On the occasion of Realty 2023, on September 19h et 20th, Perspective is discussing office conversions.
Several conversion operations have been highlighted in recent months, and major projects are underway to ensure new housing is being created.
But how are conversion opportunities evolving?
Two years after the health crisis, are office vacancy levels on the rise?
Are the conversions of large office complexes representative of an overall dynamic?
Can the need for housing be met through conversions?
Is it possible to create affordable housing by converting office space?
Just as Perspective is working on updating its report on office conversion, these issues will be addressed at the round table on 20 September at Realty with Muriel Vander Ghinst (Coordinator of the Brussels Capital Region Steering Committee "Emergency Housing Plan"), Jean-Baptiste Van Ex (CEO Vicinity), Cédric Van Meerbeeck (Partner – Head of Research & Marketing Belgium & Luxembourg at Cushman & Wakefield), Benjamin Wayens (research logistician and lecturer at the Université libre de Bruxelles) et Antoine de Borman (Managing Director Perspective).
Realty - Belgium's Real Estate Summit - is the largest gathering of real estate professionals in Belgium.
