Published: Tue Jul 08 2014

With a focus on the country's principal cities of Paris, Marseille and Nice, the BMI Q314 France Real Estate report covers rental market performance in terms of rates and yields across the commercial office, retail and industrial sectors.

After a turbulent 2013, France's commercial real estate sector has shown signs of a return to health in 2014 with noticeable recovery in both leasing activity and investment levels being seen across much of the market.

As was expected, Paris has been the focus of this up-tick in activity. According to reports by Jones Lang LaSalle, investments in the Capital's office segment totalled EUR3bn in Q114, representing a return to 2007 levels. Demand for retail space in the city is also recovering, mirroring a steady improvement in consumer spending. Our in-country sources reporting strong growth at the upper end of the market in particular, including prime locations in the centre of the city.

Longer-term, we expect robust growth in tourist numbers to drive demand for retail space while the hospitality sector also looks set for strong long-term growth. In the industrial sector, a steady improvement over the past few months supports our view that the industrial segment will continue to stabilise over the coming months.

While we maintain a largely positive outlook for commercial real estate over the quarter, we caution that the sector remains vulnerable to external shocks stemming from the local and wider European economy. High unemployment and a fragile export sector will continue to weigh on the minds of the majority of business owners, meaning the momentum is likely to remain with tenants rather than landlords for the foreseeable future.
