Chiado is leading the growth of the street trading rents in Europe

Placing at 115€/m² per month, the prime rent in the reference area of the street trading, in the Portuguese capital, recorded an increase of 9.5% in comparison with March 2017, and 15% in the same period last year. An evolution compared to the average growth of just 0.2% in Europe, with Lisbon at the top of the growth ranking, followed by Budapest (Vaci utca), Roma (via Condotti) and Milan (via Napoleone).

To reinforce this continuous valorization of the street trading in Lisbon, the reference yield demanded by the investors to the best assets is, currently, at 4.75%. According to Cushman & Wakefield, this correspond to the lowest value at all time regarding real estate assets in our country, and matched only by the offices at Avenida da Liberdade, also in Lisbon.

Nonetheless, the study “DNA of Real Estate”, by Cushman & Wakefield, indicates that street trading rents in Lisbon show the 4º lower value from the 22 European capitals, and the 9º lower value from the 45 cities covered by the survey.

Therefore, among the capitals of the old continent, only Sofia, Bucharest and Warsaw show street trading rent’ values bellow the ones seen in Lisbon, «a situation that, combined with the increasing flow of tourism and the high interest that our market gets from international retailers, supports the rent growth that has been observed».

According the consultant accounts, in the first half of 2017 were performed more than 100 new rental transactions in the Lisbon street trading, more than 20% of which at the Chiado area.
