New office lettings above 5,000 sqm keep experiencing stronger incentives than others with a difference yet scaled down to +2.3 points after Q4 2016.

In the same time, the secured length of lettings above 5,000 sqm remains at 9.3 years in average at the end of Q4 2016 and 5.9 for other lettings, which is still up by 6% over a year for the first type and stable for the second.

The average level of rent incentives ranges across market sectors from 15.2% in North Eastern Paris to 25.5% in La Défense. The most significant change is a renewed decrease of rent incentives in La Défense by -1.7 point over the quarter.

All calculations are based on lettings that have been assisted by ImmoStat members. This allows an unparalleled coverage of 67% of the take-up that was observed for lettings greater than 1,000 sqm over the last 12 months (72% for lettings greater than 5,000 sqm).
