More Than €800 Million Transacted In The Irish Development Land Market During The First 9 Months Of 2019

October 9th, 2019 - Property consultants CBRE Ireland have today released figures for the volume and value of development land traded (both on and off-market) in the Irish market in the first nine months of 2019, which shows that 47 land sales were completed in Ireland in the year to the end of September, totalling more than €800 million between them.

Peter Garrigan, Director, Development Land & Consultancy
Activity in the development land market in the first nine months of 2019 has been steady with a number of large sales having completed in the last quarter bringing total spend in the year-to-date to more than €800 million. There are a number of sales in legals which will boost this spend in Q4. We continue to witness strong demand for well-located sites although there are clear signs of stabilisation emerging in terms of land prices in recent months.
Peter Garrigan, Director, Development Land & Consultancy

In addition to developing out existing schemes, CBRE say that much of the focus in the development land sector at present is on design, consultancy and planning as developers prepare to lodge the next wave of planning applications and focus on potential rezoning opportunities in forthcoming development plans. As in other sectors of the commercial property market, much of the activity in the development land sector at present is occurring off-market.
