The City - March 2012

From the idea to realisation.

According to Ernst & Young’s report “As one door shuts, another opens”, it is still worth to invest in real estates. 7 European investors out of 10 believe that the debt crisis in the Eurozone will decrease the interest in real estate. More than a half think that the banks will be less eager to grant credits and mortgages. Despite that investors still believe that, in the long-run, European real estate markets are an attractive capital investment. These opinions are largely confirmed by experts present on the meeting in the Property talks cycle.  You might read the account of that meeting in this issue.

Investors are increasingly worried by both government solvency, and the resulting affect that attempts at austerity will have on their private sectors…….45

Office in post-industrial areas in 2012 – the standard or a new trend?
A survey, in which 463 Polish towns (over a half of municipalities in the country) took place in 1998, has shown that unused post-industrial areas were present in most large and mediumsized cities. After 14 years time, the post-industrial landscape in most agglomerations was replaced with modern office areas.. ……….46

Thriving market
