Increased uptake of serviced offices, as choice and quality mushrooms. It wasn’t very long ago that serviced office space was considered a rather modest answer to meeting your office requirements. Many people still (wrongly) believe that serviced offices offer bland, soulless, generic space.
However the supply of serviced offices – aka managed offices – has been growing at a consistent pace in the UK over recent years, with Central London having the lion’s share . Take up has been increasing at a similar or even greater pace to the opening of new serviced office centres, pushing rents up by about 10% in the past year.
Why are serviced offices becoming more popular?
- The standard offered by the operators is much improved in recent years. In London, far more creative & boutique style space is available than ever before, offering an excellent alternative to more corporate, characterless spaces.
- There is a shortage of conventionally-leased space throughout Central London.
- The speed of occupation compared with taking a conventional lease becomes ever more appealing.
- The limited term commitment continues to be attractive in this fast changing economic landscape.
Perhaps most notably, whereas serviced office use was once dominated by start ups and small businesses, it is now being taken by mid-sized companies and major corporates as well.
