London office availability hits five-year low
Building
12 January 2015
Quote:
Deloitte Real Estate figures show lack of office availability in central London

The amount of office space available to rent in Central London has fallen by 14% over the last 12 months and 48% since the peak in 2009, according to the latest figures released by Deloitte Real Estate.

Deloitte’s end of year research figures show central London now has the lowest level of office availability since 2009.

does this mean that more towers are on the way to fill the space shortage? or it's something rather alarming?

It has two sides of the story as always in life. Pros: it's good for construction industry as, you are rightly mentioned, more towers would appear and some developers might even decide to start a project without major pre-let.

Cons: Shortage always means the rent prices are going up which is not good for business and some companies might delay expansion to London or thinking of moving elsewhere. It market economy it's usually self regulated anyway.

Well we all hope that news like this would fuel the investment needed to kickstart many Skyscraper projects such as The Pinnacle. There are always pro's and con's to news like this.... but for Skyscraper fans there are probably more pro's.

Really, really like this one! Nice classical but still modern architecture. Wouldn't it be cool to have a tower with this design but at least 200-300m high? That would have looked awesome!

I dont get it, London is absolutely booming with new towers u/c. Anyone got a link or recap as to what's going up?

The lulls in the market are when developers stay off building new ones as demand rises in order to levy higher prices.

I think he means, how can there be a shortage of space with such an u/c boom.

To which my educated guess response would be:

To start with the simplest -- u/c buildings don't provide office space, residential buildings don't provide office space. So the vast majority of the stuff we're discussing in the london forums currently is irrelevant.

Thinking of specifically office towers that have completed in the last couple of years -- it seems like less of a boom. Obviously 20FS, Leadenhall, Shard, Churchill Place stand out as a few examples, and no doubt there are too many small schemes to list, but still - keywords "a few" / "small" - not so much of a boom.

And the big headline making buildings like 20FS probably don't count for much at all compared to the the total london market, by square foot.

My further and more subtle guess - without going to the trouble of reading the building link, let alone the deloitte research - would be that a huge proportion of office lets are to companies who could never afford glamour 20FS/shard type rents in a zillion years. If there is a vast oversupply of such "premium" office space, but no cheap and cheerful or midrange office space, should we report there is plenty of office space available? I'm guessing to avoid this type of pitfall (obviously a simplified example there) Deloitte broke the market into sectors, either by type of company, rent bracket, geography (West End vs City vs CW etc), or quite likely all three. And "merged" the availability for their headline figures.

Again, just guessing though

That's a pretty good guess really.

My only input would be that we aren't sure on where the information is aimed at; i.e. large co-operations/organisations that occupy towers like 20FS, Leadenhall, Churchill Place - in which case building of new skyscrapers and towers is fantastic; and the quick snatching up of floor space on these new builds proves that. OR if the article is aimed at smaller firms such as IT Start Up companies etc.

Either way... building more towers for companies can't be a BAD thing surely. London needs more office space and this space is physically being built - the question is who could afford this space.

Again, I'm not expert on the matter... so we'll see what happens. I just want that site at The Pinnacle to have activity on it!
