Pace of warehouse occupancy take-up slows down amid growing concerns over automotive industry

Numerous newly constructed storage facilities built without confirmed tenants have experienced extended vacancies lasting for six months or longer. This phenomenon, unheard of for years in the Czech Republic, has even led to a slight dip in average rents in some regions. After factoring in the lengthening rent-free periods, rising vacancy rate, and a growing trend towards subletting, everything points to the third quarter confirming a slowdown in momentum on the domestic industrial property market. This is the finding of an analysis conducted on indicative data by the Czech real estate and consulting company 108 REAL ESTATE. In the reporting period from July to September, gross demand totalled 158,867 sq m, with net demand at a mere 122,186 sq m. This record low quarterly result is the worst in at least four years.

Poland is a hit among developers, tenants and investors of industrial space.

Compared to the Czech Republic, it is four times larger in terms of area and approximately in terms of population. In recent months, it has set an example in many areas of the economy, including the construction, leasing and subsequent sale of industrial space. The supply of commercial real estate is also growing, thanks to massive investment in transport infrastructure and increasing purchasing power. This is most evident in the logistics and manufacturing segment, which has expanded by nearly 2.5 million sqm so far this year to a total of more than 31 million sqm.

Developers plan to build almost 7 million m2 of industrial property. Including on brownfield sites

What do the Karlovy Vary, South Bohemia, Liberec and Ústí nad Labem regions have in common from the perspective of industrial property developers? This is by no means the weakest that construction supply and building activity has been in a long time. Quite the opposite. An analysis by real estate consultancy 108 AGENCY indicates that these four regions – relative to their current capacities – are expected to see the largest increase in new warehouse and manufacturing space in the next few years. Altogether, the consultants have identified development projects in the Czech Republic with a floor area of more than 6.8 million m2, which are in various permit and preparation stages – environmental impact assessment, zoning/building permits, or initial building work. Three developers account for 54% of the planned projects: CTP, Panattoni and Prologis.
