Much speculative office space to enter the Brussels market in 2018
Cushman & Wakefield has been looking at what the Brussels real estate market can expect in 2018. Where take-up is concerned, the level of 390,000 m² it registered in 2017 was slightly down on the previous year, but Cushman expects to see an increase in 2018. As Head of Research Cedric Van Meerbeeck explains, however, the years of 450-500,000 m² of take-up are definitely behind us, and something short of 400,000 m² is likely to be the new norm, even if a handful of substantial transactions could cause a peak from time to time.
