Investors still queuing up (Discussion)

Yields for the best office buildings in Poland have fallen below 5 pct and are now bordering on 4.5 pct. What is the lower limit for Polish office buildings? Is 4 pct achievable, as has been the case with retail properties? Where could the capital for acquisitions of Polish assets come from? Germany, the UK and Asia – or elsewhere?

Great expectations (Presentation)

A lively café, a hotel lobby, a quiet corner at home, the co-working space attractive to creative types or even a traditional office space in a glass tower – where do the younger generations (and not only them) most want to work? And how does the latest demographic coming onto the job market want to work? Are their expectations being met – and if so, how?
