Q3 2017 | Bangkok Office Report

Demand continued to show improvement from 1H 2017, due to limited available office space; the government is also trying to attract more foreign investments. Supply remains limited due to the lack of new supply entering the market, especially Grade A in prime locations.

Occupancy rates in main locations are higher than 90%; most Grade A buildings in close proximity to mass transit systems are showing high occupancy rates. Rental rates have been driven upwards over the past two to three years, and this trend is expected to continue in 2017, but may be lower than in the past.
