Figures indicate that 2019 was a good year nationally, with a resilient leasing market despite recording a 14% decrease compared with 2018. After 3 record years, 2019 results remain well above the 10-year average as demand remains high, largely sustained by e-commerce growth.

The market therefore remains strong with a total take-up of 3,783,900 sqm. Major regional transactions enabled markets outside the central axis to perform well, thanks to mass distribution and specialised retail transactions.
