Overview of commercial real estate market: rent went up by 13% per year

At the end of 2010 the average rental rates for retail section 100-300 m in the successful commercial and shopping centers (shopping center / mall) in Kiev has increased by about 13% to $ 85 per sqm

If we compare with previous periods, the current level of rental rates in this segment is close to the level of 2007. The average vacancy rate in the market of Kiev has decreased from 5 to 3.5%. In the successful shopping center / mall vacant premises are virtually absent.

In 2010, the new offering retail space in Kiev was limited to commissioning the second phase of the regional mall Sky Mall of the total lease area of ​​45 500 square meters. m, which is the lowest rate in four years, said market experts.

In total, as of January 1, 2011 in Kiev, operates about 600 thousand square meters. m of retail space in the shopping center / mall.

Commissioning of the many applications for 2010 TC / SC has been postponed due to delays in construction financing. Thus, the majority of owners continues to build its own expense, resulting in the construction schedule directly depends on the rate at which they are received.

Saturation of retail space in Kiev, according to analysts Colliers International, is very small in comparison with other capitals of Central and Eastern Europe. The indicator of market saturation with high-quality shopping center / mall is even lower. As a consequence, new shopping centers with a professional concept and a good location at the end of 2010 have almost zero vacancy.

For 2011-2012 announced by the commissioning of nine new shopping center / mall with a total rental area of ​​about 330 thousand square meters. m. It should be noted that a significant number of quality projects TC / SC, whose construction could begin in 2011-2013.

Based on past practice, the most likely situation where the commissioning of projects already under construction is carried by more than two years. Given this trend, the future of realistic proposal 2011/2012 period may be less than half of the claimed, stressed professionals.

Due to the expected growth of competition, a number of owners of the shopping center / mall, a concept that is outdated or ineffective, considering various options reconception or reconstruction and / or change the format of its commercial properties.

At the moment, as noted in Colliers International, Commercial segment is the only segment of the commercial real estate, to which large quantities of practical interest exhibit foreign and local players.

Contrary to the negative forecasts of some experts in 2008 and in 2009-2010 left the market just a few tenants. In 2009, most retailers optimize their business processes to changing conditions by cutting and / or reorient the other price segments.

In this case since the beginning of 2010 the market started to get new brands. Due to a shortage of professional retail space in the Ukraine, in 2010, demand for some exceeded the supply. In fact, all that came on the market of Kiev for the past 3 years, new shopping center / mall with a professional concept and a good location to the present day are filled with tenants at 95-100%.

Significant changes in the structure of actively developing the tenants in comparison to the year 2009 has not occurred, told the experts. The main consumers of retail space continues to be:

  • grocery stores (hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, discounters, etc.);
  • shops of home appliances and electronics;
  • specialty stores (baby products, sporting goods, furniture, etc.);
  • clothing, footwear and accessories designed for the mass market (price segment of the “average” and “medium minus “).

It is also worth noting that retailers segment “average plus” fixed small but steady growth in sales in 2011 may increase their development plans.

Based on conservative projections of growth of retail trade and personal income, most likely in 2011, the consumer market in its structure and size will be comparable with rates in 2010, according to Colliers International.

forecasts of experts in 2011:

  • Start of large-scale projects shopping / shopping center in Kyiv and the regions.
  • Ready developers to reconstruction / reconception TC / SC, dubious concept of professionalism and competitiveness.
  • Increased demand for retail space in shopping center successful / TRC, the main shopping streets of Kiev and major regional cities.
  • moderate rental growth with preservation of the existing low level of vacancy in a successful shopping center / mall.
  • Saving rate of most commercial operators to develop stores in Kiev and cities with populations over 500 thousand people.
  • further increase in interest in the commercial segment of the Ukrainian part of international investors, developers and retailers. Some of them may enter the Ukrainian market in 2011.

What are the advantages of a diesel engine?

Rising fuel prices, especially for diesel fuel, has attracted worldwide attention, and around the diesel technology is not subsiding controversy. At the same time, proponents of the “Diesel” result in a number of arguments in its favor.

1. Diesel engines continue to consume less fuel than gasoline

Despite the fact that modern technology – such as gasoline direct injection and the concept of minimizing – to help further improve the gasoline engines, reducing fuel consumption, “Diesel” is still superior to them in this regard.

Modern “diesels,” spend about 30% less fuel than gasoline engines with direct injection of the same generation. Diesel car of the compact class for the previous generation consumed 31% less fuel than a gasoline engine with injection through the intake manifold. The latest generation of diesel engines by 29% more economical than petrol engines with direct injection, turbocharger on exhaust gases and a reduced displacement.

2. Diesel engines are more economical in terms of overall operating costs

In many classes of cars “diesel” is still the leader in terms of total annual operating costs. In addition, long known that the benefit depends on the annual mileage cars: the higher it is, the greater the effect of low fuel consumption.

This is confirmed by several studies, for example, according to the German automobile association ADAC, with an annual mileage of 20 thousand kilometers, “89% of diesel cars are more efficient than their gasoline counterparts.”

3. Distribution of “diesel engine” helps implement a program to reduce the emission of CO2

Thanks to lower fuel consumption diesel engines emit about 25% less CO2, than conventional gasoline engines.

The tendency to buy large cars can have a positive impact on the balance of CO2 – many of them are equipped with diesel engines.

Automakers will be able to reach EU targets on emissions CO2 (120 g / km) only if the diesel models will retain or increase their current share of all new cars in the EU – around 50%.

4. A tax on CO2 – another economic argument in favor of “diesel engine”

A tax on CO2 emissions, diesel cars will make even more advantageous, as they emit about 25% less carbon dioxide than gasoline. Consequently, owners of diesel cars will pay less tax.

5. Diesel engines continue to improve

A number of solutions will soon allow to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of diesel engines: the projected engineers “Bosch” – 10% by 2012.

Today offers a variety of technologies for gasoline and diesel engines. For example, the concept of minimization will reduce the displacement without loss of power, reducing fuel consumption and emissions in the engines of both types. The same results and helps to make technology “start-stop”.

In other words, engineers strive to realize the potential of further reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions – as a diesel and gasoline in cars. Both technologies are developed in parallel to this direction.

6. Diesel cars are gaining ground in world markets

The share of diesels among new cars in Western Europe remains unchanged compared with 2006 and 2007, and in the UK is gradually increasing. The sharp rise in demand for diesel cars has recently seen in France, where in 2008 introduced a system of “bonus-malus,” in which buyers of cars with low CO2 emissions will receive discounts.

From the beginning, the share of diesels among new cars registered in France, has grown by about 6 percentage points – from 74% in 2007 to almost 80%.

The growth in popularity of gasoline direct injection has no effect on the distribution of diesel, but leads to the exclusion of injection through the intake manifold.

Non-European countries are also seeking to reduce vehicle emissions and fuel consumption by introducing appropriate legislative measures. American buyers, for example, are increasingly interested in cost-effective and environmentally friendly engines.

In addition, the U.S. seeks to reduce its dependence on imported crude oil, and diesel engines, with their lower fuel consumption can play a key role in solving this problem. Experts expect that by 2015 diesel engines will be fitted with 15% of all new cars and light trucks in the U.S..

7. New emissions standards will not necessarily lead to higher prices of diesel vehicles

Reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions in compliance with “Euro 5”, which enter into force in Ukraine in 2014, does not require the use of expensive technologies. In many cases – depending on the car – Modern diesel injection technology in combination with the optimization of combustion will fulfill even the norm “Euro 6”, without the high cost of processing the exhaust gases and other additional costs. Now engineers are working on creation of the necessary equipment for this.

The Cabinet plans to increase quotas for grain exports

The Ukrainian government can increase grain export quotas by 1 million tons of wheat and 1.7 million tons – for corn, and after March cancel them, the Minister of Agricultural Development and Food Prisyajnyuk Nicholas.

“We are studying the balance sheet and will likely continue to increase quotas by 1 million tons of wheat and 1.7 million tons of corn. Ministry of Economy is now beginning to shape the draft resolution. It will be in February – before the end of March. We are trying at the end March, after all, to abolish quotas, because it is near the new crop “- the minister said in Kiev on Wednesday.

“The grain embargo” was introduced in Ukraine by 31 March 2011. In the Federation Rosiyskoy it operates from 15 August 2010 to July 1, 2011.

Quotas for grain export, originally introduced by the Government of Ukraine at the beginning of October 2010 up to December 31, 2010, at the end of last year has been extended until March 31, 2011. Moreover, the total size of the quota was increased by 1.5 million tonnes – up 4.2 million tons. The quota for corn exports increased from 2 million tons to 3 million tonnes of wheat – from 0.5 million tons to 1 million tons.

During this time the quotas are distributed only once a way that caused then sharp criticism from market participants: The Cabinet decision of November 10, 2010 limited the period for applications, so many exporters are simply not able to get the findings Minagroproda and submit their bids.

Special commission November 12 last year, 2.182 million tonnes allocated quotas among companies. In particular, LLC “Agricultural enterprise” NIBULON “LLC,” Kernel-Trade “and the enterprise with foreign investment,” Serna “received 52.6% of quotas on grain exports.

Then the Ministry of Economy announced the call for applications from 16 to 30 November on exports of maize in the retained export quota of 518 thousand tons, but it was never distributed.
