The new industrial zone will bring billions in investment and up to 2,000 jobs.
The Ostrava City Council has approved the plan to build Panattoni Park Ostrava Airport near Leoš Janáček Ostrava Airport. Panattoni, as the developer, will use the large existing industrial zone with high-quality transport infrastructure. The top industrial premises with an area of 115,000 sq m will have minimal environmental impact. Construction should begin during 2022.
“I see the first Panattoni project in Ostrava as a great responsibility. The local economy has suffered many blows, with the structural ones followed by the Covid blow this year. I believe that, in addition to the proximity of an international airport, future users will appreciate the planned connection to the high-capacity railway siding on the premises, and that Panattoni Park Ostrava Airport will bring the region another necessary impetus. Last but not least, the construction and equipment of the buildings are an opportunity for a number of subcontractors from the Ostrava region,” said Pavel Sovička, Panattoni’s Managing Director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
