Since 2012, TERREÏS deliberately concentrates its asset portfolio on prime assets in Paris. This strategy, focusing on assets valuation, eases rental and leads to a higher occupancy rate. At the same time, expected yields are lower.
Total rental income for the first nine months of 2017 were €48.2 million, to be compared to €49.9 million over the same period of 2016. On a like-for-like basis, they are up by 0.5%.
- Solid ongoing performance of strategic assets in Paris
Rental income from office assets in Paris were up 6.6% over the first nine months of 2017, and up 2.1% over Q3. They represent 94% of total rental income over Q3 (88% over Q3 2016).
On a like-for-like basis, rental income from Parisian Tertiary assets were up 2.7% over the first nine months of 2017, mainly due to the decrease in EPRA vacancy rate (excluding buildings under restructuring) which stood at 2.1% over Q3 2017, an improvement of 0.7 point on Q2. They also took advantage of a positive indexation for €0.2 million (+0.4%).
Acquisitions MADE in 2016 and in 2017 (three office buildings located at 11 and 32/34 rue Galilée and 10/12 rue de Lübeck and a building 73 rue Ste Anne) had a positive impact of €1.7 million on 9 months rental income.
As at September 30, 2017, TERREÏS acquired for €46 million (excluding duties) of buildings in Paris, of which €28 million over Q3:
- a 2,500 sq. m. Haussmannian asset at 11 rue de Milan (9e). Out of 1,300 sq.m. of office space, 1,000 sq.m. (« Second Empire » style mansion house) will be renovated before relocation. The remaining 300 sq. m. are entirely rented.

- Ongoing disposals of office buildings out of Paris and of Residential assets
The decrease by €3.7 million of rental revenues from non-strategic assets (offices out of Paris and Residential) reflected the active selling off policy of these assets.

- Outlook: ongoing refocus on high-quality Paris office real estate
TERREÏS' goal is to increase its Paris commercial property portfolio, and to focus on Paris CBD. Over the 4th quarter of 2017, TERREÏS will keep concentrating on the disposal of its non-strategic assets.
