Ha ha ha! Don't be too sure of that! After the reunification there was built a shitload of office space - but unortunately a lot of it is empty space. I think there is a lot of space for ghosts to live in Berlin offices!!!

You say that caz european lame ass cities don't have supertalls so you want to change a bit to fit your low life,lol! Come on! if you want to count on the horizontal occupancy by the office space and warehouses/factory by area of city. I gurantee you that NYC and Chicago is on the world's top 3! Of course again, London and Paris certain has more office space volume then those german cities due to the densities of two! but don't get me wrong, you actually think that european densities in small block size area can compare to chicago loop? I still don't see da facts proving the biased list from the thread starter!
What will they say up there in Sears Tower when they see you using the computers to write rubbish instead of cleanig the floors and the restrooms?!

This article seems to have screwed up for India I think.

Check the following article and the one after that.

This claims, 5 million sq feet will be made available in Mumbai by the end of 2005.

BPO rush driving demand for 'built-to-suits' real estate

Quote:
The forecast is that by the end of 2005, an additional five million square feet of space will be made available for these sectors in Mumbai alone. A new trend emerging is the an increase in lease rentals at Nariman Point in South Mumbai.
Quote:
n Delhi over 5.5 million sq ft of office space is expected to be added in 12 months, with Gurgaon alone is responsible for 69 per cent of the estimated supply.
These two are from pretty reputable sites.They make me doubt the original list.

Can somebody convert the figure to sq m?

Well if you're correct then the thread should be called (World's Largest Cities-by Class A office space volume).

I highly doubt Berlin is #3. How could it be ahead of Hong Kong?

Beijing is building more office space than exists in Hong Kong? NO WAY!

You've got to divide it by ten approximatively to get your result in sqm = 500.000m2

Workspaces in the US and UK tend to be smaller than those in continental Europe, mostly because of regulations. Iíve never seen offices like the one in this pic below in Europe:




Average office space per worker in Chicago is 185 sq ft, US average maybe 200 sq ft, while in Germany itís about 300 sq ft per worker. Therefore European companies simply need more office space to house the same number of employees. This might explain why European cities are ranked so high.


Unfortunately it doesnít explain why Hong Kong en Seoul are ranked so low though. The figures for these cities just canít be right.

Seoul has lot of office space but not much in class A

Due to lack of Class A grade office space, Seoul rents for Class A office space among the highest in the world. What is impressive is that Tokyo has so much high grade office space.

I don't know if the figures are correct for all cities. I do know that they don't include an additional 18 million sqft (~2 million sq meters) of office space in the 6 sq. mile city of Cambridge, MA directly across a small river from the CBD of Boston.

The original list just doesn't seem right to me. Although Calgary has a lot of office space (currently nearly 3.3 million square metres, with anther nearly 100,000 sq. m under construction and a large 200,000 square metre development likely to be under construction within a year or so), I just don't see my city having anywhere near as much space as Shanghai. I've been to Shanghai, and I can tell you that it simply dwarfs Calgary in terms of highrise development. Even if most of the skyscrapers in Shanghai are residential, there still must be significantly more office space in Shanghai than this list shows.

Except for the fact that many Asian cities are undercounted.

As others have said... how likely is it that Shanghai has only 150,000m^2 more office space than Calgary? Impossible.
