The first half of this year ended under sign of retail real estates - they accounted for as much as 59% of investment transactions in Poland. They exceeded the value of EUR 1.5 billion, which means a slightly lower result compared to the same period last year.

The result above is contributed by EPP acquisition of properties from Blackstone's portfolio and Fashion House outlet centres purchase in Piaseczno, Gdansk and Sosnowiec by RREEF Spezial Investment.

Looking ahead to the investors' plans in the second half of the year, the volume of acquisitions may surprise the real estate market. In terms of the volume of facilities takeovers, the hotel market is also performing quite well - the market has record-breaking values on the capital market: EUR 342 million which gives 23% of all transactions. The office segment also reported EUR 274 million (18%) of transactions in the office segment.
