CBRE Switzerland publishes office market reports for Q4 2017

With a total of 591,000 sq m at the end of 2017, the availability of office space in Basel, Berne, Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich remained stable compared to Q2 2017 (586,000 sq m). The availability rate amounts to 3.4% for the five cities together, whereby the highest value can be reported for Geneva (5.5%) and the lowest for Basel (2.4%). The development pipeline still is promising, and the renovation of existing properties has been pushed especially in Zurich. Whereas for most core cities hardly any increase in availability must be expected over the next years, we assume that this will not be the case for the agglomerations of Zurich and especially Geneva due to the many development projects under way.
