Polish real estate investment volumes will reach €1 bn in the first half of 2013, property adviser Savills has predicted.

According to research published by Savills at MIPIM, an active fourth quarter in 2012 resulted in Poland's highest annual investment volume since 2006 at €2.7 bn, representing 8% year-on-year growth.

With activity expected across all property sectors, the adviser forecasts €1 bn will be transacted in the Polish commercial property market during the first half of 2013.

The firm notes that almost 60% of transactions in 2012 were finalised in the fourth quarter. Of a total 42 deals completed, 22 took place in Q4 2012, amounting to €1.6 bn and including nine transactions of over €100 mln.

Nonetheless, the largest transaction of the year took place in Q1, namely the acquisition by Axa Real Estate and CBRE Property Fund Central Europe of a 77% stake in Zlote Tarasy, a mixed-use complex in Warsaw for €475 mln.

Michal Stepien, senior consultant at Savills Poland, commented: 'Investors put a strong focus on prime assets in 2012, which was reflected in the highest average lot size recorded in the history of Polish commercial property investment market, at €64 mln. Hence, despite a relatively low number of investment transactions in 2012 the volume was the highest since 2006.'
