The greater Lausanne office market benefited from the economic momentum in the Lake Geneva region in 2020. The supply throughout the entire greater Lausanne area fell modestly by 5%. In contrast, the supply in the city of Lausanne rose by 13% in 2020 compared with the previous year – however, there is no discernible recovery yet. The available space is largely in older properties, while new office space in the city is still hard to find. Rents fell slightly in the Greater Lausanne area and in the city – with solid demand in the market area. In the medium term, there will be above-average high demand on the Lausanne office market for modern office space from companies in the technology sector. Thanks to brisk construction activity, such companies will find potential locations, particularly in the outer districts.
