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.

Focus on the 2016 BREEAM certification for new constructions
On March 28th, the new BREEAM environmental certification scheme for new constructions – BREEAM INTERNATIONAL NEW CONSTRUCTION 2016 (NC 2016) – replaced the previous scheme which had been used by the market for three years. As a continuation of BREEAM International NC 2013, it now completes the range of certifications with BREEAM INTERNATIONAL REFURBISHMENT AND FIT-OUT (RFO 2015) for the renovation and fit-out of buildings, launched last year. Our team of assessors has taken a close look at this reference, in order to provide an overview of what has changed, compared to previous versions.

Good governance in the public sector extends to the private domain
It is now around ten years ago that Anixton, through its founder and Managing Director Vincent Gérin, started providing the service known as ‘Tenant Representation’ (Rep for short). In this article, Vincent Gérin talks of the philosophy behind the move, and cites a number of concrete cases. He also talks of the trends in the real estate sector, in terms of selecting a new building, which he describes as ‘being part of the company’s marketing’. Allied to all this is the issue of sustainability, passive buildings, and of all the different criteria which play a part in the final choice.

Office conversion continues unabated
The trend of office space conversion to alternative uses is still strong, with another 92,000 m² of office space being reconverted in 2015. Particularly in Brussels, which has the most substantial office stock in the country at 12.7 million m². Typically, older, out-dated office properties abutting residential districts have been redeveloped over the last decade, though office space in traditional business districts has also garnered interest. According to Michael Niego, Director Capital Markets at CBRE, the motivation for the conversion of office space has been a colliding trend of economic factors.

European district and PUL on the move
There are changes in the way the Brussels Capital Region is going to manage the European District. A new position of Commissioner has been created, and in January, Alain Hutchinson began work in the role. One of the best known personalities on the Brussels real estate landscape – Marie-Laure Roggemans or ‘Madame Europe’ – is to leave her post in July (although she will remain as President of the Historical Sites and Monuments Commission). We asked both of them to explain the change, and to give the latest evolutions on the ‘Projet Urbain Loi’ (PUL) and the European District in general.
