The Lyon property market has been the leading regional market in France for more than a decade, both in terms of take-up and investment volumes.
Its wide-ranging, transparent markets, diverse players, ex tensive urban projects, renowned architects and the presence of international investors have enabled Lyon to gradually move into another class and have made it one of the strongest Eurocities selected for our study.
Lyon is able to capitaliz e on certain criteria that make it stand out among this group: a strong, diversified industrial fabric, real balance between supply and demand, and effective collaboration between public and private operators - all key factors of success for Lyon as one of the major investment locations in Europe.
Lyon also confirms its new status as a strong Eurocity through the development of major new infrastructure in the urban area, such as the “Parc OL” (ultramodern stadium with a seating capacity of 60 000) or the “Musée des Confluences” (8 50 000 visitors in 2015). In addition to numerous opportunities for economic development such as the privatisation of the Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport, the Turin– Lyon high speed railway or the creation of the “pôle métropolitain”.
We are pleased to announce the publication of the 2016 edition of our “Why invest in Lyon? ” brochure, a reference manual designed for those investors who are new to our market. We will provide an overview of the Lyon region’s economy and principal real estate submarkets before looking in closer detail at the legal and fiscal aspects of property investing in France.
We do hope you find this guide useful and we look forward to business opportunities with you in the future.
