The Big Nine - Quarterly Review of The Regional Office Occupier Markets, Q2 2012
Report Authors: GVA
Business confidence has continued to affect activity in Q2 and this is reflected in below average take-up in most cities. In many cases enquiry levels are holding up, but there is a healthy supply of good space in the market and little pressure on occupiers to commit. With known requirements and the Bank’s renewed quantitative easing programme, we anticipate improved activity in the second half of the year but the Eurozone issues continue to provide the greatest risks to confidence.
