“REALLY IN EVERY SEGMENT OF COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSFORMATIONS TO THE SIDE OF PUBLIC FUNCTIONS, WHICH ARE A MIX OF AN INTERESTING MODERN CONSUMER”

Anna Danchenok, Head of Strategic Consulting Practice in the Real Estate Sector of PwC in Russia, discusses the development of different segments of the commercial real estate market, general trends and the future of development. – Can coworking compete with standard offices? – You know, the coworking market occupies about 0.3% of the total supply in the office segment. And even in the USA their share does not exceed 1.5%. Accordingly, it is probably too early to say that this is a competitor, but I would call coworking an effective tool for filling business centers, which, as we all know, still experience certain difficulties with this. – Now they are opening in large numbers, in Moscow City, for example … – Yes, the average annual rate is about 20-30%.

“ENOUGH QUALITY OF QUALITATIVE OFFICE AREAS, BUT COMPETITION WILL BE ABOVE FOR THEM”

Evgenia Luchitskaya, official representative of A-Store Estates, a Neopolis business district developer, on the situation in the Moscow office market, last year’s results, prospects and expectations. – Eugene, today I would like to talk about the market of high-quality business centers, mainly class A, about vacancy, demand, rental rates … And the first question that worries everyone. The year 2018 has become famous for its low entry. Why, in your opinion, such a failure? – This is really another anti-record for the last 10 years. The reason is simple: we are emerging from a crisis that, of course, has affected the expectations of developers. In 2014-2015, rental rates “grew down”, the market not only became ruble – it collapsed, a huge amount of vacant space was formed. Therefore, the costs that went into the construction of large office buildings did not pay off. The market has changed dramatically. Continue reading
