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 | Q3 | Russia | Moscow | Retail market

The opening dates of four shopping centres planned in Q3 2021 were postponed to the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022: SEC Paveletskaya Plaza, MUC The Sun of Moscow, SC My Mall and Estate Mall. SEC Paveletskaya Plaza was put into operation in September, but its official opening is expected in Q4 2021. Therefore, not a single high-quality shopping centre was opened in the Moscow region in July-September, a situation that was only repeated in Q2 2019 and in Q1 2016 in the last 10 years. At the same time, the total area of projects announced for opening in H2 2021 is significantly higher than the number of openings of new shopping centres in the pre-pandemic years (2017-2019) and amounts to 217,000 sq. m. Shopping centres provision in the Moscow region for Q3 2021 remained at the level of the previous quarter and amounted to 669 sq m per 1,000 residents. However, after the commissioning of new shopping centres, the annual growth rate is expected to reach 686 sq. m in Q4 2021, depending on the timing of the actual opening of planned projects. The average vacancy rate in shopping centres in the Moscow region is 9.7%, and in projects opened in 2019 2021 amounted to 17.9%.
