Here’s more from Knight Frank:
Due to the tight supply of new office inventory coupled with steady demand for traditional as well as co-working space, the office sector has become a landlord’s market.
Occupancy levels in the Raffles Place / Marina Bay precinct remained healthy at 95.5% with the overall CBD occupancy improving to 94.2% from the 93.6% in the last quarter. Many businesses actively sought quality office space that can support the full resumption of functions to pre-pandemic levels, and meet the operational needs of a normalising economy.
