Prop­er­tyEU: Panat­toni con­firms top rank in Europe

For the sev­enth time in a row, Panat­toni is being dis­tin­guished as Europe’s largest indus­tri­al and logis­tics prop­er­ty devel­op­er in the Prop­er­tyEU rank­ing. The indus­try sur­vey assess­es the lead­ing Euro­pean actors based on their respec­tive­ly erect­ed sur­face areas from 2020 to 2022. The projects cur­rent­ly in devel­op­ment and the invest­ment vol­ume are also tak­en into account.

Panat­toni, the lead­ing project devel­op­er for indus­tri­al and logis­tics prop­er­ties in Europe, took first place in the Prop­er­tyEU rank­ing with a com­plet­ed sur­face area of more than eight mil­lion m² in 302 projects. That means, dur­ing the observed peri­od, the devel­op­ment com­pa­ny devel­oped three times more sur­face area than the sec­ond place. In addi­tion, more than four mil­lion m² are cur­rent­ly in devel­op­ment in 119 prop­er­ty projects with an invest­ment of just under five bil­lion euros. 

On the Ger­man mar­ket, Panat­toni has a well-filled project pipeline with a total vol­ume of more than 615,000 m² of floor space. Panat­toni Ger­many is cur­rent­ly devel­op­ing, among oth­er things, build-to-suit (BTS) projects for the Fress­napf Group in Neu­rup­pin, Bran­den­burg, for the fam­i­ly-owned com­pa­ny Dachser SE in Rot­ten­burg, Baden-Wuert­tem­berg, for the Kühne+Nagel Group in Meck­len­burg-West­ern Pomera­nia and for the Bruck­er freight for­ward­ing com­pa­ny in Schwäbisch Gmünd. In Det­tel­bach, Bavaria, Panat­toni recent­ly com­plet­ed new logis­tics cen­tres for the fash­ion com­pa­ny S.OLIVER and the logis­tics ser­vice provider Dachser SE. 

In Kön­nern, Sax­ony-Anhalt, the com­pa­ny is cur­rent­ly plan­ning to devel­op a pio­neer­ing new con­struc­tion project with four mod­ern com­mer­cial plots. The new Panat­toni Park Halle (Saale) North is slat­ed to pro­vide users a total of 159,000 m² of usable space, dis­trib­uted across 17 units in four ware­hous­es. Fur­ther plots at attrac­tive loca­tions in Ger­many will be announced in the com­ing months. 

Panat­toni is also work­ing at full capac­i­ty to pro­mote the urban busi­ness parks built accord­ing to the “City Dock” con­cept and is cur­rent­ly con­struct­ing two of the busi­ness parks in Mannheim and Sin­delfin­gen (both in Baden-Wuert­tem­berg). The start of con­struc­tion on both projects is immi­nent. With inno­v­a­tive cam­pus projects in Hanover, the cap­i­tal of Low­er Sax­ony, and in Berlin, the devel­op­er is also cre­at­ing solu­tions for the lack of space in urban zones and is link­ing the con­cepts of the Panat­toni Parks and City Docks at excel­lent locations. 

At the trans­port logis­tic, the inter­na­tion­al trade show for logis­tics, mobil­i­ty, IT and sup­ply chain man­age­ment, which will take place from May 9th to 12th, 2023, on the Munich Exhi­bi­tion Cen­tre grounds, the devel­op­er will receive its part­ners and cus­tomers with eight nation­al branch­es. Panat­toni will have rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Den­mark, the Czech Repub­lic, Slo­va­kia, Swe­den, Poland, the Nether­lands, Aus­tria and Ger­many. Over the course of the four trade show days, the objec­tive is to dis­cuss cur­rent busi­ness devel­op­ments and find solu­tions for urgent sus­tain­abil­i­ty require­ments. With 2,300 exhibitors from 67 coun­tries, the lead­ing trade show has near­ly returned to pre-COVID atten­dance and, from the exhibitor side, is more inter­na­tion­al than ever. 

“As the largest devel­op­er on the Ger­man and Euro­pean mar­kets, we cur­rent­ly have a num­ber of projects with excit­ing cus­tomers and part­ners at attrac­tive loca­tions. We are excit­ed about and look­ing for­ward to the con­ver­sa­tions at the trans­port logis­tic which will once again be ana­log. We have a lot planned and want to sup­port com­pa­nies in their opti­mi­sa­tion and growth by offer­ing inno­v­a­tive and sus­tain­ably con­struct­ed projects. Fur­ther­more, it is very impor­tant to us that we imag­ine the fur­ther path toward cli­mate neu­tral­i­ty,” says Fred-Markus Bohne, Man­ag­ing Part­ner at Panat­toni Ger­many and Austria. 

With its Green Build­ing con­cept and an expert group found­ed by Panat­toni that focus­es on the imple­men­ta­tion of the ESG sus­tain­abil­i­ty cri­te­ria on the com­pa­ny lev­el and in the indi­vid­ual prop­er­ty projects, Panat­toni is tak­ing con­crete steps to achieve holis­tic sus­tain­abil­i­ty with­in the com­pa­ny. The devel­op­er decid­ed to com­plete­ly do with­out harm­ful, fos­sil ener­gy sources and exclu­sive­ly use air-heat pumps in the future, pro­tect water resources even more effec­tive­ly and inten­si­fy the recy­cling of demo­li­tion mate­ri­als. Since 2022, the com­pa­ny has sup­port­ed the Deutsche Brown­field Ver­band (Ger­man Brown­field Asso­ci­a­tion) in the devel­op­ment of Germany’s first Brown­field reg­is­ter and has pro­vid­ed an advi­so­ry board rep­re­sen­ta­tive since March 2023.
