Switzerland Office Market – 2020
JLL‘s comprehensive research report on the Swiss office market.
The office occupier market again developed positively last year, despite a slight increase in supply. Despite being quite heterogeneous, submarkets have in common that demand for the most central locations has increased again, both in the rental as well as investment markets.
The study contains chapters on the markets in Zurich, Geneva, Bern, Lausanne, Basel and Zug as well as articles on various focus topics such as the value drivers of office rents in Zurich, the impact of the development boost in Geneva on rents and vacancies, and the rationality of low returns which investors accept when purchasing core properties. It also provides a derivation of the profitability of flex-space concepts for users and owners as well as thoughts on a scenario with very low long-term negative interest rates.
