“This number exceeds the cumulated value of the last two years and also the record number from 2010 – the most active year in the crises period, when the investment registered EUR 543 million”, says the company’s representatives.
“The industrial and logistics segment registered a significant evolution in 2014 and we believe the trend will be maintained in the following period too. The request for this segment has increased in 2014 with approx. 30 pct., and the deliveries have tripled compared to the previous year: 99,200 sq. m rented in 2014, compared to 33,000 sq. m in 2013. The interest for the local market shows positive signs for 2015, two important projects being scheduled for completion this year: Helios Phoenix (25,000 sq. m) and a project in Northern Bucharest (20,000 sq. m)”, also said the representatives of the real estate consultant.
On the industrial and logistics segment 2014 was more active both considering the rental request and the investments. Romania starts to be more and more attractive due to the regional developers’ activity which can offer solutions for the entire CEE region.
“Romania’s main challenge is to convince the existing companies as well as the new entries to invest in expansions or new office openings. The industrial and logistics spaces stock has increased with approx. 100,000 sq. m in 2014, but this volume cannot cover the entire demand existing on the market. Considering the specialized companies’ growing interest on one hand, as well as the volume, almost unchanged of spaces on the other hand, the activity on the industrial and logistics market could be though limited”, said The Advisers representatives.
