Regional markets on investors’ radar

Investors are showing a growing interest in regional markets, such as Kraków, Wrocław, Łódź, Poznań, Tricity and Katowice – according to Colliers International and Deloitte Legal report entitled "Polish regional markets as investment product", which outlines trends and investment opportunities on office, retail and warehouse real estate markets in Poland’s 6 key cities.

According to Colliers International research, 30 transactions totaling EUR 1.5 bn were concluded on Poland’s commercial real estate market in H1 2017. This was the second best half year result during the last 9 years. Most active investors in Poland were funds located or managed from the US (29 pct market share), the United Kingdom (18 pct), Germany (16 pct) and the Republic of South Africa (13 pct).

In H1 2017, investors were most active in the retail properties sector, where over EUR 900 m was invested (60 pctmarket share). The biggest transaction on this market was the acquisition of four IKEA retail parks for EUR 220 m by a fund managed by Pradera.

The hotel investment volume amounted to historical record of EUR 340 m and 23% market share. Five hotels (over 1,000 rooms) belonging to Warimpex were sold to U City in a transaction worth ca. EUR 120 m. This was the largest single investment transaction in the hotel sector in Poland. Another significant transaction was the acquisition of Sheraton hotel in Kraków by Invesco for EUR 70 m.

The office sector had 17 pct market share (EUR 260 m). No significant investment deals in the industrial sector were noted in H1 2017. However, Colliers International experts expect that the volume in this sector in 2017 will be high as several deals are at advanced negotiations stage.
