Cohousing
The neighbourly feel of a traditional village centre

‘Cohousing’ has existed in Denmark since the 1970s, and today about 5% families have been won over by the concept. In Flanders, cohousing first appeared some 20 years ago. Brussels and Wallonia have now also discovered the concept, which combines the privacy of individual homes with shared functions and a social ethos that brings neighbours together.

Workplace occupancy cost: Belgium out of line with European trend
As it does every year, Colliers International has published its ‘Occupier Cost index’ (OCI), which calculates the total annual cost of a workstation per member of staff. This index is calculated on the basis of data from over 3,650 buildings across 29 European countries, and representing some 33 million square metres. The OCI involves over 1.7 million employees and is considered as a barometer of real estate costs for the professional property sector.

A conference given by Colliers International at the recent Mipim show in Cannes was partially, in principal, on the subject of the impact of Brexit on the European real estate market. But the presenters, Walter Boettcher - UK Chief Economist, Director of research and forecast - and Damian Harrington -Head of EMEA Research-, invited those present to see the much wider picture. It is within this same logic that the main Belgian market, Brussels, can be seen both in its own right and as part of the European whole.

2015: Annus horibilis for the letting market
Following the signs of recovery seen in the figures of 2014, in 2015 take-up was at one of its lowest levels since the crisis first broke out back in 2008. With a volume of around 370,000 m² (including lease renewals and purchases for own occupation), take-up was some 20% down on the previous year, and substantially lower (-18%) than the average since the start of the crisis in 2008.
