Historically large H1 office investment volume

Real estate advisor CBRE has presented the latest developments in the office market in the first half-year of 2016. The MarketView Netherlands Office demonstrates the following:

  • Historically large H1 office investment volume with more than € 2 billion traded;
  • This was partly the result of portfolio transactions – portfolios were responsible for 54% of total office investments;
  • After a slow Q1 office take-up picked up in Q2, but remained somewhat muted;
  • Amsterdam continued to perform well in attracting occupiers, the capital was responsible for almost one third of total nationwide take-up;
  • As a result, the decline in vacancy rates is most pronounced in Amsterdam, putting rental levels under upward pressure;
  • Business services and TMT (technology, media & telecom) were responsible for the largest share in take-up, respectively 31% and 15% of the total take-up.
