Lige's market returns to normal
Following a relatively good 2012, the Liege market was once again been characterised last year by weak take-up.

An excellent vintage for investments in retail property
The healthy balance in the Belgian retail market between the three main segments (high street stores, shopping centres and out of town stores/retail parks) continues to attract an unprecedented number of investors.

Antwerp, waiting for new projects
The Antwerp office market is the second largest office market in Belgium after Brussels. Total stock is estimated at around 1,900,000 m (excluding Mechelen) representing around 10% of total Belgian office stock. The Antwerp port activities and its role of as an international trading hub for diamonds are both important economic drivers.
