CBD Grade-A office rents up by 2.1% q-o-q in 1Q2022: Cushman & Wakefield


Rental Fees for CBD Grade-A workplaces have climbed by 2.1% in 1Q2022, greater than the 1.7% development in the previous quarter, according to a record by Cushman & Wakefield on April 6. This comes as vacancy rates for CBD Grade-A workplaces tightened up to 4.6% from 4.9% in the last quarter.

Generally, Cushman & Wakefield stays positive on the Singapore workplace market outlook, in spite of “raising downside dangers”. While it does not prepare for the Ukraine battle to have a direct impact on the Singapore office market, inflationary pressures are anticipated to remain raised due to greater power costs and also supply-chain disruptions worsened by lockdowns in China, which is a key trade partner for Singapore.

Wong Xian Yang, head of research, Singapore, at Cushman & Wakefield, predicts ongoing recovery for the decentralised office market, offered commercial decentralisation tasks, spillover demand from the CBD, as well as minimal new Grade-A decentralised office supply.

Rental fees in decentralised office markets also continued to come along. Office rentals for all grades in the city fringe and rural sectors expanded by 1.1% as well as 0.7% q-o-q, respectively. City-fringe workplace openings have improved to 5.5%, while the country vacancy price equaled 5.7%.

“Rochester Commons, the only new Grade-A decentralised workplace advancement this year, has been primarily pre-committed by Sea Group. The following decentralised Grade-An office advancement, Labrador Tower, will only be finished in 2024,” she explains.

However, the continuous financial uncertainties can possibly slow the increase of rates of interest, states Mark Lampard, head of commercial leasing, Singapore, at Cushman & Wakefield. The reopening of Singapore’s economic climate will certainly likewise increase inhabitants’ confidence to occupy extra office space, he adds.

Lampard expects CBD Grade-A workplace rental growth to trend greater, coming in at around 5% for the whole of 2022.
