The economic downturn on the office market is definitely behind us. The entire sector has seen a clear upturn in 2017. Better alignment between supply and demand over the last few years has created a more stable market. The continuing economic recovery is leading to a more dynamic office market. Increasing productivity and staffing is increasing demand among companies for more space and is leading to improvements being made in the quality of the stock. However, a high quality supply must be created at current locations if the quality demands of commercial property users are to be met. To date, the market dynamics are only apparent to a limited extent in new developments. Furthermore, 2017 has shown that the Dutch office market is moving at different speeds. The large centres in the Randstad are clearly leading the pack, and this year they are forging even further ahead. The forecasts may be just as positive in other regions, but the speed is less dramatic.
