Our South East Offices Q3 2021 Snapshot report suggests that the South East office market has experienced the most comprehensive improvement in demand since the pandemic began.


Some key highlights from the report include:

  • The number of transactions over 50,000 sq ft in 2021 to date has reached nine, totalling in excess of 1 million sq ft.

  • Headline rental uplift is spreading across a wider number of centres, an inevitable consequence of improving demand across all size bands.

  • Investment demand is weighted to two ends of the investor spectrum with strong levels of demand for secure income assets and core value add opportunities.

  • Q4 investment volumes should be boosted by strong end-of-year activity, with over £1 billion currently under offer.
