The Amsterdam Zuidas is leading the recovery of the prime rents in the Dutch market, which is comparable to the most important business districts (CBD) in Spain and Italy. In other European markets, like Frankfurt and Paris, stabilization of rents can be observed, while the strong rental increase in the CBD of London is filtering through to other major cities in the UK.
These positive developments are also noticeable in the investment market. The prime office yields on the Zuidas decreased by 20 bps. Due to the great interest in the investment markets this trend is noticeable throughout Europe. By contrast, reflective of the weaker economic prospects, prime office yields rose in Moscow and Kiev.
