ECONOMIC OVERVIEW

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and its repercussions have significantly deteriorated economic conditions. Due to its reliance on energy imports, Europe is severely affected, and Belgium is no exception. While GDP held up well in the first three quarters of this year, continued high inflation is expected to cause GDP to stagnate in the final quarter of the year and the first quarter of 2023.

Brussels Office

OCCUPIER FOCUS

In Q3, less than 100,000 sq m of take-up was recorded on the Brussels office market which brings the total take-up year to date to 230,000 sq m for 2022.  

INVESTMENT FOCUS

In the third quarter of 2022, EUR 1.07 bn has been invested on the Brussels office market. This represents the best Q3 ever recorded.

OUTLOOK

Triggered by rising inflation, the European Central Bank has delivered two consecutive rate hikes in recent months, totalling 125 bps, and is expected to proceed with more rate increases in the coming months, according to its President.

Regional Office

OCCUPIER FOCUS

Office demand in Flanders has been in line with its average levels in Q3 with 56,000 sq m of take-up recorded, which brings the current total in 2022 to 134,000 sq m. 

INVESTMENT FOCUS

A volume superior to EUR 103 million has been invested in Flanders exclusively in Q3.

OUTLOOK

To counter inflation in the Eurozone, the ECB has raised its policy rate by 50 bps in July, followed by another 75 bps in September, with further raises expected by its President.

Retail

LETTING MARKET

INVESTMENT MARKET

Though remaining at low level, the investment market records slightly better performances than in 2021.

OUTLOOK

Sustainability, environmental performances and ESG are on everyone’s lips since 2 to 3 years.

Industrial

INDUSTRIAL FOCUS

It is doubtful that semi-industrial demand will reach the dizzying heights of 2021, this year. That is not to say the take-up so far this year is poor...

LOGISTICS FOCUS

Post-pandemic increase of demand by retailers (despite the current colossal consumer confidence plunge), manufacturers and other key logistics players has caused well-documented supply chain backlogs, which in a sense are good for logistics real estate.

INVESTMENT FOCUS

Q3 has represented yet another colossal quarter for industrial investments, further building on the record year which was already achieved at the end of H1.

OUTLOOK

To counter inflation in the Eurozone, the ECB has raised its policy rate by 50 bps in July, followed by another 75 bps in September.
