Newport Logistic Fund celebrates the ground-breaking ceremony for Panattoni Park Ennshafen

Newport Logistics Fund, a Private Equity Real Estate fund that finances full investment cycle warehouse developments in Europe, celebrates the start of its second investment in Austria, the Panattoni Park Ennshafen. The construction work in Enns began with a ground-breaking ceremony on April 30th.

The new commercial, industrial, and logistics park in Enns is being built on a 65,000 m² site in the Ennshafen industrial area near Linz. Upon completion, the park will hold gross floor area of approximately 41,000 m², comprising roughly 35,000 m² of hall space, 3,000 m² of office space, and 3,000 m² of mezzanine space. The building’s height is 10.50 metres below ground level, and over 100 car parking spaces are slated for the outdoor areas.

The adaptable utilization concept will comprise variably divisible rental units, starting from 3,000 m² in size, making it the ideal choice for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and industrial purposes. Due to its proximity to Linz (and to Voestalpine), the location is particularly well-suited for users from the metal and steel processing, food, automotive, chemical, and transport sectors.

The investment project is targeting the DGNB Gold Standard certification, and therefore, is implementing a range of comprehensive sustainability measures. These measures entail the installation of a photovoltaic system on the rooftop of the property, the incorporation of greening initiatives in the outdoor areas, and the use of district heating or a heat pump in energy supply. Furthermore, the blueprint includes plans to establish bicycle shelters, electric charging points, and a mobility concept with a cycle path and bus connections.

The property was acquired in collaboration with Business Upper Austria- OÖ Wirtschaftsagentur GmbH. The project is being developed together with the general contractor Goldbeck Rhomberg. The real estate space is being marketed by the consultant EUREA Real Estate GmbH.
