A multitude of changes that makes it difficult to assess the scale of riskMORE SPEAKERS
The housing industry is concerned about amendments to the Act on Developers, while commercial properties are looking forward to the abolition of the right of perpetual usufruct… This year alone, about 200 fundamental regulations affecting the commercial property sector have been amended. Investors have one more concern in common – legal and tax changes have been implemented too fast in Poland, without social consultation; they are not precise enough and the rules are being changed during the game. What direction should legal and tax changes in Poland take? What works well and what works poorly?
When will the circular economy really enter the construction and property sector?
Who will be the first to implement the developing economic trend – companies supplying the materials,
or developers themselves? What benefits does the circular economy offer?
Challenges as well as legal and organisational barriers to fast implementation of principles of the circular economy in Poland
Co-working has been growing strong. In five to seven years, flexible office space will account for about 25–30 per cent of the entire modern office space offered in Poland. Co-working versus the traditional office market: Will long-term leases survive? REPORT. All about co-working in Poland
Projects consisting of four walls and a floor – this is the end to the developer business in such a form. Today,
developers create new neighbourhoods and are involved in the revitalisation of buildings and entire quarters; their projects provide for nurseries and nursery schools or cultural functions. They no longer just erect buildings – they create locations. A new role means new challenges. Who are the developers of today? How is the role of an urban developer changing?
Every day, 21 online shops are opened in Poland, and every year, the e-commerce sector keeps growing by over 18 per cent and is now worth over PLN 50 billion. The warehouse and logistics market clearly benefits from that. Poland is an international logistics hub, handling orders for the largest online shops. What will be the growth in demand for warehouses intended for handling e-commerce? What does the future hold for co-operation between retail and logistics? What do e-sales companies expect of developers? What will be the changes to their requirements versus technical, equipment or facility automation specifications? Large warehouses, small business units, and small warehouses for light manufacturing: What will the facilities and future locations of warehouses for the e-commerce sector be like?
In Poland, hotel chains account for about 20 per cent of all hotels. Domestic and foreign operators see an opportunity to expand their presence there. An economic gap, new directions, concepts going beyond the existing standards in the sphere of design or spatial arrangement, and also a combination of functions – for instance, with co-working: What kinds of projects stand the best chance of success? Which locations are attractive? Who is afraid, or how the growth in supply of new facilities will affect the performance of existing hotels.
The world has zeroed in on Polish halls of residence. What are the factors driving the dynamics of development of the private hall of residence sector in Poland? What does the market look like? What is being built and what are developers planning to do?
Presentations of the most recent office space concepts
The low interest rate environment and the fact that Poland has been qualified for the group of developed markets has drawn the attention of large international players to Poland’s sector of investment apartments and condo-hotels. The latter have conquered seaside resorts and have recently become a favourite form of investing capital in large cities. How fast has the market been growing? The largest completed and planned investment projects. What investment projects are sought after by investors, both private and institutional? The major prospects and challenges that the sector is facing.
