Key Highlights

  • The Europe office real estate market is poised to register a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period (2023 - 2028). The performance of the European office real estate market is strongly connected to the growth of the region's economy. Though the European economy is recovering from the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the office real estate industry may take some time to reach normalcy.
  • Occupier demand has slowed, and uncertainty has increased, resulting in a 40% drop in office take-up in 2020 compared to 2019. Offices were not expected to be fully occupied until at least the end of 2021. However, as uncertainty related to the pandemic lessened, take-up was projected to increase by 7% in 2021 over 2020. Barcelona (59% p.a. in 2020-2021), Paris Central Business District (CBD) (52%), Cologne (42%), and Central London (29%) are estimated to see a faster recovery in office leasing activity.

Europe Office Real Estate Market Trends

Offices Remain a Core Sector

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people work, there is still a high demand for office space. According to INREV, a European organization that shares knowledge of the non-listed real estate business, offices are still a favored asset category for European investors, particularly those headquartered in France and Germany.

Prime rents increased by 0.5% on average in Q3 2021, following increases of 0.3% in Q2 2021, and 0.1% in Q1 2021. For the first time since the pandemic in Q2 2020, annual growth has been positive, with rents being 0.3% higher Y-o-Y. No markets saw a decrease in rentals throughout Q3 2021. Yields continue to fall, albeit slowly, with the European prime yield falling by 3 basis points to a new low of 4.16% in the third quarter.

Rise in Rental Prices of Office Properties in European Cities

The office market has historically been the most popular asset type among real estate investors, accounting for 40-50% of the total investment volume. The major share of European investment activity is concentrated in Paris and London, as well as Germany's big four (Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, and Hamburg).

Central Paris garnered EUR 3.8 billion (USD 3.9 Billion) in investments in Q2 2021, which was EUR 500 million (USD 513.7 million) higher than Central London. The London Stock Exchange is one of the world's largest foreign exchange markets, and many major global companies, such as HSBC, BP, Unilever, and Barclays, are headquartered in this region. London's office real estate sector has historically been one of the most competitive, with prime yields as low as 3.5% as of Q3 2020. Yields in Germany's big four were significantly lower, at less than 3%.
