PANEL DISCUSSION: Outlook for the commercial property market

The total spend in the first half of 2018 for commercial property was €1.86 billion with 8 transactions of more than €100 million completed in the six month period boosting overall spend. Given these figures and the monumental bounce back of the market since the crash, prospects for the CPM appear in great shape. Why then are some commentators as well as the ECB wary of market inflation and another potential bust? Is the viability of the market relying on a ‘granite’ Brexit? Where are the planning bottlenecks for future development?
