According to the report prepared by KPMG, the office and retail properties arouse the greatest interest among investors in Central and Eastern Europe. The investments in such structures reached 7,7 billion euro.
Except for office and retail areas, we have also observed crucial investments in the industrial and logistic sectors. Especially it concerns the building of warehouse halls. This trend will be maintaining in 2015 mainly thanks to development of e-commerce. More and more people are doing online shopping which makes that logistic companies have to meet high expectations and they are forced to make new investments. The investors will be also concentrating on shopping malls of a convenience type in accordance with trends which are popular particularly in the USA – says Honorata Green, partner in KPMG in Poland.
The most popular investment destination among all countries of the CEE region turned out to be Poland. However, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary were also highly rated.
