2021 | Q3 | Russia | Moscow | Office

According to the results of Q1-Q3 2021, the total volume of Moscow's high-quality office supply reached 19.4 million sq m. Moreover, the volume of office buildings commissioned in Q3 2021 amounted to 51,000 sq m, which together with the commissioning for H1 2021 gives 497,600 sq m for the year so far. The new office supply came from the commissioning of four properties: Bolshevik, Phase II (GLA 17,300 sq m), Galaktion (GLA 17,200 sq m), Smolenskiy passage, Phase II (GLA 15,700 sq m), and the business center at 16 bldg10 Elektrolitny Ln (GLA 1,100 sq m). A slight decrease in vacant space for Q3 2021 (-0.1 p.p.) was caused by the lack of large office units. The current supply on the market is formed by small premises (average size of a vacant unit is 500 sq m), which are less in demand among tenants.

2021 | Q1 | Russia | Moscow | Office

At the end of Q1 2021, the total volume of Moscow office supply amounted to 19.3 million sq m. In Q1 2021, about 310,000 sq m were commissioned, which is 38% more than the indicator for the entire 2020. The vacancy rate in Q1 2021 amounted to 8.5%, which is 0.3 p.p. higher than in Q4 2020. The increase in the total vacancy rate was due to the completion of several new properties, as well as the increase in the vacancy rate of Class A buildings. Rental rates are in a state of stagnation, but their potential growth is stimulated by a significant shortage of high-quality space in premium locations. Currently, the activity of tenants in the office market continues to remain at a good level. Companies are considering various options; both moving to a new office to save or improve the quality of their current office and expanding the current space due to business growth.
