Business Review is proud to continue its tradition of organizing the Realty event. Realty 2015 will provide networking and learning support for industry professionals keen to spot opportunities and trends, find potential partners, meet decision makers and build a profitable business on the Romanian real estate market.
The Romanian real estate market was at its strongest point in its recovery in 2014 and this year it is expected to maintain its growth momentum. On the office segment leasing activity should maintain at least last years’ average while the new class A stock is projected to enter a growth phase. Two major shopping malls are scheduled to be delivered this year in Romania after last year the new stock marked the lowest annual level since 2006. The local market for industrial and logistics space and also the residential segment are experiencing something of an effervescence with leasing activity going up and new housing projects being started. So, will 2015 be the best post-crisis year for the local real estate market so far?
