Tenant demand for quality office space in North Ryde continues to gain strength and has produced the lowest vacancy rate in more than four years, according to the Property Council of Australia’s latest Office Market Report.
“The vacancy rate in North Ryde continues to shrink as tenants stake a claim for quality office space,” says Property Council NSW Executive Director Glenn Byres.
“The overall vacancy rate in North Ryde fell from 8.2 percent to 6.7 percent in the six months to July 2012, its lowest level since January 2008.
“It is being fuelled by strong net absorption in the A Grade market, with 17,721 sqm in additional demand over the past six months.
“The A Grade vacancy rate has been cut to 4 percent.
“B Grade demand rose by 1282sqm and led to a dip in the vacancy rate from 12.1 percent to 11.6 percent over the past six months.
“C Grade demand also followed the trend, with 2290 sqm of net absorption dropping the vacancy rate from 38.8 percent to 27.6 percent.”
Mr Byres says 29,324 sqm of space is planned for 2013 but no projects are planned for 2012 or 2014.
