According to CBRE’s semi-annual Global Prime Office Rents survey, Asian office markets have dominated in rent prices. The survey showed that cities with IT and media hubs had the strongest growth in prime rents, largely thanks to co-working spaces. It also stated that while Asian markets were high, other markets had shown more steady growth.

This survey shows us that the value of the Asian market is continuing to increase and will continue to grow in the near future.

We are seeing prime office rental growth outstripping the overall market performance.”
