West Australian Suburban Office Report
After 18 months of recording negative net absorption, Perth’s suburban markets recorded positive demand over the past 8 months despite a majority of the 49 suburban office markets covered recording lower demand – including major markets Northbridge, Subiaco and Herdsman. Positive demand was driven by non-core markets such as Mirrabooka and Myaree as well as the expansion of local tenants such as the State Government, Summit Homes, RAAFA, Mineral Resources, Access Housing and Silverchain.
The key question remains: have suburban office markets passed the bottom of the market? Are they on the road to recovery due to State Government decentralisation, improved economic diversity and retention of major suburban occupiers, or is worse still to come due to over 10,000 sq m of speculative development forecast to be completed in the next 6 months, the potential for further relocations to the CBD and uncertain short term economic conditions?
