Data which are carefully kept by INDUSTRIAL real estate partners reveal that last year 1.18 million sq m were let and sold, almost 8% down compared to 2013. This drop particularly involved second-hand industrial buildings; in the new development category take-up levels were rather steady. But even though last year’s total take-up levels did go down, the general mood has been positive nevertheless as the number of lease and sale transactions remained almost the same compared to 2013. One significant detail is that in calculating these levels, companies that meet their own accommodation requirements – the ‘owner-occupied buildings’ – as well as companies extending their leases, have not been taken into consideration. 1,500,000 new developments Take-up of industrial space by branch 2014 4% 3% 17% commodities light industrial logistics production 76% 2,000,000 1,750,000 1,500,000 1,250,000 1,000,000 750,000 500,000 250,000 purchase lease Take-up of industrial space by size category 2014 5,000-10,000 10,000-15,000 35% 37% 15,000-20,000 20,000 and more 10% industrial.nl 18% 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 0 2007 Even though last year’s market made a positive impression in general, geographically speaking some unmistakable differences in market dynamics presented themselves. For instance, transaction volumes were disappointing in Almere and also in the region above the North Sea Canal, however take-up of industrial space in the Amsterdam-Schiphol region made quite a strong recovery, also following the rental of several distribution centres. In North Brabant the disposal of large-scale industrial spaces remains at good levels, yet take-up of industrial and logistics real estate has dropped in Limburg. Take-up of industrial space by type of ownership in sq m 2006 In 2014 the demand for large-scale industrial space was primary focussed on the logistics real estate market. In this segment most companies preferred renting rather than buying their accommodation. Judging by the amount of transactions finalised, companies were particularly interested in buildings with between 5,000 and 10,000 sq m of lettable space and also in larger buildings with more than 20,000 sq m of space.

In the so-called open market, the amount of buildings rented or sold remained the same compared to last year. Approximately 900,000 sq m in total have welcomed new users. Many newly constructed distribution centres were taken up, however existing buildings were also given serious attention. As in previous years, in 2014 the amount of transactions realised was highest in the southern Netherlands as the west and centre of the province of North Brabant claimed much of this demand.

Rising availability followed almost entirely due to speculative construction of distribution centres in places like Venlo, Utrecht and Schiphol. Interestingly, in addition to the immediately available supply, the number of plans to build sustainable distribution centres has grown as well. Even though more newly developed buildings were available for lease last year, the majority of the spaces on offer were old and quite often less marketable. In addition to municipalities with many vacant distribution centres for rent, vacancy was hardly an issue in places like Bergen op Zoom, Eindhoven, Moerdijk, Venlo and Waalwijk. 250,000 2006 Last year Limburg witnessed a modest decrease in logistics real estate take-up, however INDUSTRIAL real estate partners is expecting this region to attract quite a deal of attention this year, a development that will serve Venlo in particular. This region is an interesting business location for international companies who sell their products online and who want their distribution centres to be in the proximity of the Cologne Bonn Airport.

Investors were not only interested in build-to-suit projects, they also paid serious attention to buildings that existed already. The majority of the acquisitions realised last year involved buildings with relatively substantial investment volumes. Distribution centres worth less than € 5 million were hardly disposed of. One of the consequences of investors’ major demand for logistics real estate was that the gross initial yield of first-class distribution centres went down to less than 7 percent in some cases. 800 2006 Real estate in the Netherlands continued to attract investors in 2014 as low return on government loans and the large availability of funds made many investors embrace it. The logistics real estate market benefited from this development. Trusting that the available data on acquisitions and sales are correct, last year there was approximately € 835 million invested in distribution centres. As a result, investment volumes were very close to those of 2007, a record year in terms of logistics real estate investments. Last year investors clearly preferred distribution centres in North Brabant and Limburg, as well as Utrecht and Amsterdam Schiphol. values x million € Investments in logistics space by region 350 300 250 200 150 100 50 O re the gi r on s O Br o ab s t Lim ant bu / rg Ut re ch t Sc A hi m ph s t ol er , A da lm m, er M e id W de e n st Br e ab n an t A N r nh ijm e eg m en 0 R H ott aa er gl da an m de n In 2014 investors also seriously considered light industrial buildings, as different large-scale complexes exchanged owners causing the gross initial yield to range from 9% to 13%.
