With a take-up of 396,900 sqm, H1 2019 transaction volume  decreased by -18% y-o-y, falling -9% below the ten-year average. This decline is primarily the result of a slow start to Q1 2019, a stark contrast to Q1 2018 which recorded a major transaction in the South. On the other hand, Q2 2019 was burgeoning with transactions. Take-up volume was +22% higher y-o-y and +30% higher than Q1 2019.
