The Panattoni Park Cheb East industrial zone is characterized, among other things, by high-quality transport accessibility. This was also one of the reasons why the first building in the new premises was taken over by a company from the automotive sector, which will use it to streamline its logistics chain and reduce its global carbon footprint.

“I am very pleased that we have handed over the keys to the first building in the new Panattoni Park Cheb East. This is another of a series of projects supporting the economic transformation of the Karlovy Vary Region. This construction proves our ability to provide top logistics solutions to clients, moreover in a short time horizon. I would like to emphasize that heat pumps are used to heat the hall, which confirms the current trend of moving away from fossil fuels and the overall decarbonization of the industry," says Klára Sobotková, regional development director at Panattoni.

The mentioned industrial park is located near traffic arteries, such as the E42 road connecting Prague with Nuremberg or the connection to the D5 highway leading from Prague to Rozvadov. In addition, there is also a railway corridor leading from Prague to Nuremberg, supplemented by a railway connection with the border regions of Germany and the Czech Republic. Just 54 kilometers from the site, there is also a container terminal in Hof, from where there are direct trains to ports in the North and Baltic Seas. Karlovy Vary International Airport can be reached within a 45-minute drive.

“The investment in development for this global company is a nice example of several key trends that support the industrial real estate segment's move towards a more sustainable Europe. On the one hand, we can observe ambitious visions of companies to bring production and supply closer to target markets, while at the same time saving the planet. Or, as in the case of this tenant, to produce as much as possible from sustainable materials and develop new technological solutions. Thanks to this, space is created for the implementation of plans for the creation and expansion of the portfolio of modern and green industrial zones," comments Jiří Stránský, Accolade development director.

The new hall at Panattoni Park Cheb East is designed with an emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency. It will aim to achieve the highest level of assessment under the BREEAM New Construction certification at the Outstanding level. As with all new buildings in the Panattoni and Accolade portfolio, measures aimed at saving electricity, heating and water are no exception. Its sustainable elements include, for example, the possibility of installing photovoltaic panels on the roof, economical heating provided by heat pumps and underground gray water tanks. In addition, charging stations for electric cars will be available in the outdoor parking lot, and there are green areas with grass, bushes and trees all around the hall.
