CBRE arranged Incyte’s 800 sq m lease in a new, state-of-the-art building in Geneva, an international business and life science hub. The premises will provide a modern working environment for the Incyte employees.
Die Schweiz bleibt attraktiv für die Expansion.
Der Expansionshunger nach physischen Ladenflächen (“brick and mortar stores“) der international aktiven Detailhändler ist ungebrochen. Dies zeigt eindrucksvoll die aktuelle Studie „How Active Are Retailers Globally 2015“ des Immobilienberatungsunternehmens CBRE, bei der über 100 globale Retailer nach deren Expansionszielen für 2015 befragt wurden.
In Zurich, around 328,000 sq m office space was available at the end of Q4 2014. David Schoch, Head of Research at CBRE’s Zurich office, comments: “When we compare this to the preceding quarters, we have seen a decrease for the first time since Q3 2012 (from 347,000 sq m in Q3 2014). This tendency can also be seen in the Central Business District (CBD) where the available office space has dropped from 122,000 sq m in Q3 2014 to 117,000 sq m in Q4 2014. This tendency can mainly be traced back to the fact that smaller companies have more and more started to fill the gaps large occupiers have left behind. The Zurich vacancy rates are expected to stabilize within the next quarters.”
