The strong investment transaction volume recorded in 2016 demonstrates that Poland remains a favoured destination among international investors in spite of concerns over the political situation and significant pipeline in the office and logistics markets. Ultimately, the strong economic fundamentals continue to underpin strong growth which has manifested itself in record years of net absorption in both sectors which has largely resulted in virtually all new space being leased. The EUR 4.5 billion traded was a post crisis record and activity was witnessed across sectors with office and retail dominating.

We are expecting that the situation on the Polish investment market will remain positive in 2017 and will be stimulated mostly by strong occupational markets across all sectors, relatively high yields and the high quality of available assets on the market. Besides international capital, we see increasing interest from CEE funds which are planning to enter the Polish market.
