Cushman & Wakefield’s Manufacturing Risk Index report shows formerly low-cost locations such as China and India are moving up the value production chain through country-sponsored support of technological adoption.
In early February 2018, Damian Kołata joined the Industrial and Logistics Agency of global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield as an Associate.
Europe’s commercial real estate markets maintained their positive trend across most markets and property types during the fourth quarter of 2018, according to Cushman & Wakefield’s latest DNA of Real Estate report.
At the end of Q3 2018, Poland’s industrial and logistics stock surpassed the 15 million sq m mark following the completion of 1.42 million sq m since the beginning of the year.
The existing set of tools used to support direct investments in Poland is changing. Going forward, this may lead to a reduction in the scale of new projects breaking ground and to changes to project management.
Occupier activity set an all-time high on the Polish industrial market in the first three months of 2018, which pushed the country’s vacancy rate down to its lowest on record. Demand came mostly from e-commerce (24%), logistics operators (23%) and retailers (19%).
The year 2017 saw the greatest amount of industrial space built in Europe in its history – more than 3.7 million sq m. This represents a 68% increase over 2016 and a 55% increase over the existing record dating back to 2007 (an additional 1.2 million sq m). The total industrial space in the region has increased by 17% as a result. Such are the results of a survey conducted by Cushman & Wakefield, a company that has been monitoring the industrial property market in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Romania on a long-term basis.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Manufacturing Risk Index report ranks countries based on a range of risk and cost factors, including political and economic risk, market conditions and labour costs, to provide a comprehensive assessment of the attractiveness of 42 countries worldwide.
The Industrial and Logistics Agency of global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has expanded again in the last few months. It is now the biggest in its history after Kamil Żach and Natalia Lipka joined it.
Warehouse supply hit a record high at the end of Q3 2017. Poland’s industrial stock totalled 12.86 million sq m, which represented an 18% rise year-on-year. Tenant demand remained robust on the country’s core warehouse markets, driven largely by logistics operators whose share in total take-up amounted to 45%.
The Polish Ministry of Economic Development announced plans to amend SEZ legislation long ago. Proposed changes seem very interesting, but will they be implemented without slowing the rapid growth in direct investments in Poland?
At the end of June 2017, Poland’s total warehouse stock stood at nearly 11.8 million sq m. Most of the 707,000 sq m supply was delivered in Bydgoszcz-Toruń (113,000 sq m), Poznań (112,000 sq m) and Central Poland (91,000 sq m).
