Campus is at the centre of one of the most highly developed logistics zones in Europe. International companies are choosing this strategic location since they depend on being able to easily reach many European markets, while maintaining the low operational costs that Poland still offers. Having direct access to the A4 and A8 motorways opens up the German and Austrian client base, which numbers more than 100 million people. Any region with such huge potential will have a huge requirement for industrial space so creating further business clusters such as Wrocław Campus and Wrocław South Logistics Hub in Magnice is only a matter of time”, says Damian Kowalczyk, the Development Director at Panattoni.

Nearby Wrocław Campus lie buildings operated by Amazon and a complex run by the Korean-based company LG, which includes the largest lithium-ion battery factory in Europe.

The next building in Panattoni Wrocław Campus is to be developed in accordance with the high standards of sustainable development and is to be certified under BREEAM for a rating of Excellent. Clients will be able to use intelligent energy management systems, sanitary fittings that limit water usage, and a mechanical ventilation system with high-spec filters. The developer is also to create a green area with outdoor furniture made from ecologically-friendly materials as well as provide electric vehicle charging stations. The office space is to be examined to ensure it has adequate access to natural light as well as to ensure it meets the proper standards for its acoustics and its thermal comfort. An LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) study preceded the development work.

The first stage of Panattoni Wrocław Campus comprising 185,000 sqm was purchased at the beginning of the year by P3 in one of the largest-ever transactions in the Polish commercial real estate market.
