"Focus on local conditions:" Panattoni developing logistics center in Rangsdorf

Interview with Fred-Markus Bohne, Managing Partner, Panattoni

Mr. Bohne, Panattoni is developing Panattoni Park Berlin South in Rangsdorf. What is special about this project?

We are making extensive use of our expertise and experience in this particularly complex project. At Panattoni, it is always particularly important to focus on local conditions despite the international scope of our activities. In Rangsdorf, in particular, we have taken extensive steps to integrate the project into local structures as much as possible. This has included the implementation of infrastructure as well as measures to protect the natural landscape and various species. We have developed the entire 28 hectare property over several years with the property owner. In addition to the extensive restoration of the park's ecologies and the redesign of a 3,000 m² forest, we have installed wood windows made of larch and relocated a local lizard species. In addition, through our participation in the expansion of the local industrial area, we have promoted the settlement of various commercial enterprises from the region.

The logistics center in Rangsdorf is the largest Panattoni project to date that is being built without pre-leasing. What makes this location so special?

It's the combination of location and connections that speak for the location above all else. Berlin-Brandenburg is now one of the country's top regions for logistics and commercial relocations and it's becoming even more important thanks to the new Tesla plant. Due to the direct location on the B96 and the Berlin A10 motorway ring, as well as the proximity to Germany-wide motorways, Panattoni Park has excellent transport connections, which we were able to make even more attractive by implementing various measures to expand traffic optimization. There are also various manufacturing and logistics service companies in the immediate vicinity of the property.

How has Panattoni designed the logistics park? Are there still spaces available?

In total, the park will have four construction phases and a total usable area of 130,000 m², divided into five buildings and 13 units with a useful height of up to 12 m. The first construction phase is already nearing completion. This will create around 50,000 m² of logistics space, including a 44,000 m² production hall, approx. 2,900 m² office space, and a further 2,900 m² mezzanine space. The first lease has already been signed and there are currently still 33,000 m² of logistics space available. Thanks to the flexible usability of the units, not only can users react quickly to the market situation but can also help shape their space themselves.
