Office Market Resiliency Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic


The Philippine office market showed its resiliency as Colliers recorded the highest level of transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The vacancies in the various office submarkets, however, are still expected to increase as the level of vacated spaces still outstripped demand. Rents are expected to continue tracking a downward trajectory. In the meantime, opportunities abound for so long as the ‘jobs-to-be-done’ will be worked on by the commercial real estate stakeholders.
