500,000 sqm by end of 2002

It is anticipated that supply of Class A warehouse space within a 20-km radius of Warsaw will reach 500,000 sqm by the end of 2002, according to CB Richard Ellis's recent Market Index brief. The figure was around 475,000 sqm at the beginning of the year. The beginning of 2002 has shown the vacancy rate continue to fall and at publication of the brief the figure was around 25%. Predictions are for the figure to fall to around 15% by the end of the year as less stock comes on the market. The trend, according to CBRE, is for occupier space requirements within Warsaw to be for units between 1,500 sqm and 3,000 sqm with a high office content of over 15%, and a minimum ceiling height of 9 metres. Rent is very much dependent on quality and specification, but falls mainly between USD 5 - 7 sqm.
