BERLIN/VIENNA, 10. September 2020 According to a study, Europe’s top metropolises will be lacking around 1.2 million flats by 2030. In absolute terms, the largest gap is in London, with around 355,000 flats – the city will need another eleven per cent more flats by 2030. On average, this means around 35,000 new homes per year. Warsaw (around 142,000 flats) and Paris (around 129,000 flats) follow in second and third place.
