Panattoni leases 85,000 sqm in Wrocław Campus 39




Panattoni is launching Wrocław Campus 39, its largest project in Lower Silesia. The developer has already leased almost 85,000 sqm of the park to two tenants – 78,000 sqm of which will be used for e-commerce. Currently, 160,000 sqm is under construction, half of which will be ready in September this year. Campus Wrocław 39 will eventually offer 200,000 sqm and is to be BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified.

This September Panattoni will complete the first 80,000 sqm section of the Wrocław Campus 39 complex. The park is located close to one of Amazon’s distribution centres and to where Korean conglomerate LG operates the largest electric car lithium-ion battery plant in Europe. First leases having already been signed. A total of 78,000 sqm will be used by the e-commerce sector for distribution to a number of European markets. The complex is also ideal for logistics – one of the leading companies in this sector has leased a 6,000 sqm cross-dock facility in the park. Eventually, Wrocław Campus 39 will offer 200,000 sqm.

“As online retail across Europe continues to boom, the first huge lease has now been signed at Wrocław Campus 39 and we expect more to follow,” comments Damian Kowalczyk the Development Director of Panattoni, who adds: “The average revenues generated by the European e-commerce sector will grow by 5.16% by 2025. The seemingly unstoppable expansion of this segment has prompted the largest players to seek out locations with real pan-European potential, from which they can supply more than one market. Therefore, Wrocław Campus 39 is an excellent choice for e-commerce, having the advantages of being close to the A4 motorway and S8 expressway, along with its access to a qualified workforce, and for the fact that the region enjoys the perfect business development environment.”

Wrocław has been ranked first by fDi Magazine among Polish cities and fifteenth in the world in terms of its investment potential, which is benefiting the entire region. In addition, Panattoni’s largest complex in the area has good connections to the most important urban centres in both Poland and across Europe. The nearby A4 motorway provides an efficient route to both Upper Silesia and Kraków, as well as to Berlin and Ukraine. The S8 expressway, which connects the complex with Warsaw, Łódź and Prague, is also nearby. Moreover, an international airport is located just 15 minutes from the park. 

In 2020 alone, Polish consumers spent €15.3 billion on online purchases, an increase of 31.4% on 2019 and 2.5 times higher than the European average. According to PwC, the value of the Polish e-commerce market will increase from approximately PLN 100 billion in 2020 to PLN 162 billion by 2026.

Wrocław Campus 39 will ultimately comprise five buildings designed for both warehousing and light production, approximately 14,000 sqm of which will be used as office space. The entire project, which is to be BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified, will be equipped with a range of sustainability and well-being features. These will include systems for limiting the water, energy and heat consumption, and others for significantly reducing CO2 emissions; while those employed in the park will have access to green relaxation zones, bicycle facilities and electric car charging stations.
