Panattoni building for Amazon in Neu-Ulm

  • Distribution centre with approx. 6,700 m² of floor space
  • Panattoni revitalising approx. 20,000 m² site
  • Completion is scheduled for end of 2021

Panattoni, the leading project developer for industrial and logistics properties in Europe, is developing a distribution centre for the online retailer Amazon in Neu-Ulm, Bavaria, Germany. The site is around 1.5 km from the town centre and enjoys excellent connections to the A7 federal autobahn, the B10 federal road and local public transport services. Amazon will use the premises to facilitate its last-mile logistics.

Panattoni is converting the approx. 20,000 m² site to create 4,181 m² of logistics space and 2,571 m² of office space. The building, which will span a total surface area of around 6,700 m², is being constructed in line with requirements for Gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and will have a clear internal height of 10 m. The site will also feature a covered car park with a total of 192 van parking spaces, with EV charging facilities planned for some of these. A further 58 outdoor parking spaces will also be provided on the site. Finningerstrasse S-Bahn station is also just 800 m away.

“We are delighted to be opening a distribution centre in Neu-Ulm that contains more than 20 years of logistical expertise, technological progress and investment in transport infrastructure. It will enable Amazon to offer customers faster and more flexible delivery options,” commented Martin Andersen, Director of Amazon Logistics in Germany.

Panattoni started construction work in early 2021, with completion scheduled for the end of 2021. Intensive ground surveys and extensive demolition work have been required as part of the revitalisation project. This property will be the seventh that Panattoni has completed for Amazon in Germany since 2019. The developer has already built distribution centres in Kaltenkirchen, north of Hamburg, Knüllwald near Kassel, Magdeburg, and in the Jade-Weser-Park.

Commenting on the project, Fred-Markus Bohne, Managing Partner at Panattoni, said: “We are developing a new location for Amazon in Neu-Ulm that will boast an attractive location in an established commercial zone with outstanding connections to the town centre and federal autobahns. The town will benefit from revitalisation of this brownfield site and the creation of more than hundred jobs.”
