"The transformation of a brownfield into a modern industrial park is, on the one hand, always an unpredictable adventure and, on the other hand, a fascinating experience, mainly for two reasons. First, you have a unique opportunity to get to know the story of the original operation - in this case, the largest domestic manufacturer of cooking glass. And on the one hand, you find yourself in a kind of recycling laboratory, in which the circular economy can be moved to new frontiers in practice. In Hostomice, for example, we want to use the old recycling line for building materials when preparing the foundations,“ reveals Pavel Sovička, Panattoni's director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
"Every year, infrastructure for modern business plays a more important role in the lives of us all. It makes us happy that in Hostomice we can continue another project of revitalization of the old area and breathe not only new life into it, but also meaning. We are on a clear path to investing in the construction of environmentally friendly buildings and the world around us. Thanks to this, today we have one of the greenest portfolios in the world, in which a high share of regeneration of old brownfields with a long industrial tradition plays a crucial role. Last but not least, our investments together with our tenants in the Czech regions bring new economic strength and opportunities for their further development," commented Milan Kratina, CEO of the Accolade Group.
Panattoni plans to gradually build a complex of buildings with a total area of 31,000 m2 near Hostomice. Accolade will invest the entire project. The first phase will create a building for Sanitino with an area of 5,800 m2. At the beginning of next year, it will remove the remains of the foundation structures of the original complex and will start groundworks for the new building. The remaining space is rehabilitated and connected only according to the interest of other clients. Sanitino will operate a central warehouse for supplying Central and Western Europe on the site. The semi-automatic hall will have the latest logistics technologies.
"We chose Panattoni Park Teplice South, among other things, because of the excellent transport infrastructure, which was enhanced by the recently completed D8 motorway, which is only 15 minutes away. The central warehouse will help us deliver goods to the markets in Central and Western Europe faster and more efficiently, ”says Rudolf Jániš, CEO of Sanitino.
The Panattoni Park Teplice South complex is located directly at the exit from the partially four-lane road I/13, which connects the Ústí nad Labem region with the Liberec and Karlovy Vary regions. Due to the fact that it is created by revitalizing the brownfield, it does not occupy fertile soil and, in addition, helps to remove old ecological burdens in the locality. Last but not least, the project has the potential to boost the regional economy in the coming economic crisis and stop the outflow of skilled labor.
