London office and retail property are set to produce only middling performance in the next few years, when compared to Western Europe’s other major markets. We think London’s large development pipeline will constrain rental value growth in the office sector, while expensive rents and business rates will limit the upside for prime retail rents. Elsewhere, Paris and Stockholm will be amongst the best performers in both sectors.
