LONDON-Rental growth in Europe’s key office markets slowed dramatically through the summer of 2001, according to FPD Savills. And the blow to business confidence post 11 September has hit take-up, meaning that rents in some locations could fall.

The average rate of rental growth fell from 13% per annum at the end of March 2001 to 9% by the end of September. But some locations have bucked the trend. Frankfurt saw rents climb 33% to DM 1,4440 per sq m ($62 per sf) per annum in the year to September 2001. Athens saw 25.9% growth over the period and the City of London 25%.
