Colliers Essentials Christchurch Office Report  Second Half 2018

Christchurch Office Report | Second Half 2019

There has been a sharp decline in CBD office development over the past year. The peak of development activity in 2015 of approximately 142,500 sqm is just 9,500 sqm in 2018.
 
Suburban relocations, internal CBD churn and smaller tenants leasing activity will erode tenant options despite an aggregate 20% vacancy rate.
 
Assisting tenant growth is the more accommodative net face rents available that typically range between $350 and $370 per sq m, or net effective rents of $280 and $320 after including incentives.
 
Investment demand will remain solid from locals, North Island and overseas purchasers, keeping yields firmly at current levels for the next 12 months.
