Property Industry in Asia Pacific

Cushman & Wakefield’s report also revealed the average office fit-out costs for 31 cities in Asia Pacific. Japan remained as the most expensive office fit-out market in the region for the third consecutive year, with Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya taking the top three spots. 

“A large pipeline of new supply and the consequent impact on rents is offering Indonesian occupiers, particularly in Jakarta, the opportunity to relocate to high quality buildings at similar or, at times, lower costs,” said Dwitje Wangsadiputra, Director, Project & Development Services, Indonesia. 

The Asia Pacific office market has remained resilient, being the only region to have posted consistent, positive office demand since the pandemic began. Looking ahead, we expect a fuller return to the office as higher vaccination allows economies to open more fully, which will potentially drive office demand over the year ahead. Net absorption is forecast to increase from 55 million square feet (msf) in 2021 to around 72msf in 2022 before returning to pre-pandemic levels of around 82msf in 2023. This positive forecast bodes well for the office fit-out market in the region.
