The volume of investment in commercial real estate in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in 2022 was approximately 10.7 billion euros. Although this is a year-on-year decrease of only 3.3%, compared to the situation before the pandemic, it is a reduction of more than 20%. At the same time, domestic capital was the most active with a 38% share of total transaction volumes. In the first half of 2023, commercial real estate markets will remain subdued due to significantly higher financing costs and the subsequent price correction currently taking place in both CEE and many other regions. Colliers experts estimate that in 2023 investment volumes in CEE could reach between 7.0 and 10.0 billion euros. This follows from a study by Colliers, a leader in the provision of diversified professional services in the field of commercial real estate and investment management.
An office building today is not just a reinforced concrete skeleton filled with glass panels.

- After fifteen years, the Crestyl Group has completed its extensive DOCK district, which grew up around two blind branches of the Vltava in Liben, Prague. The capital thus gained a new revitalized location, which completed the face of the metropolis. In May, the very last building was approved - the DOCK IN FIVE offices. A year ago, a one-hectare park opened right on the premises, residential buildings were completed and apartments were sold out a year earlier. In the just completed last office building, 70% of the space is currently leased, all other office buildings are fully occupied by tenants. The entire DOCK project includes a total of 120,000 m2 of commercial and residential space. In addition to apartments, offices and the park, the campus also includes restaurants, cafes, shops and services or a yacht club with a marina.
The construction, operation, financing, development and acquisition of commercial real estate in 2022 and beyond will continue to be affected by the prices of fuels, energy and building materials. Added to this are problems in supply chains, nearshoring operations and rapidly rising inflation. The Colliers CEE Investment Scene 2021/2022 study predicts that these factors will have a direct impact on sales prices and rents.
State-of-the-art technologies including intelligent building control, high-quality archi-tecture, BREEAM Excellent certification and a prestigious address in the newly es-tablished centre of the city.

Once completed in 2023, a major part of the building will be rented by TietoEVRY, an international provider of IT services and one of the biggest employers in the Moravian-Silesian region.

More than 40% of all office real estate on the domestic market is certified by one of the internationally recognized systems that confirm its sustainability: the British BREEAM or the American LEED. In this respect, the Czech Republic, together with other countries in the CEE region, ranks among the champions of the whole of Europe - the average is around 20%. Much has been written about the positive impact of certified buildings on the health and well-being of employees, minimizing environmental impacts and saving operating costs. However, one question remained unanswered: how is the certification of office buildings really reflected in their performance, ie prices per square meter of rented space and occupancy? CBRE, the world leader in commercial real estate services, is now providing the key answer. It is based on an analysis of almost 22,000 leases concluded in the last five years in 12 European countries, including the Czech Republic.
