Facts About Prologis Park Datteln
WELL Certificate Gold
Datteln is close to the A2 motorway, and the Castrop-Rauxel motorway entrance ramp is less than 4 kilometers from the distribution center. Datteln also has a rail connection, and Dortmund Airport is only 32 kilometers from the facility. With its location in the northern Ruhr area, Prologis Park Datteln is in the immediate vicinity of numerous conurbations with many qualified employees.
The air and water quality in the facility is monitored continuously. The building offers a "living zone" with a special lighting and ventilation for employees. There are a total of six monitors throughout the building that provide information about air and water quality, indoor and outdoor climate, electricity and gas consumption, and public transport departure times.
Whereas building rating systems such as BREEAM assess the environmental performance of buildings, the WELL Building Standard focuses on building design and management that enhances employee health and quality of life in the work environment. Incorporating health and well-being into building design is an example of Prologis’ long-term focus and innovative approach to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance—and of how these factors are integrated fully into our business strategy.
Focusing on the well-being of employees inside warehouses aligns with our sustainability and business objectives, as well as our ambitions to raise the standards for logistics buildings.
Shifting toward a more human-centric approach leads to insights that give Prologis buildings an extra competitive edge.

The Person at the Center: Our WELL Building Projects
Even before its completion in September 2020, Prologis found a customer for the speculative project in Datteln: the online retailer EUZIEL International GmbH. During the final phase of development Prologis worked closely with the client to adapt the facility to their needs.
In February 2020, Prologis started with the speculative construction of a 27,800 square meter logistics facility in Datteln in the northern Ruhr area. The focus of the development is on employee satisfaction. From October 2020, the space will be available for rent to customers.
For the first time the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) has awarded a gold certificate for a fully equipped logistics building in operation. Prologis had developed the 25,800 square meter custom-made facility for Pantos Logistics.
