Zurich : CBD continues to suffer - Q3 2014

Published on

A research produced by DTZ

Despite an ever more obvious lack in sufficient demand for large-scale vacancy in the CBD, landlords are failing to further correct asking rents and the tenant’s strong position in negotiations is shown more strongly in lengthening rent-free periods and other initial incentives. Given traditional CBD occupiers’ continuing trend for cost-cutting and decentralisation, demand is not expected to improve so dramatically as to avoid a further reduction in prime rents and essentially a closing of the gap between prime location rents and prime property rents in secondary locations which have traditionally stood at least CHF 200-300 / sq m lower.

Switzerland remains in a stronger economic position than other parts of Europe but signs of stagnation have unexpectedly returned in the second and third quarters of 2014.
