First affordable office investment released into the UK - one of the strongest growing sectors in the UK commercial property market

Press release   •   Mar 22, 2012 03:50 EDT

Due to the current economic climate, there has been a rise in demand for flexible UK office spaces, with many businesses opting for short term contracts and varying occupancy levels.

This flexibility has enabled the office investment sector to thrive throughout the recession, working alongside businesses affected by the downturn enabling them to secure serviced work space to suit their budgets and requirements.

According to Instant, an industry leading office space body, the serviced office investment sector has grown by 18.5% globally since 2008. Fast becoming one of the strongest growing sectors in the commercial property market, serviced offices are becoming a popular solution for businesses and investors alike.

The UK alone accounts for 36% of the global market share with the sector increasing by 13% since 2008. The market also has a positive future outlook with BNP Paribas Real Estate forecasting that the office investment sector will grow by another 4% - 6% over the next 4 years.

The serviced UK office investment market has changed significantly over the past 10 years with the traditional lease-based approach now seen as outdated and unable to keep up with current employment trends.

UK Serviced Office Market
Today, serviced offices account for over 2% of the total commercial property stock (approx. 180m sqft) in the UK, and centres can be found in towns and cities throughout the country.

Ranked in the top 50 markets in Instant's Global Serviced Office Review, Liverpool, UK, has a total workstation capacity of less than 4,000.
