London Office Supply Overview

London office supply is the talk of town at present. Regardless of the wider political climate, occupiers have continued to absorb space at a considerable rate. A cocktail of rising construction costs, complexities in the planning regime, demand from flexible providers and the pre-letting dynamic at work within the London market, is impacting the supply pipeline.

While everyone acknowledges the trend, the statistics are becoming quite stark. Larger-scale (100,000 sq ft plus) occupiers are starting searches earlier and earlier in order to secure top quality product in a location that will be amenable to their most important resource of all, their staff.

Colliers International will continue to closely analyse supply conditions and would be delighted to discuss the findings in more detail.

Director & Co-Head

London City Fringe

I started in commercial agency when I was 16, beginning in the West End, and moving over to the City Fringe in 2005.
 
I believe in providing a fresh and innovative service for our clients. I live and breathe what we do and I’m very passionate about it, whether helping clients create and develop new office space, or finding a major new tenant that completely changes the face of a street and adds new life to it.

Together with Colliers’ ‘best -in-class’ London Offices team I believe that we have one of the most powerful agency forces in Central London.
