Total take-up of office space in the Netherlands 2010-2018

This statistic shows the total take-up of office space in the Netherlands from 2010 to 2018 (in thousand square meters of lettable floor area). In 2018, approximately 1.6 million square meters of office real estate was taken up in the Netherlands. The performance of the European office real estate market is strongly connected to the development of its domestic economies. As the economy of the European Union has shown signs of recovery, more and more companies showed their readiness to pay the right price for a new office building. Indeed, in the first quarter of 2016 approximately 43 percent of the European real estate transaction volume consisted of transactions in office properties, reaching a total transaction volume of approximately 20.6 billion euros.

The figures have been taken from several publications.

The source defines 'lettable floor area' as a measurement of the total occupiable floor space taken from the inside surfaces of the exterior walls and/or the mid-line of any shared walls and excludes areas such as common stair wells, toilets, lift lobbies and vertical service ducts.

The numbers provided are as of January 1st of each year and include transactions of offices spaces with a minimum lettable floor area of 250 square meters in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht and all transactions in other municipalities. Investment transactions or offices which are to be 'transformed' in residential real estate are excluded from these figures. Transactions are registered in the year both parties reach an agreement.
