View of the market / by Joris van Gelder

We see that demand for offices and industrial premises is rising among investors and users.

For industrial space at good locations, we are seeing investors and developers who are ready to take the risk of developing and buying. Returns are stable or declining, with rents remaining constant until now. In the offices market we are seeing a clear increase in interest from investors. This trend is clearly associated with strong demand from tenants looking for new premises. In Amsterdam, there is a clear geographical polarisation in demand for the Zuidas area and the area around the central station in the city centre. The relocation of the law courts, the Conservatorium and the library in the central station area has had a definite positive effect on the rental market in the centre. Estadium believes that the arrival of the Noord-Zuidlijn will further increase the interaction of the city centre and the Zuidas, and the attractiveness of these areas will increase.
