Poland and the Czech Republic accounted for 90% of the EUR 1.25 bn of commercial real estate investment in Central and Eastern Europe during the first half of 2012.
Investment activity was centred on the capital cities. The largest transaction in Poland was the acquisition of CBRE GI and AXA Real Estate of a majority stake in the Zlote Tarasy mixed-use centre in Warsaw for EUR 475 mln. US-based firm L88 Companies acquired the Radio Free Europe-Hagibor office building in Prague for about EUR 75 mln in the largest transaction in the Czech Republic.
A range of international investors are interested in prime assets in Central and Eastern in the second half of the year, but should they remain focused on Warsaw and Prague? PropertyEU's second investment briefing on Central and Eastern Europe seeks to identify whether other markets in the region offer attractive alternatives.
The investment briefing is hosted by CBRE at Henrietta House, Henrietta Place, London, W1 0NB from 8.30 to 10am on Tuesday, 4 September. Registration is complimentary.
