Direct investment into South Africa’s commercial real estate sector declined year-on-year on account of macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges faced globally and locally. Sectoral performance varied, including robust performance within the Industrial sector, a slower than expected recovery for Retail, and lagging recovery among Offices.
