Average Cost for Leasing Prime Office Space on the Rise, CBRE Report

A new report by CBRE found that prime office space costs have increased across the globe. Of the 122 markets analyzed, 85 experienced a rise in costs by an average of 3.6% over the past twelve months.

Julie Whelan, CBRE Americas Head of Occupier Research, attributes this rise to the fact that in many coveted markets supply remain constrained even as demand grew. According to the report, demand for prime office space is particularly strong from the banking, finance, technology and coworking industries.
